Hi I'm McKayla

I'm a Mormon, Daughter, and a Seeker.

About Me

I am a Latter Day Saint, I am a Daughter and a Seeker. I enjoy the Joy that the Gospel brings to my life. I am a daughter of two loving parents, who have given me the choice to not worship or worship, who have taught me about hard work and becoming my own person. I am at this time, the only member of my family who attends church. I have a goal to go to a church school to become the person i was created to be. Im interested in studying Elementary education, Counseling and Religion. I look forward to my Savior to teach me all he can, and one day have an Eternal Family.

Why I am a Mormon

To have a fullness of Joy. I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Although I was baptised at age 8, and felt the goodness that the Gospel brings. It was not the end of my journey. It is true testimonies need to be nourished in order to grow. I found that in order to have the Savior in my life, to know him and my relationship with Him, I have to "come to Him" myself and continue to follow Him. I began this search after feeling that my life was missing something, although i had many blessings. Gradually, i began to learn about the Gospel through the help of good friends, missionaries, church attendance, The Book of Mormon & Bible, combined with Prayer and the Spirit. As i learned i found all my lifes questions could be answered, and were in the right time and through Gods way. i continue to follow the Plan of Happiness, because i know it works. The Spirit does lead us to Christ, the Savior of the World. He is MY SAVIOR. I know he performed the Atonement and its blessings are open to me, and to those i love. That Light is stronger than any power, it truly works and has all power to heal, cleanse and comfort. I need it. It brings Joy and enhances our understanding of our mission on the Earth. The Lord has allowed his power on the Earth, He restored it through our Prophet Joseph Smith, and we can choose to follow and receive more Joy by following President Thomas S. Monson, The prophet today.

How I live my faith

I find joy in serving my Savior, though i am imperfect. He is happy when i serve his children. I love to be around them at school and at elementary's i serve in. The greatest way i share it is by simply smiling and being happy. When i smile, i tend to be more thankful and serve others around me more. I try to share as much as i can, and improve as much possible.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

1. Read and Pray about the Book of Mormon. Think about what you are reading, write down questions you have had previous, or thoughts you have while you read. Talk about your feelings in Prayer with Heavenly Father and ask for a witness through the Spirit. Pray for a relationship with Jesus Christ, and for help understanding his words. 2. Read the Whole Book and follow Moroni's Promise Moroni 104-5. "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true and if ye shall ask with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things". 3. Don't get discouraged, keep learning and do your best. Heavenly Father Loves you. Show more Show less
