Hi I'm Hailey

I grew up in Syracuse, Utah. I am serving a mission in Santa Rosa, California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am serving in the California, Santa Rosa mission. I love this gospel and being able to share it with people everyday brings me so much happiness! Some of my hobbies are spending time with my family and friends, hiking, traveling, and shopping!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen exactly what this gospel can do for you. I come from a blended family of my mom, step-dad, step-brother, and two half-brothers. My family knew about the church growing up, but we were never active members. There was a lot of contention and negative feelings in our home at this time and our family struggled to stay together. Once my mom made the first step to come back to church our entire family started to change. It wasn't long after my mom went through the temple that my step-dad soon followed and our entire family had the opportunity to get sealed together for eternity. I was 14 years old when we went to the temple and I will never forget that day. Ever since then my family has become active members of the church and we have become closer and happier than ever. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My church calling was teaching the 4-5 year olds in primary. What a great experience it was to teach little children about things like, "who gave them fingers and toes" and "where butterflies came from." It was amazing to see there faces light up when they learned about how much their Heavenly Father loves them and gave them everything in this world. I now am serving a mission in Santa Rosa, California and I am dedicating the next 18 months to serving the Lord.
