Hi I'm Mackenzie Shumway

I AM A MISSIONARY AND LOVE IT! I get to serve my mission in Temple Square in Salt Lake city and in North Carolina.

About Me

I am 21 and I am on a mission and I love it I know that I am in the right place in my life. I am the second child of seven there are 5 girls and 2 boys in my family. I am serving a mission I am serving in Salt lake City Temple Square but I have also had the opportunity to be able to serve in the North Carolina Charlotte Mission. I love them both they have been amazing experiences to be able to help people come closer to my Father in Heaven. Serving a mission is the best thing that I have ever done. It has effected my life and the way I live more than any other thing in my life. I am a senor in college I am Working on a bachelors in Accounting. I am hoping to start work on my masters so I will be able to become a CPA.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the church i was born in to the church. However I still had to be converted to the gospel and had to gain my own testimony. My biggest testimony builder was when I left home to start school. I made some wrong choices, some good choices and was able to see how much the church has been able to help me through out my live. That as well as other times I have had the Holy Ghost testify to me of the truth of the church I have been able to shape my life the way I needed to.

How I live my faith

I have learned that it is by the little things that we are able to live our faith. I have found that faith will help you through all things. I love saying that Our father in heaven has a path for each and everyone of us we just get to decide how bumpy the road is. I know that through the scriptures we will be able to find answers to our prayers. My favorite scripture is in Mosiah 7:33 "But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage." I know this to be true and I am glad that When I do my best to go to the Lord he will lead me where I need to be.
