Hi I'm Hayley Halversen

I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. I love music, church, laughing, and anything uplifting. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Pocatello Idaho... I've always been the artistic type.. Music, especially choir, has had a huge influence on the person I've become. I have a split family, so lots of step brothers and sisters, etc. The more the merrier!

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in the church at age 8 with an innocent burning testimony of Jesus Christ. My naive testimony developed over the years as I struggled through divorced parents, new family, and my mother being diagnosed with stage three breast cancer, among all of the struggles of growing up. In high school I finally started to develop a personal understanding, not dependent on my parents or grandparents beliefs. I chose to read the Book of Mormon over a 3 month period, and through prayer and pondering the things contained in the book, I knew that it was inspired of God. Everything in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is built upon one testament of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon. There is no doubt in my mind that the church is true, and that the Prophets today receive inspired guidance for God's children, and that they guide us in love. The blessings I have received from this gospel, whether they be incredible promises received in the temple, blessings from a patriarch, or the every day tender mercies, I feel Gods love for me through the Atonement as I strive to better myself every day, and through the incredible fellowship and brotherhood I find within the safeguard of this beautiful gospel.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the gospel. I have had leadership callings among my youth peers both in church and also in school in religion classes (seminary council). I am now called to serve as a full time proselyting missionary in the Florida Ft. Lauderdale Mission, speaking Español.
