Hi I'm Macaia Sanders

I grew up in Argentina but I live in Arizona. I coach and play soccer, I love the outdoors and adventure and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Argentina but I live in Arizona. I have been married for almost 13 years and have 4 kids and a foster son who we're planning on adopting. I am finishing a Bachelors in Criminal Justice. I coach soccer for 2 youth teams which my kids play in. I also play soccer in an adult co-ed league. I'm a playground aide at the school my kids attend. I'm very involved in scouting and I help train leaders become great leaders! I am also an advisor for an all girl Venturing Crew and we go on high adventures often. I serve in a scout committee where I help youth through the process of becoming an Eagle scout. I love my life!!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the church at 16 when I lived in Argentina. Missionaries came to teach my family and we were all baptized on the same day. Being a mormon is more than what I believe. It's the way I live. I believe in our Savior Jesus Christ and I know he lives. I believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. I have felt the Holy Spirit testify the truth of it to my mind and heart. Living the Gospel doesn't make my challenges any smaller. It makes them easier to deal with and it helps me see their purpose. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ makes me happy and brings peace to my heart.

How I live my faith

I am currently helping teach and train the wonderful leaders in our church who work with the children. I also work with scout leaders to help them become better trained and prepared to teach the cub scouts. I organize a yearly pinewood derby for about 200 cub scouts and a yearly cub scout day camp for about the same number of boys. I also serve in a scout committee where I help youth through their process of becoming an Eagle scout. I love every minute I give of my time to serve others!
