Hi I'm Makaela

I grew up in California. I love singing and acting. You will most likely always find me reading a book. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California and I love it there. Growing up I was involved in any and every activity available to me. I played sports, took dance lessons, loved learning and going to school, participated in theatrical productions, and participated in church. I graduated high school in 2013 and have been attending college for the past year. College was great and I look forward to returning to school after I serve an 18 month mission in South Dakota.

Why I am a Mormon

It was only when I discovered the power of Christ's Atonement that I became truly converted to the gospel. I had grown up hearing about how the Atonement was our saving grace, but it wasn't until I actually applied it to my life that I found this to be true. The Atonement free's us from our mistakes and allows us to grow and progress into the person our Heavenly Father knows we can be.

How I live my faith

The best way for me to live my faith is by extending the love I feel from my Savior Jesus Christ to everyone I come in contact with. The gospel has brought so much light and happiness into my life and I'm excited to be able to share this truth with the people of the Rapid City, South Dakota Mission for the next 18 months. I will be able to extend our Savior's love to the people there and teach them how they can know and feel for themselves what I know to be true.
