Hi I'm MacKenzie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey yall, I'm MacKenzie, and I'm a Mormon from Alabama. I am eighteen years old, and this year I am going to attend BYU in Provo, Utah. I have an older sister of nineteen and a younger brother that is almost seventeen. My parents have been divorced twice, and I live with my father (my mother is about 5 horurs away). I played basketball on my high school varsity team with my dad as the head coach. I was also the mascot at my school, which I absolutely love. I would say I am pretty school spirited, which I think more people should be. It's actually fun. I especially enjoy going to church and spending time with my fellow youth. I am the only Mormon at my high school, besides a few family members, but I always make time for my church friends who can have fun without doing things that are now widely tolerated by the world. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I love being able to help people:)

Why I am a Mormon

It would be easy for me to say that I am a Mormon because that's how I was raised, but that wouldn't be very fair. Yes, it was definitely a big influence and help to be born into this church, which I am very grateful for, but that is not why I'm still in the church. I have remained in this wonderful church because of the many ways in which my life has been blessed by it's presence in my life. It keeps me morally upright, which is so hard to do in our world today. My testimony in this church is firm, and I absolutely love it.

How I live my faith

I always try to be a leader and an example no matter what. Being a youth I have been able to serve in class presidencies on a few different occasions. I have also had the opportunity to plan a couple of dances, one of which I was told mutiple times was the best dance people had ever been too. I love being able to serve others. At school I have planned service projects quite a few times with my classmates. It always gives me great pleasure just to be able to make people smile.
