Hi I'm Mackenzie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I currently live in Arizona and are parents to a beautiful little girl. We first met at college at BYU-Idaho and moved to Arizona several years later when we graduated. After graduating, I began my career in online marketing and my husband began his in construction management. When we welcomed our first child a little over a year ago, I transitioned to doing freelance work so I can spend the days with our baby. Some of my hobbies include spending time with family, running, and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I've seen first-hand the joy that the gospel brings to people's lives - including my own. I am a happier person when I'm living the gospel principles and believe that other people can experience that same happiness through the lds church.

How I live my faith

I remember several instances in college where kids would find out that I didn't drink or have sex and would be surprised. When they eventually found out I was Mormon, they attributed my lifestyle to my religion. I always tried to correct them and let them know that the Mormon religion merely provides "guidelines" for a happier life - not rules that we are forced to follow. I live the life I live not because I'm forced to, but because I WANT to. I have a testimony of the Mormon church and truly do believe that the guidance provided by church leaders does in fact lead to a happier life.
