Hi I'm Missy McKenna

I am southern girl. I am a music student, avid movie watcher, and a traveler! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the Southern United States all my life and have totally loved it! I have played piano since I was five years old and violin since I was eleven. Music equals life. I have decided to continue the music through out the college. In my spare time, which isn't alot but thats ok, I love hanging out with friends, watching movies and then in return quote them in my everyday language. I am also a huge Harry Potter nerd. Love the books, love the movies, and the theme park totally awesome I would highly recommend it! I love to travel and meet new people! I have always been a go getter and have a craving for adventure! I love planning road trips and adventures with my friends! I have served a mission in the Italy, Rome mission and LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon so it was easy for me to just go along for the ride, but when I hit my teenage years I decided that I needed to test out the waters for myself. I read the Book of Mormon and really studied and decided I liked how this church made me feel and I love the peace the Book of Mormon brings. God's word can truely be found in that book. So after I finished reading the Book of Mormon I prayed about everything else I had been taught and I just got this feeling of peace I knew then and I know now that this Gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my actions. I teach women my age in my church and I try to have clean langauage and wear modest clothing. That alone gets people asking. I always try to help where its needed and always stay positive. I know that things will work out because the Lord's hand is in my life.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Missy McKenna
No, we don't worship Joseph Smith, he was the first prophet of this time on the Earth. I know that we believe in God the Eternal Father and in his Son Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost. To us he is like Moses, Abraham and Jocab, he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and gave us revelation and commandments. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Missy McKenna
We are called Mormons because we have the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ. Its very similar to the Bible by it being a record of ancient prophets. The Book of Mormon takes place six hundred years before and four hundred years after the birth of Jesus Christ in America. Soo thats why we get the nickname Mormons. Show more Show less
