Hi I'm Hayley Butts

I grew up in a military family, where we always had to move around and I'm on My mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've recently graduated from high school in 2015, I went to three different highschools and one in particular helped strengthen my testimony because I was the only Mormon in a highly Jewish populated school. I love to sing, read, watch movies, and archery. I plan on going to college after I serve my mission and I plan on one day marrying and having kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Granted most people may see that as the reason why I have stayed. The thing is, even though I was born into this church I still had my tests of beliefs and I have thought about leaving many times. I have thought about leaving cause the standards are too high or maybe I don't believe. Earlier in my profile I had mentioned that I was the only Mormon in my high school at one point, I found myself having to defend my beliefs every day and by doing this I felt my testimony grow. Even though I have a testimony now I still think about leaving but then I think of all the good the gospel has brought into my life, I was able to always make friends no matter where I moved because there were always kids that shared my belief, I loved going to the youth activities, I learned the importance of marriage and kids (something my generation has lost respect for), and many other things. So I have chosen to be a member of this church because it has blessed me beyond measure and I want my kids to have that same opportunity.

How I live my faith

I enjoy teaching the youth classes and I am leaving for a mission soon. I usually just live my faith by just living my standards. For instance I don't watch Rated R movies, all my fiends learned very quickly that I don't watch those type of movies. So my friends would choose movies I could watch and on the occasion where they did watch a rated R movie I would simply leave the room until it was over.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Hayley Butts
we believe that a young man named Joseph Smith, founded the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. he was called of god to be the next prophet. the church is Christ's original church restored on the earth today. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Hayley Butts
we believe that we will eventually be resurrected like Jesus Christ and that we will one day be able to return to heavenly father and live with him. however our choices on earth affect the decision of whether or not we can live with him. we believe that through sacred temple ordinances that we will be able to live with our families in heaven, by being sealed (married for time and eternity) in the temple we will be able to be married to our spouses forever and not just until death do we part.
