Hi I'm Mckell

I love to laugh and have fun. I recently got married. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A saying that defines me is, "Work hard, play hard." I just graduated with my bachelor's degree in theater several months ago but most recently I got married in the LDS Boston Temple. Right now I'm working two part-time jobs, one at the LDS conference center in Salt Lake City and the other at a local catering company. Life sure is busy with many things to do but I also like to have fun. I'd say that I live a very active lifestyle, or at least try to. Some of my favorite things to do are: rock climbing, hiking, canyoneering, boating including: wake boarding, skiing, kneeboarding, and tubing, snow skiing, swinging in the hammock, watch movies, play games, travel, attend theater shows and playing with my friends and family. I believe in the goodness of others, following through with promises, being on time, good food, warm hands and feet (and looking while doing it!) mixing up the daily routine with something spontaneous, bucket lists, lists in general, and the power of family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I see the good that it brings to people. This church helps people turn their life around so they're in control. I feel the warmth and hope of God's love through His spirit when I am following His commandments and serving those around me. I am also a member because I believe in the promise that we can live with our perfect Father in Heaven after this life, if we do the things He's asked us. We can be forever encircled by His love and we will also be with those we love. It's that end goal that keeps me going and anchors me during my low times. I keep choosing to be Mormon because I lead a much happier life when I do.

How I live my faith

I believe in actively living my faith: Partly because I personally am an active person and always like to be doing something, but also because you grow so much more if you actively live your faith. I try to go to activities with the entire ward as well as those with just the women. I try to serve and help out where ever I can- making meals, sitting by a lonely person at church, learning names of people, etc. I don't like to turn down callings. Instead I rise to the challenge and put my trust in God that he can help me through the rough times.
