Hi I'm Mikayla

I am a Utahn, born and raised. I play music in tandem with my heartbeats. I'm a mormon.

About Me

Music is my life. Guitar, Piano, Radio, Rhythm, Opera, Harmonica . . . I love to listen and I love to play! I'm a young single adult attending college to become an Elementary School teacher. The quiet peace of the outdoors makes me ponderous, which makes me read, which makes me write. Words, and music. Words and music and kids and laughter is my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at the tender age of 8 years old. I was young, I was only a child. Yet in my simple understanding, I knew my new discipleship and conversion was not just a good idea--it was truth. A warm felicity entered my heart as soon as I emerged from the waters of baptism, and I knew from that moment this church was true. Through obeying the commandments and reading the holy scriptures, including the Book of Mormon, I have come to know a man named Jesus Christ. He lived over 2000 years ago. He healed the sick, caused the blind to see, and raised the dead. He served all people he encountered with sincere kindness. He even submitted his will to suffer for my pains, insecurities, and sins in the Garden of Gethsemane. He died in order to rise again, reuniting his spirit with flesh in a restored and perfect resurrected body. I know he is a true and living man and invite you to come to know and love him! I want with all my heart to live and serve as he did, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ allows me to do so.

How I live my faith

I invite other young ladies in my area to come to dances, parties, game nights, hikes, and campouts with other young single adults of my same faith. I usually bring my guitar--its a great way to connect with others through song and strings. The friendship these women and I have grown to share allows us to have trust in each other. The service we render together strengthens our understanding of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
