Hi I'm Haley

I grew up in Minnesota, I am an artist, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old and am currently preparing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I paint and enjoy nature in my free time.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I never fully gained a testimony of this gospel. I became inactive and was pursuing activities that were not in line with the church. During that time, I was the saddest I had ever been and everything seemed to fall apart. But then I realized a simple truth, and it changed the course of my life for the better. It struck me that God brings happiness and love, and Satan brings unhappiness. Shouldn't that be all we need to know in order to follow God's plan? It is so simple yet so important. Happiness and love are our driving forces, we all want to be happy and to feel loved. I knew that God was there, and I knew He had helped me throughout my life, it just took me a while to realize how powerful Satan was and that the desires I had to do things that I knew were not good for me were from Satan. This realization was the missing puzzle piece for me, and I am so glad to have found it. I am a Mormon because I want to be happy like my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ, and one day return to live with them again.

How I live my faith

Throughout the week a prepare lessons for Sunday School where I teach the youth. I love to find and take on service opportunities in my community and through the people of my ward.
