Hi I'm Baleigh

I love Volleyball. I am serving a mission in the Philippines. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to do sports (if I am kind of good at it). My major in College is International Studies which pretty much totally fit with my mission call to the Philippines. I love to do outdoorsy things. Backpacking is my absolute favorite! I love to travel and explore new places. I love hanging out with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe it to be true. Of course I have had doubts and struggles and questions. I have found however, that if we keep striving we will find answers. When I was in High School I had the misconception that the Church was an intolerant organization when it came to the issue of Gay Rights. This really plagued me until I found out I was wrong. The Church isn't interested in hate but is focused on love. They love unconditionally. Once I separated the culture of the church from the actual doctrine I cam to realize a part of the reason I am here is to love everyone. Everyone is equal in Gods eyes and he loves all of his children. That is what the church is about and that is why this is a church is not an intolerant one but a loving one. I am a part of a church full of love. I believe it is true. And I will stand by that and defend it.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of the church. I enjoy the service projects! Last year my Church group cut and put together sanitary napkins to donate to women who needed them but didn't have the means to get them. In a few weeks I am going to be set apart as a Missionary to teach others about the Jesus Christ! I cannot wait for this opportunity (It has been a long time coming).
