Hi I'm Allie McKenzie

I'm from Buena Park, California. I served an 18 month mission in the Texas San Antonio Mission. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived a pretty good, fun life. I grew up where summers were always spent outside in the sun, playing in the water, and most importantly with my family. I have my two parents whom l absolutely love and, who have constantly pushed me to become my best everyday. I also have my crazy sisters and brothers who have always been the entertainment that I needed. Without them all, I would not be who I am; I adore my family! I attended pretty much all my years of schooling in California, where I participated heavily in the music programs and sports offered. I played Water Polo, but that ended soon when I had surgery on my knee. A lot of physical things ended because of broken bones and sprained/pulled muscles! :) I attended college at a junior college, and enjoyed my time learning each day. There were things that I would rather have been doing during countless hours of classes, but I went because I value knowledge and wisdom of all subjects. I first focused on an Art Major for Animation and Cartooning, but those plans paused when I decided to serve a full-time mission for the Church. So I focused on my General Education, until I turned my mission papers in. I always knew that I would serve a full-time mission. I can honestly say that I LOVED being there in Texas, serving for Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Being a Representative for Him was and still is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

There have been times in my life where I have questioned its doctrines and teachings, but have always received a witness by the power of the Holy Ghost that what I have been taught is true. If you need that confirmation, do as Moroni (10:3-5; pg. 529) directs; Read, Ponder, and Ask! You will know just like I do!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remembering my full-time service as a missionary in the Texas San Antonio Mission. I try to talk to people everyday, testifying of the Lords truth and divinity.
