Hi I'm Makelle

I am a missionary. I am a sister of 3. I am a lover of music, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have two brothers and a sister and I love my family. I enjoy reading, listening to music, hanging out with my family and friends, and shopping. I am sophomore at BYU but I have differed my enrollment there to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have grown up in the church and have been taught by faithful parents. I have also found out for myself that this gospel is the truth by reading the Book of Mormon and The Bible. I know that we have a Father in Heaven and he loves every one of us. I also know that we are His children, and that we are all extremely important to our Heavenly Father. He knows all of us and knows what we need from Him. I know that Heavenly Father is always listening when we pray, and He will always give us an answer. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins and that we can pray and ask for forgiveness and our sins can be forgotten and that can become like Him. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord and that he restored this gospel in the Latter Days. This church brings meaning and happiness into my life and I know that it is true, and am so glad to have that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. I love to serve others. I love the feeling that I get when I do. I am also living my faith by serving a mission. I will be serving in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I am very excited for this experience, and cannot wait to share what I know with others. I also live my faith by being an example of Christ. I try my best to be as much like Him as I can be. I know that just by being an example of Him I can share the gospel.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

For me, I have come to know my Father in Heaven by prayer. Prayer is an important aspect of my life and I know that I can always pray to Him. When I am kneeling down to pray, I can feel the love He has for me. I know that He hears and answers all our prayers. Show more Show less
