Hi I'm McKenna

I'm a born and raised Montanan, I major in History Education, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is McKenna, I'm 18 and so ready for college. I LOVE to sing. I coach soccer for kids in the age group 11 to 14. I work at a Dentist office, and love every minute of it. My family is my life, and I love all of them dearly. I love to bake, and give my creations away. Tennis is my game, and I could play it every day for the rest of my life. I love this gospel and the way it makes me feel, and I would never give that up for anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. My Dad was Bishop of our ward ever since I can remember, it was more pressure when he was called to be Stake President a few years after being released as Bishop. I always knew it was true, but I didn't have a testimony of my own until just recently actually. I am grateful for the teaching of my parents and my siblings. I can't help but realize that after 18 years, the things that have been taught to me throughout my life couldn't have been a lie. The scriptures opened up to me recently, and there was passion and a burning that I have never felt before in my life. The Gospel is more real to me now than it has been ever. I hope now that I can turn my life around just as Alma did in the Book of Mormon, or as Saul felt after the Angel appeared to him during his travels. I know, without an ounce of doubt, that this church is true. The Prophet, Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet called of God. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, died for ME, and I stand in awe every time I actually sit and think about that sacrifice that He gave, and well as Heavenly Father. I thank God for my family, and the people I have in my life. They influence me every day, and make me who I am.

How I live my faith

The church has given me the opportunity to expand in my love of music. I'm currently called as the Chorister of our congregation. It brings me great joy to be in front of people (which I personally love doing) and singing some of my favorite songs of all time. The joys of doing something I love as well as serving the Lord is a fulfilling calling. Living in a small town such as mine I don't have many friends that are members, and the people I am closest too now are not LDS. I try hard to set examples for them, and although sometimes I stumble, fall, and make mistakes, I always know that I have the church, my family and my friends too fall back on. I am always telling people I'm "Mormon" or LDS. I flaunt my faith because it not only makes me different, but it also is an awesome conversation starter. (:
