Hi I'm Mikayla

I'm a Texan! I love music and cooking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite sports is running and playing basketball. I enjoy watching rugby but I don't think I could ever play it. I love to bake! All of the unhealthy stuff is my favorite. In my spare time I read. My favorite thing to do is listen to music. I love music! I love listening to music, I love playing music, I love dancing to music, Everything! I also enjoy being with my family, attending seminary (church class in the morning) and young woman's (youth group), and going to school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because the gospel is what makes me happy. I was born and raised in the church but I continue to follow Jesus's teachings because I love him and I know He loves me. I know my Savior wants me to return to Him and I do not want to let Him down. I know that I will one day meet my Savior again, when I do, I want to hug Him, but I want it to be a welcome home hug, not a good-bye hug. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God. I know if I keep my standards I will be happier and will be able to have His spirit with me more often. I know I am a daughter of God with a divine mission. I know if I stay strong I can triumph over evil and return to my Savior.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to volunteer at a horse riding center for handicapped children and adults. It is a very amazing experience working with teenagers around my age who are very humble and sweet. They teach me how to overcome trials and how to just smile when you are having a bad day. These children have a very special light about them and they always make my day! I also get the opportunity to be the music leader in young women's (youth group). This means I get to pick who will play piano and who will lead the music in our class. I enjoy this because it gives me an opportunity to bond with the other girls and learn their talents. This also gives the other girls an opportunity to show off their abilities.
