Hi I'm Bailie Petersen

I am a dancer. I am preparing to serve an LDS Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I started dancing at the age of 2 and have been on many teams throughout my life. I was on the drill team for three years in high school and went on to be a collegiate dancer for one year. While at college, I made the decision to go serve a mission and am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because I know that this is the truest church on the earth today. I know that Jesus Christ was sent here to die for me so that I can live again. I know that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me and all his children so dearly. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and did restored this amazing gospel to the earth. I know that if we live worthy each day and give thanks to our Father in Heaven, we will be able to kneel at His feet someday and he will proud of us and take us into His arms. I know with all my heart that the temple is the House of the Lord. That it is our duty to attend often, to receive the blessings found therein, and to help our ancestors on the other side who did not have the opportunity to receive those blessings while on this earth. I am so grateful for my knowledge in this gospel. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to serve a mission and am so grateful to say that I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

Each day, I do my best to say my morning prayers to ask for guidance in my day and to thank my Heavenly Father for all my blessings. Each night before I go to bed, I start with prayer to ask for the spirit to be with me as I read my scriptures. I often read one chapter from the Book of Mormon each night and if I feel prompted to read more, than I do so. I end my study by a word of prayer. I attend church each Sunday and am currently taking a class to prepare me to enter the temple.
