Hi I'm McKaye

I am a full time missionary. I love my mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been born and raised just outside of Salt Lake City. I have been extremely blessed to be surrounded by family my entire life. Seriously, I am related to everyone on my street. I played lacrosse in high school where I was lucky enough to be part of an amazing team on and off the field, winning the state championship my Junior year. This past year I have decided that I want to be a high school English teacher. I love reading and writing and I feel like teaching is a career where I can really make a difference in the world, but most importantly in individual lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a righteous family where the gospel is a central part of our lives. I grew up in the church learning about the commandments and scripture stories. I lived and thrived off the testimonies of my parents and older siblings until the age of twelve. It was the youth programs of the church that really made me think and gave me the inspiration and courage to have my own testimony. After reading the Book of Mormon through for the first time, I knelt and prayed to see if it was true. The answer came as clear as day. "You already know it is true." This has been a guiding force in my life ever since. Everything about the gospel just makes sense. It is priceless to know the fact that we have a loving Father in Heaven who loves us. Who sent His Only Begotten Son to suffer and die for us, that we might live with Him again. It is essential in life to know of Jesus Christ and His love for us, and that He understands what we are going through. That we are never alone. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that the gospel is true. I have prayed and been given a witness. I am a member because by living by the guidelines and commandments of God, I have found happiness, comfort, and knowledge beyond anything I ever could have achieved on my own.

How I live my faith

I am a full time missionary serving in the Washington Vancouver Mission. Choosing to serve a mission has brought me closer to Christ than ever before. I believe there is no greater calling, no greater purpose than to be a tool in the hands of God. We live in an exciting time where the gospel has been spread across the world and the work is being hastened. I am extremely blessed and humbled to be called to help build the Kingdom of God.
