Hi I'm Haley

I'm an artist. I am the middle child of 5. I live in the golden state of California. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student Brigham Young University with a major in Dietetics and a in minor art. I have been doing art since I was a little girl and it makes up a huge part of my life. I can spend hours on an art piece, getting lost in the world that it creates. When I'm not doing art, I usually have my nose stuck in a book. I also love swimming and any sport that has to do with the water. I live in the beautiful Napa Valley and love to hike and explore the outdoors. I am the middle child of 5 and I love my family more than anything. They have supported me through thick and thin and helped me develop and grow. I have pursued higher goals because of them and they are constantly challenging me to go above and beyond.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the Napa Valley--know exclusively for wine and alcohol--I am no stranger to those who ridicule and question the church. I have been teased and challenged because of my religion. I cannot count how many times I have been asked how I can stay true to my faith in a place where wine flows as easily as water. The answer is simple. I am a Mormon because I know of the truth of the gospel. I can feel the Lord's hand in my life and I can see the blessings that I am given for following his commandments. There is nothing that can dissuade me from the faith that I have. Because of this church, I know what true happiness is. I know my purpose in this life. I know the role that I play. I am a Mormon because I know.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in such a way that I can imagine angels walking beside me. I volunteer at every chance I am given and give freely to my community with the hope of making even the smallest change to someone's life. I have been given the opportunity to serve a mission in the Colorado Denver North Mission and I am so grateful for it. I am able to wholly dedicate 18 months of my life to Lord and I can think of no better way to show my faith than to serve those around me with love.The Lord gave his life for me and, for that, I will live my life for Him.
