Hi I'm McKay Morrison

I grew up in Florida and I love to surf. I love the human body. I'm on a mission in Minnesota! Yeah boi! and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Im McKay Morrison and im 20 years old. I was born in New Hampshire, but mostly grew up in Florida. I was very involved with surfing and there were many hurricanes that passed through Florida growing up. The best day surfing was while Hurricane Katrina was in the Gulf of Mexico sending large swells towards the Gulf side of Florida. We moved to Logan, Utah when i was half way through high school. I involved myself with internships and other opportunities to get a better feel for the medical field. I want to be an Orthopedic surgeon. I went from surfing to snowboarding real fast, and went about every day there was snow. I also played rugby and got dominated by Highland Rugby. While tackling someone full speed, I received an elbow to my forehead which resulted in 16 stitches. I went to college in Hawaii where i spent every morning surfing on the famous North Shore of Oahu. I surfed with Jack Johnson as well as Bethany Hamilton (the one arm surfer girl). While in Hawaii I got my mission call to Minnesota where i am currently spreading the gospel to my brothers and sisters from around the world. I know that this church brings happiness and blessings. I feel like i have been on both sides of the fence, but right now i have never been happier!

Why I am a Mormon

To be a member of the LDS church, you have to be a converted at some point... even if you were born into the church like I was. In high school i decided to take different paths in my search for happiness. I wasn't the best member of the church, at points, because of my doubts about the gospel and the happiness that it is "suppose" to bring. As i was at church one Sunday, one of my mentors told me if i wanted to know if the Book of Mormon is true then don't take anyone's word for it. Find out for yourself. He showed me the promise that is given in the Book of Mormon (Moroni 10:3-5). The promise was to read the Book of Mormon and then to pray about it and ask if it is true, and the Holy Ghost will confirm the truth of it. I decided to really find out if it was true or false because i knew that answer would also show me the path that i needed to take. After studying the Book of Mormon I no doubt in my mind that it was true. I know the Book of Mormon is scripture that give us further guidance in life. I know that the Book of Mormon has brought much happiness and gives me so much peace whenever I open it up. My testimony came to me through much study and prayer, as well as experiences that i have had at church. I know that God provides answers to our prayers, and that this gospel brings true happiness.

How I live my faith

Growing up i was very involved with the wonderful youth program put on by the church. I served as a leader in the youth for a time. I live my faith by deciding to serve a full time mission for the church. I was called to be a missionary in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. I think we can all live our faith by trying to follow the example Jesus Christ gave us. People will reconize that we have something that truely makes us happy as we live the standards that The Church of Jesus Christ establishes.

What is the Law of Chastity?

The Law of Chastity is a commandment that god gave us to keep the family closer and happy. It is refrianing from any sexual relations outside the bonds of marriage. Living the law of chastity brings happiness and joy, as well as self-respect. Show more Show less
