Hi I'm Micaela Wright

I'm a senior in high school. I'm a tennis player. I'm a future longhorn. I'm a daughter of God and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying media advertising at the best university on earth. I love college football and am a crazed tennis fan. I love spending time outside and playing sports, along with spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

A large portion of the LDS population is born into the church. I was and my parents were. But that's not why I'm Mormon. Im a Mormon because I feel Gods spirit everyday. I feel the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is true. I could easily tell my parents that I don't believe what they do and stop going. But, that would be betraying myself and more importantly, it would be betraying my Father and my Elder Brother. I'm Mormon because, in this world of sin and confusion, I find indescribable peace in the teachings of the LDS church; I find peace that I can be with my family forever, no matter when they're taken from me; and I find comfort that I am never alone, because I know that I always have Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith through example. Obviously, no one is perfect, but I try not to do anything I wouldn't do in front of Jesus. My mom serves the youth in our area, so I get to help her with that. I was also a class president in our church. But, mostly, I live my faith by trying to do as Christ would. I don't want anyone to feel alone in this world. I share my beliefs as the Spirit prompts. If I can help one person, the day was worth living.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Micaela Wright
We don't worship the Prophet Joseph. We revere him. He was an amazing man who was brave enough to restore the gospel to the earth. He made our life possible, so we feel a great amount of gratitude and reverence for him. Show more Show less
