Hi I'm McKensey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in college at Brigham Young University. I love learning, and attend college at BYU has been a wonderful experience. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and friends. I love talking to people, and getting to know their perspectives and experiences. I also love to hike, run, and spend time in nature or outside. Most of all, I love God, I love life and all of the incredible people I have met. I am so grateful for God's great mercies and many blessings in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are Mormons, and so I grew up a member of the church. At first I was just a member of the church because the majority of people around me were, but now I am a Mormon because this church makes me so happy. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has completely shaped my life. It gives my life a sense of meaning and purpose. It gives me joy and peace. Mormonism has brought me closer to my Heavenly Father and my Savior. This relationship fills my soul with indescribable joy, peace, comfort, and goodness--this relationship fills my soul completely. I am a Mormon because I love it.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is definitely is more than just a church, it is a lifestyle. It changes the way I live my life in almost every way. I devote myself to the Lord each day--I pray to Him, read my scriptures, and find ways to do service for others. I attend my church meetings, and pray to find ways to improve myself and improve the lives of others. When I am actively living my religion I experience greater joy and more abundant blessings. The peace and joy that fills everyday I live is the result of my merciful God and my beautiful religion. I am so grateful for the rich quality of life that I feel when I live my religion.
