Hi I'm McKenna

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a beautiful family that I love. I enjoy traveling and going to the lake. I attended BYU-Idaho for a semester and studied Public Health. I am now serving as a full-time missionary in the Texas Houston Spanish speaking mission!

Why I am a Mormon

The church brings blessings to my life everyday! I am so grateful that the gospel is in my family's life, and that it could follow into mine. I have an overwhelming testimony of the church and its teachings. I have a testimony of the scriptures and that they were written by men inspired by the Lord. I have a testimony of priesthood power and know the church could not function without it. I have experienced the power and blessings of prayer. Last but not least i know the importance of eternal families, and that if we are worthy we can live with them, God, and Christ.

How I live my faith

About a year ago the Gilbert, Arizona temple was dedicated. It was very close to my home so began going almost every week. It brought such peace and purpose to my life. It has shown me how I can further my relationship with my loving Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I love attending the temple.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

McKenna
I have had the honor of attending baptisms for the dead almost every week for a year. It is an amazing experience and strengthens my faith every time I go. Many people who have died haven't had the opportunity to be baptized, and being baptized is essential to enter into God's kingdom. A living person acts as a proxy for a deceased person and is baptized in place of them. The deceased person has the choice in heaven to accept the baptism or reject it-agency still exists after death. This great ordinance allows those who have passed to live in spirit paradise and gain eternal salvation. Show more Show less
