Hi I'm Mikaela

I grew up in Colorado. I am a ballet dancer. I am a missionary learning chinese. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest in a family of four. I have 3 younger sisters who I love and adore! I am a ballet dancer and have been dancing for 14 years. I also love lyircal, ballroom, modern, jazz and tap. I love music and singing as well! I grew up in the beautiful state of Colorado. I love running, hiking, water skiing, and snow boarding with my family. I was a student studying ballet with a minor in music however I am taking a break and currently serving as a chinese speaking missionary in the England Manchester Mission. I LOVE being a missionary and inviting others to come unto Jesus Christ every single day!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church, however this gospel is a gospel based on individual faith. I am Mormon and believe in this gospel because I have studied it out on my own. I have read the Book of Mormon for myself and have asked my Heavenly Father if it is true. I have developed a firm and personal testimony of the love that our Heavenly Father has for each of his children. I have come to know of it's truthfullness throughout my life, and it continues to bless my life every single day. This gospel and faith brings you to your Father in Heaven and to your Savior Jesus Christ. It is only by and through him that we can repent of our sins and become forgiven. This church and gospel has given me the opportunity to come unto my Savior and to learn of him and strive to become like him. I am Mormon becuase I have come to know it for myself and I have asked my Father in Heaven if it is true. I KNOW that it is true. I cannot deny the feelings of love and confirmation that I have felt of this truthfullness through the peace that the spirit brings. This is why I am Mormon, and why I am dedicating a year and a half of my life to sharing this knowledge and joy with others. I love my Saviour! I know that he lives! This gospel is true! It brings me so much joy! Everyday I praise and thank my Heavenly Father for the many blessings and miracles and tender mercies in my life. "Press forward with a steadfastness in Christ having a perfect brightness of hope and a love of God and of all men."

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. I have found that every single day is filled with the joy and miracles of Jesus Christ's gospel. I live my faith by striving everyday to recognize those miracles and to emulate the light of Jesus Christ in all that I say and do. Each day provides the opporunity to choose to be happy, to rely on and remember our Savior Jesus Christ and the perfect plan of happiness of our Father in Heaven. I cannot help but smile because living this faith and partaking of the blessings is one of the most joyous things! It is faith in Jesus Christ that helps us overcome anything and everything in this life. Obedience to the commandments and covenants as wel provide the way that we can attain that pure joy that the Atonement of Jesus Christ has to offer us. Living this faith is not a burden but a freedom and an incredible blessing. It truly is a faith and gospel of joy! This gospel is such a huge part of my life. Because I love my Savior and beacuse this gospel brings me so much joy I have decided to dedicate a year and a half of my life in serving as one of the Lord's missionaries. I am currently serving as a missionary in the England Manchester Mission speaking Mandarin Chinese.
