Hi I'm Halie Goulding

I attend BYU Idaho. I love to smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Central Valley of California and I am currently a full-time missionary serving in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission! I am a deferred student at BYU-Idaho and I had attended for about a year before serving. I participate in the choir because I love to sing! I have played water polo for 6 years and I love it! (: I have three step brothers, two step sisters and one sister who just came home from serving a mission in the Kansas Wichita Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this is the only true gospel in this dispensation. I know that Joseph Smith was called as a prophet of God to restore the gospel here on the earth and I know that God has called Thomas S. Monson to lead the church today. I know that Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ love me. I know that they love my family. I know that they love every single person born on this earth. I know that the Father loves each of us so much that he sent his only begotten son to the earth to be sacrificed for the sins of the world. I love my Father in Heaven and my brother Jesus Christ and because of that, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to those around me. I try my best to emulate the example that Christ has set for us. As I live like Christ lived and follow the commandments I find that my life goes smoother, I am happier, and I am better able to love and understand those around me.
