Hi I'm Michaela Beney

I'm a mormon

About Me

currently in college studying animal management. I love to read, draw and listen to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Roman catholic family, i was always told to find a religion that felt right to me and seeing as my family's religion never felt right to me i spent most of my life trying to find one that did. i have studied many different religions and even joined a few but they never felt right to me. when i turned 15 i had given up on religion but my uncle was determined to help me find the true religion so he told me about the Mormon faith. i had never heard about the Mormons so i was very determined to learn more. I spent months trying to convince my uncle to let me meet with the missionaries and eventually he introduced me. i asked the missionaries loads of questions that no other religion was able to answer but the missionaries were able to answer. At first i wasn't sure if i believed what their were teaching me so i took their advice and prayed to God. not long after i had finished praying i felt an amazing feeling, it was a feeling of pure joy i had never felt any joy like it before and for me this feeling confirmed to me that the church was true. after i had attended the church and a youth activity i felt the same level of joy and so i asked to be baptized. I have been a member for other a year now and looking back i am more then glad that i'm apart of the true church and that i am able to know the truth. To this day i always feel the same joy i did back when i prayed to know the truth every single time i read the book of Mormon or attend any church meeting. I have been so much more happier since i joined.

How I live my faith

I love being able to attend church each Sunday to participate in sacrament, Sunday school and young women's. I read my scriptures whenever possible even on my journey to college. i strive to keep each and every one of gods commandments.
