Hi I'm Bailey

I am a full-time missionary in McAllen, Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a very small town with my two brothers and sister. My favorite thing is playing basketball and volleyball. I enjoy everything outdoors, camping, fishing, riding four-wheelers, shooting guns, and bonfires. I also love to read, play the piano, and listen to music. My favorite color is purple and I love cats. I love school and will be returning to college after my mission. My friends and family are everything to me!

Why I am a Mormon

Family is central in the gospel. I have a firm testimony that families can be together forever and can be sealed for eternity. That is my motivation to keep going and keep being faithful. It is our ultimate goal, to live faithfully on this earth so that we can become like God and live with him and our families for forever. I cannot think of a greater blessing. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and through him is the only way that we can receive the great blessing of living with our families forever. He has shown us the way and will help us follow him. I have a testimony of prayer. I know that God hears and answers every single one of my prayers. Answers don't always come in the way that we want them to but always in the way that is best for us. I love the Book of Mormon and it is becoming such a big blessing in my life. I always find answers and hope when I read. The more you read the easier it gets to understand. I can always tell a difference in my day when I don't read and study the Book of Mormon. I know that this gospel is true and that it was restored through Joseph Smith. I know that we have a living prophet today and I am so grateful for the revelation that he receives and the guidance that he gives to us. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one and only true church on this earth. God is our Heavenly Father and he loves us.

How I live my faith

I grew up going to church with my family and serving in many callings. I pray and read my scriptures everyday. Right now I am living my faith my serving a full-time mission in the Texas McAllen Mission speaking Spanish.
