Hi I'm Mackenzie

I am just a southern girl, passionately curious, and in love with learning more about the world and its people, and i'm a mormon.

About Me

Hi. I am an older sister and a daughter in a wonderful family. I'm currently studying Human Development and Family Science at University.. I love to learn in general, but particularly I love learning about the natural world. One of my dreams is to travel and bring principles of natural healing to people all over the world. My ultimate dream though, is to be a mother. Family is the most important investment we can ever make, so I absolutely cannot wait to start my own someday! I truly love helping others and I want to be able to do that throughout my entire life! I love to sing and I love being able to connect with people through music. I love to run. Running has taught me so many valuable lessons and has brought me so many friends and great experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have realized that everything of real worth in my life has come as a direct result of following the teachings of Jesus Christ. Nothing can even begin to compare with the goodness that fills my life when I am striving to live according to what I know to be true. In our world today, it has become increasingly easy to lose sight of what is important, and as a result, be left feeling alone and unimportant. But as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have learned that those feelings do not have to be a part of my life. Because of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for the whole world when He suffered for our sins, we never have to walk the hard road alone. He will always be there as a comfort and the best friend we could ever ask for. He has borne our every pain and sorrow, meaning he knows exactly how we feel at all times in our life. I am a Mormon because I know without a shadow of a doubt that Christ will come again. He loves us and He wants us to someday return back to Him. He wants to help us through our lives, and He will help us as long as we let Him. I am a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet who translated the Book of Mormon and helped to restore the true church upon the earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God sent as another testament of Jesus Christ, and I know that if we abide by its teachings we will come to know Jesus Christ more than ever before. I am a Mormon because I know that without Christ, we are nothing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of what I believe, and I hope that others can see the happiness that it brings me. But the best way to bring happiness into your own life and the lives of others is to serve those around you. When you serve others they can feel of the love that you have for them and it can make a difference in their life, no matter how small the act or deed.
