Hi I'm M'kaaylie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently attending college, getting my degree in Music Ed. I have been playing the clarinet for 7 years and recently picked up the bass clarinet a year ago. I love to ballroom dance and I was on my university's Bronze Ballroom Dance Team Spring 2011. I also enjoy debate. I debated 2 years in high school and even made it to State for Impromptu. I am also into theatre. I've been performing in plays and musicals for as long as I can remember. I am involved with a lot of things and have a job on top of all that, but I still always manage to find time to have fun with my friends, roommates and 5 younger siblings. Some of my favorite past times with them are playing silly games, going to events like concerts and band tournaments, and church activities like girls camp and FHE.

Why I am a Mormon

My family is LDS so I was born and raised in the church. When I was young my testimony relied heavily on my parent's testimony, but as I got older and learned more I started to gain a testimony for myself. I began attending church because I wanted to, not because I had to. I prayed and received a confirmation that this was the true church. I have also had experiences where I really needed help and the Spirit was there to guide and comfort me. These experiences have been such a testament to me of the truthfulness of this gospel and of the love my Heavenly Father has for me.

How I live my faith

I am living on my own now and it is my responsibility to get myself up, ready, and to church on time. I get there a couple minutes early every week because I am the ward chorister and I need to make sure the music is all ready. I work in a place where not very many people are LDS and I get my standards and beliefs questioned every day. It is important for me to stay strong and be a good example for those around me. When I tell my friends about the church they know how important it is to me because I don't just preach it, I live it, and they can see that in my every day life.
