Hi I'm Jordan Mckensie

I'm an adrenaline enthusiast. I love: playing lacrosse, snowboarding, and wake boarding and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm an adrenaline enthusiast. I love extreme sports. I grew up 10 minutes from heaven at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah. My friend Corey introduced me to Lacrosse as a kid in 7th grade. From that point on it seems like Lacrosse has surrounded my life. I went to college to play lacrosse and get and education. I have always been into long-boarding, and love that my wasatch mountain backyard provides the best of hills to entertain my itch for adrenaline. I was longboarding on a beautiful summer night. I crashed as I hit gravel along the road. Next thing I knew I was in the hospital in and out of consciousness. I don't remember to much of anything the next two weeks. At the beginning of those two teeks I had emergency brain surgery, and I would spend the rest of that time in the ICU and recovery ward. Before the Surgery I recieved a preisthood blessing, that blessed me to a full recovery. For the next year I was in recuperation. I had to learn how to comprehend books again starting with Dr. Suess. Within months I returned to college, taking physics and other classes. I know the Lord Loves me, has blessed me and has spared my life. I'm so grateful for the blessings of the gospel. I have now taken a brake from my studies for two years to serve the Lord on a mission in North Carolina. My amazing parents support me while I'm away. I have three sisters, a brother inlaw, two nieces and a nephew! Whom I love very much. I love life. I love my savior and I'm a Mormon.  

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the true and complete gospel has been restored to the earth by a loving heavenly father through a living prophet. I'm a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true through a spiritual confirmation from the Holy Spirit, in which I cannot deny. I am a Mormon because the gospel truly gives me peace and happiness in this life, and salvation in the life to come through living the gospel of Jesus Christ, and His grace.

How I live my faith

Currently I am on a mission for the church representing Jesus Christ. My normal day goes as follows: I wake up at six thirty and exercise ( usually pushups and sit ups) I then prepare for the day and eat breakfast. At 8 a.m. I have an hour of personal study (usually the Book of Mormon and an instruction manual on missionary work centered around Jesus Christ called Preach My Gospel). At 9 I study with my roommate (another missionary that is assigned to serve in the same area as me). Then the fun begins as we hit the pavement and find teach and baptize. We take breaks to eat and serve all we can in our assigned areas. We bring the restored gospel to everyone that has an open heart, and willing to find the truth. We return Home and plan the next days activities at 9 p.m. We are in bed by 10:30. I have never been so happy in my life. What more could you ask for then to serve our heavenly father by fulfilling our purpose as missionaries?

In whom should we have faith?

Jesus Christ and Only Jesus Christ Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Jordan Mckensie
All things denote that there is a god. The fact that there is holy volumes of scripture. The Earth and planets and their motion testifies of our God. Science testifies of God. Our bodies testify of God. Reproduction from two individual cells to grow into the most complex living organisms is evidence that God does exist. Most importantly, the Holy Spirit has testified to me that God exists.   Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Jordan Mckensie
Living a purpose filled life. Knowing why you are here, where you came from and where you are going. Feeling confident that the life you are living is what heavenly father wants you to do. Show more Show less
