Hi I'm Bailey

I grew up in the wonderful state of Idaho. I love to laugh and bring joy into the lives of those I meet. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate, a very competitive athlete and have grown up between two brothers. I absolutely love the outdoors; however, some city life is always nice. I have been called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When I return from my mission I plan on attending college to become a general practitioner or a pediatrician. My greatest ambition is to make a positive difference in the lives of the individuals I meet and to help them live more fully. I enjoy playing sports, reading, learning, hiking, anything outdoors, and hanging out with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Although I have grown up in the church, I still went through a personal period of time where I had to come to know for myself if the things which I had been taught were true. During the time I was trying to figure myself out, I was taught through personal experience what an impact friends can have, and more importantly I was able to figure out what I believed in and visualize who I wanted to become. I know that Jesus Christ is the savior of us all and that through him we can return home to live with our father. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have felt a personal witness of the truthfulness of it, and through reading, studying, and pondering the doctrines taught I have gained a greater knowledge of the mysteries of God. I know that Joseph Smith did indeed see God the Father, and his son and that through him, the gospel of Christ was restored on the earth once again. I know that I am a daughter of god, and that we are all his children. I have been so blessed with a wonderful family and I am grateful for the knowledge that I have that we can be together forever!

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith in my everyday actions in becoming more like the savior, Jesus Christ. I know that prayers are answered and enjoy communicating with Heavenly Father daily. I have been called to serve as a Missionary and now have the wonderful opportunity to serve, love, and teach with the spirit the truths of this magnificent gospel. Before I leave, I have been called to be a substitute teacher for the primary (young children) and I have come to love teaching, and learning from them.
