Hi I'm Makall

Returned missionary, hair stylist, early morning seminary teacher. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am one of 6 kids! I have lived in Utah, Idaho, New Mexico and Nebraska! I am a hair stylist. I love meeting people and being their friend. I love trying new things! Most everything makes me happy. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Illinois Nauvoo Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I felt the joy and peace that this gospel brings. I was born into the church and baptized at age 8, which is typical for most mormon families. I really did love going to church on sundays growing up. I loved reading the scriptures together with my family and having family prayer. I knew that these things made me happy. But I needed to find out for myself if this really is the true church! A few years ago I read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover for the first time. I prayed sincerely after to know from God, if this book is true. It's hard to describe the exact feeling, but it was pure happiness, excitement, peace, comfort, and love all in one! I knew that that was God and the Holy Spirit telling me that it is true. As I have grown up, I have seen others who aren't happy or don't make very good choices. I knew that I didn't want my life to be that way! And through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have found the exact way that I want to continue living my life! I know that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins, because of that it allows all of us to try again, and become more like Him.

How I live my faith

I do my very best everyday to live my faith. I believe that you don't just choose to live your faith once or twice a week. If you really believe, you'll live that everyday! So I do my best. I go to church, the temple, pray, and read the Book of Mormon and Bible daily. Through these things I am learning more about the Savior Jesus Christ. He is our perfect example! Why wouldn't we want to follow somebody who is perfect?
