Hi I'm Terry Ha

I grew up in Los Angeles. I am a Korean-American that goes to BYU and is called to the New York South Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Korean-American, born in Sierra Vista, AZ, but raised all my life in Los Angeles. I have been playing the piano since I was in the 1st grade and started golf around the same time as well. In my latter years, I picked up basketball as a hobby, played for my high school. And now, I attend college at BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, however while I was growing up I have always gone to church only because my parents said so. However, the older I got, the more I realized why they wanted me to come. I have come to realize that I am so eternally blessed, with the family and friends that I have, who support me when I could not do it myself. It is a blessing from the heavens, to encourage me to make the decisions that I make, from something small like praying, to something huge like going on a mission. I believe that I continue to live of His words because I am eternally indebted unto Him. With the many sins and temptations that have come across in my life, I want to show that I can work hard, having obedience in keeping the commandments that he has given us. The right pathway, is the strait and narrow, but the results are that of eternal and infinite.

How I live my faith

My faith has grown exponentially over the course of this past year at BYU. It is an amazing experience, where I not only get to feel the Spirit in almost every class, but the students, faculty, and staff members emphasize secular education coupled with that of our religious knowledge. I have learned that faith is not what you see, but what you seek, by pondering and praying to our Heavenly Father. He not only guides us with the Holy Spirit to increase our faith, but gives us opportunities such as the holy scriptures to strengthen our testimony of this gospel as well. Church callings have definitely played a role in my life, especially when consistency and practice matters. Whether it be playing the piano for the congregation or teaching a certain class, church callings utilizes your faith, and utilize you to act as an instrument of God.
