Hi I'm Baylee

Sister. Friend. Hiking Enthusiast. Volleyball Supporter. Future Missionary. Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from Timpanogos High School, and I have been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Tijuana Mexico. When do I report? November 21. Do I speak Spanish? Not yet. Am I excited? YESSSSSS! In high school I played on my school's volleyball team, and student council. I loved watching school sporting events, attending dances, and learning in the classroom! I plan on attending Brigham Young University to pursue my passions in learning and business after serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Since the day I was born I learned stories from the scriptures, attended weekly church meetings, and heard my parents bare testimony of Jesus Christ. Although I grew up constantly surrounded by the gospel, it required internal questioning for me to know of the truthfulness of the gospel for myself. Gradually I developed my own testimony for Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon and the restoration of the gospel as I attended church meetings, studied the scriptures, participated in seminary and practiced what our prophets have asked us to do. While I may have felt discouraged at times, I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and Redeemer. I know that living prophets today act as the mouthpiece of God. Living the gospel gives me peace, joy and hope, even when circumstances appear bleak. Ultimately, my life is BETTER by living the gospel.

How I live my faith

The principles of the gospel can apply to every aspect of life. Right now as a 5th - 6th grade volleyball coach I try to let my team know that I care about them, and I want them to succeed as I teach them the fundamentals of the game. I believe Christ wants all of us to feel supported and loved, as we pursue positive things in our life. Currently in my ward, I have been called as a "ward missionary." For this calling I visit with less active members in my ward to help them know that they are loved by their savior and other members in our ward.
