Hi I'm Bailey

I grew up on a farm in Idaho. I've been called to serve in the Hawaii Honolulu Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with my family, working on the family farm, playing the piano, cross-country skiing, making quilts, reading, drawing, making cookies for my little brothers, and spending time with friends. I completed one year of college at BYU-Idaho and am studying to be an Elementary school teacher. I love kids and I love learning. I want to be a help to others and live a life of service.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings so much joy and peace to my life. I can't imagine living in the crazy world we do without the knowledge of the gospel. I am so grateful for the knowledge it gives me of Christ's Atonement, Heavenly Father's plan of salvation, and of the fact that I can be with my family forever. I have been taught and I have come to know for myself that I am a child of God and He loves me. He knows that I will make mistakes and go through trials here on earth so He has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to make it possible for me to be able to make it back to Him, through the Atonement. Because of Christ's Atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins, strengthened through trials, and we can feel of our Heavenly Father's and Christ's love for us and for everyone. I am so grateful for all of these truths and so many more that I have been taught and that I have been able to gain a testimony of for myself.

How I live my faith

While in my ward at college, I had the opportunity to plan events for the rest of ward with a group of other college kids. We planned things to do that would get the ward together and help people get to know each other better while having fun. I also was able to visit with and teach a few other girls in my apartment building who have become good friends of mine. Now that I'm home I get to help my sister teach a class of 14 year-olds when she needs me. I also go with my family and ward to help with service projects for the community.
