Haley Deasy

Care & Serve Team Coordinator

I was 5 years old when I placed my faith in Jesus at the foot of my bed. The prayer was simple enough, but I didn’t understand just who God or Jesus were until I was much older. After leaving the legalism, hymns, and pantyhose behind, I discovered Grace Church with my family in June of 2007. I had to weather many storms in my teens to early twenties, but in the process I learned just who God was and what grace meant. My heart and spirit are still a work in progress as they will be till I take my last breath, but I’m so excited to see where God will take me next in this crazy journey called life!

One thing people don't know about you?

I attend pop-culture conventions all over the country! I actually design and sew costumes for these large nerd gatherings with the help of my best friend. It’s really a strange but fun passion of mine!

What is your favorite movie?

I love anything by Monty Python, but my favorite would be Monty Python and the Holy Grail! There’s nothing better than dry British humor except maybe awkward British humor.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Until I was about five, I wanted to be a velociraptor. When I got older and learned that people didn’t just turn into dinosaurs, I decided I wanted to be an actor. It’s a shame I never got the chance to play a part in Jurassic Park.

What is your favorite quote?

This is such a tough question … I really love quotes from Frank Herbert’s novel, Dune. Some of my favorite quotes are:

“Try looking into that place where you dare not look! You'll find me there, staring out at you!” My husband says this quote to me, and it cracks me up every time.

“Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic,” and of course, “Fear is the mind-killer,” are both great quotes.

What is your favorite book?

I love anything by Jane Austen. The woman was and is literary genius as well as downright hilarious. Pride and Prejudice would probably be my favorite out of her works, but Love and Friendship and Other Youthful Writings is a very close second.
