Hi I'm Halee

I grew up in Utah. I am 19 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have one sister and three brothers. My hobbies include volleyball, basketball, softball, camping, and riding horses. I attended one year of college last year but have put my education on hold to serve a full time LDS mission, starting October 14th, 2015.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the LDS church all of my life, I grew up in it. Everyone in my family is LDS. I've never doubted that this is the only true church, I've always had a testimony of it. However, there was a point in my life where it wasn't that important to me and I became inactive for a few months. Those were without a doubt the worst months of my life. You don't realize what a blessing the gospel is in your life until you don't have it anymore. My sister helped me to have the desire to start coming back to church, after which I received my patriarchal blessing and made the decision to serve a mission. I know that this is the only true church. I know this church was restored on this earth by our Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet and we can receive word from our Heavenly Father through Him. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that through prayer we can communicate with our Heavenly Father. I know that the atonement works, and it is such a blessing to have it in our lives. I know that He has a plan for us to return home to Him and if we follow Him and keep His commandments we will have eternal life. I know that His love for us is unconditional and that we are always worthy of His love no matter what we have done. I know that He wants us to always be happy. I know that families can be together forever and I'm so very thankful for that because I love my family very much, and I love this gospel, it is such a huge blessing in my life. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I'm currently in the primary, teaching 10-11 year old girls. I enjoy it very much, they are so fun!
