Hi I'm MacKenzie Lipps

I love to run, be outdoors, and just have fun. I'm a college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything to do with the outdoors. Hiking, fishing, swimming, running, etc. You name it, I enjoy it. I also enjoy carpentry a lot, and have made many pieces of furniture for family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is just cool! Its that simple! I'm a Mormon for two reasons. The first is the logical nature that the doctrine of the church has. It resonates with me, and each time I hear its teachings, it all just makes sense. The second reason is because of the very personal witness that I received from God when I was twelve years old, confirming to me the truthfulness of the religion. Since that moment, I have had countless small yet powerful witness from my Heavenly Father that this is His true church on the earth. I just know that this is true, and I know that anyone who wants to know the same can go to God and ask Him in the sincerity of their heart the same thing, and he will show them that it is true. If He did it for me, and I'm no special than anybody else, He can do it for you too!

How I live my faith

My faith is everything to me. I honestly cannot imagine life without it. It is an anchor that ties me down and keeps me safe during the storms of life. We all will have hardships. None of us are immune. However, God has given us divine principles by which to live by which will keep us protected, and I have learned through personal experience how important these principals are. Through serving God, loving my fellow man, and repenting when I make a mistake, I can make it through any hard time, and come out of all the storms that life can throw at me better than I was before.
