Hi I'm Nellie Mackey

I'm finding my way, I have Faith, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My real name is Danielle but my family calls me Nellie. I grew up in a small country town in northern california. I come from a family of 6, 4 kids. I have the two harderst working parents. My brother Nick is deaf and has taught me a lot of life lessons. I returned from my mission from the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission. I had to come home early for lots of medical purposes but was the best experience of my life. I am still trying to figure out what path the Lord needs for me but I have faith and Hope it will work out the way it needs to. I LOVE being out doors, rock climbing, canyoneering, playing the piano, being with my wonderful family, being in the water, cooking, painting, and being around people i love.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but when i hit age 14 i wanted to know for myself if the church was true. I didnt know anything different. I star ted going to different churchs (baptist, different christian churchs, catholic) with friends of mine seeing the difference. Each place i went to didnt feel right. i felt there was something missing. After experiencing all that, i finally told God i would read the Book of Mormon and once I read it i wanted to know if it was true or not. Reading it was such a testimony to me that it IS true. I felt complete, i felt Goodness, I felt God answering my prayers the more and more i read. The way it testified about Jesus Christ. I knew right then in my heart and soul that i was in the true church of Jesus Christ. I felt like i was whole reading, praying, attending the church of jesus christ of latter day saints.

How I live my faith

I understand that I am a child of God. Truly, we are all literal sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. I live my faith by being obedient and following Gods commandments. yes, life is hard but living in a righteous way makes it so much easier. I love helping people in any way i can, accepting everyone has a child of God. I served a part time mission which was amazing to preach the gospel. Just being a witness of God in all times, in all things, and in all places. Being an example of my Jesus Christ through my actions and words. I am not perfect. But God understands that and as long as I try, he will be walking right beside me.
