Hi I'm Libby Staley

I love the outdoors. I like to try new things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am loving life! I enjoy the outdoors and activities like hiking, camping, and especially fishing. I love to make people laugh, serve the community, and explore new places. Most of the time I eat spicy food, but I'll eat anything. I attend BYU-Idaho and I'm studying to be an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. I hope to become fluent in as many languages as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can't see myself living any other way. I feel immense joy as I serve Heavenly Father through this church. When I read the scriptures and follow all of the Lord's commandments, I receive confirmation that it is true through the Holy Ghost. I love knowing that through the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ I can live with my family forever. Even though I grew up in the Mormon church, I had many opportunities to learn about other religions. I know that all churches have some truth to them, but this is the only church with the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God. i know that Thomas S. Monson is his rightful successor today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know for a fact that Christ lives again.

How I live my faith

I simply follow the commandments to live my faith. Things like paying tithes and fast offerings, obeying the Word of Wisdom and Law of Chastity, and especially loving others as best I can. We learn in the scriptures that without charity we are nothing. If I want to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ I have to continually strive for charity. Once we have obtained that attribute, all of the others will come naturally. Another big way is serving a mission. I served in the California San Jose Mission.
