Hi I'm McKenzie

I'm a student at BYU. I'm trying to trying to figure out life and live the dream. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho where I lived my whole life until I came to college in Utah. I'm studying Communication Disorders to become a speech therapist. I love running and hiking, the outdoors is a beautiful place. I love my family they are a huge part of my life and I am so grateful that they have always been there for me. Recently I was called to serve a mission in Cebu Philippines and I am incredibly excited and nervous and mostly excited to begin this new adventure in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. From the time I could understand my parents have taught me about Christ and the church. I was taught and learned to believe. When I was in high school I began to struggle with my faith that I had alot of doubts and questions. I was tired of not knowing and I decided to learn for myself what was true, I began studying the Bible and the Book of Mormon and praying for understanding. I began analyzing my own life and I realized that the gospel has made me better. It gives me hope that no matter what, my brother and Savior, Jesus Christ is there reaching out to me. I love what the church teaches about families, I can be with my family forever and we will continue to progress and grow in love and knowlege forever! I have a father in heaven who loves me and who loves you! I have realized that this knowledge has brought me incredible happiness and that is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to make each day a better day than the one before. Sometimes I make mistakes but I try to use them as learining opportunities to grow and develop and become better each day. I look to Christ and my parents and teachers as exampls and I try to emulate them in my life. I try to read scriptures and pray each day. I learn what I can, and I do what I can to make my life better, and try to uplift others around me.
