Hi I'm Heather Heilesen

I'm from Arizona. I have a passion for band. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student majoring in Therapeutic Recreation hoping to become a Recreational Therapist! I have a great passion for music and Bob Ross paintings! I love marching band, and play 5 different instruments including the french horn, flute, mellophone, trumpet, and piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have a strong testimony in God, Jesus Christ, and the Restoration of the Gospel. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. It testifies of Christ, speaks truth, and helps me live a more Christ-like life. I know Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet who receives direct guidance from God, our loving Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because the Gospel brings me happiness and helps me progress in this life.

How I live my faith

I love going to church and feeling the peace it brings into my life. My calling in the ward is a "Spotlighter" so I recognize and introduce women in the ward! I love my calling because it gives me the neat opportunity to get to know the amazing women I have in my ward. I have also been a youth camp leader at girls camp, a counselor, and a secretary. All of these church callings have helped me grow closer to my Savior and Heavenly Father. Even in tough times, serving others has brought me so much joy and happiness.
