Hi I'm Claire Makela

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Claire Makela. I am a freshman in high school, a piano player, singer, and writer. As of right now, I am also the only member of the church in my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because before I was baptized, I gained a testimony that this church was true and it is a wonderful life-change. I was converted when I was 13 years old by my best friend and I have not regretted it. This church is the true church, I know it with all my heart. I know I am still a young daughter of God, and I still have some progression to do. I think we all do, and with the help of our Heavenly Father we can achieve that eternal goal.

How I live my faith

Being in high school, and the only member in my family I know that living my faith is not always the easiest. But, I have a testimony that the power of prayer and scriptures can help anyone through anything. Life can be difficult, and we all can't do it alone. So I turn to the Lord, with a sincere heart.
