Hi I'm Mekenzi

I love to smile and make people feel loved.I love little kids.I enjoy being creative and sharing my talents with others.

About Me

I love my family. I am the 4th of 5 kids. My older siblings have been such great examples to me. I enjoy being apart of a team. When I was little I played softball and I loved it, but i don't anymore. Now I spend my afternoons with my track and weightlifting teams. I trow shot put and discus at track, because I hate running but every now and then I'll run the 100, and that's fun. And I'm really good at weightlifting I always palce first in every competition and love getting stronger, both physicaly and spiritualy. I have recieved my young womens hood recognition at the age of 16, and am currently working on getting it again. I love being a memeber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints. It brings such a joy into my life. I'm happy all the time. Like everywhere I go, I'm always smiling no matter what I'm doing. The people around me notice how happy I am, and ask me "How come you're so happy all the time, like everday?" I just smile and reply "It's because I know that I am a child of God, and I know he loves me no matter what I do"

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a memeber of the church my whole life. I have always gone to church, but it wasn't until I had read the Book of Mormon and gained a testimony for myself did I truly understand what I was living. I know that this is Christ's church and he stands at the head of the church. I know that we have a prophet upon the earth today who leads the church by inspiration and recieves revelation from God so thta we may know what it is we need to do to return home to our father in heaven. I know that I am a child of God and I know he will love me no matter what. Heavenly Father loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son to Earth to atone for our sins so that we may be forgiven of everything we do. I try to live righteously everyday so that our savior didn't die in vain. I know the power of the preisthood is real, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet choosen by God to restore the gospel. I know that familes are FOREVER, if we are married in the temple, and i strive everyday to live worthy to enter into the temple to be sealed to my family for time and all eternity. I know that God has a plan for each of us, and I know that there is more to my life than this time on Earth. I know that the choiced I make now will affect me for now and all of eternity. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, and also the Bible to be the word of God. They go hand in hand, they complement each other. I love being a member of Christ's true church. It gives me comfort to know who I am, where I came from, and where, I'm going.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by the example I set. I love to live the standards of the church. People tell me, they say, "I love you as a person, but I don't like that you're a 'mormon'." And I politely respond by saying, "Well, if you love me as a person, then you love that I'm a mormon, because my personality comes from the values I have been taught as a memer of the church."
