Hi I'm Mikailei

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Sugar City. I grew up in a Mormon community, without a Mormon family.

About Me

I enjoy playing sports. I played volleyball, basketball, and ran track in high school. I currently attend BYU-Idaho, and I am engaged to the love of my life. We will be sealed in the Rexburg, Idaho Temple on January 12, 2013. I am planning on getting my degree in nursing, and I would like to be a Labor/Delievery nurse. I can't wait to make a wife and a mother someday.

Why I am a Mormon

As I stated, I grew up in a community full of Mormons, without Mormon parents. Initially, I had friends that would invite me to church, and I also had my mother's parents that were LDS. I was baptized at the age of 10, by my eldest brother. I took my baptismal covenants lightly at the time. I grew up into a rebellious teenager and moved 5 hours away in a community a little less LDS savvy. Though I knew that I always wanted to be married in the temple I didn't live my life accordingly. At the age of 18 I realized that soon I would want to be married considering the fact that I had a boyfriend for the past 8 months (which in our religion is a long time for that age) I had a talk with him (he grew up with parents active in the church) and asked him if he wanted to be married in the temple. He knew that was something that he always wanted, and I knew it too. So we spent the next few months working on our repentance, and it was no easy task. Every Mormon has to learn for themselves why they believe what they believe, and though mine came later in life it still came. Even Mormons baptized at the age of 8 whether they have learned it by then or forced by their parents will still have this experience and realize why they are. The Lord's work will be done (:

How I live my faith

I just recently became active in the church. I attend all church meetings unless I am sick. I meet with the bishop regularly. I attend a church sponsored institution. I read my Book of Mormon and pray daily.
