Hi I'm McKann Hanseen

I'm a full time adventure-seeker. I believe music is the essence of life. Star gazing and bonfires make the world go round.

About Me

I love learning about people of all shapes and sizes. I like to know what makes people tick and learning about how I can connect with them. I love to serve others and to help them in any way I can. People are the best! Music has always been a part of my life. Whether it's been dancing on the kitchen table to Earth, Wind, & Fire with my siblings or beating a drum on the football field in 100 degree heat in the middle of the summer, I have always found much joy from music. I have felt the Spirit countless times while listening to and performing uplifting music. As a child, I didn't play with Barbies or baby dolls. I played with dirt, trees, and my imagination. As long as I can remember, my family has spent a great chunk of the summers up in the Rocky Mountains fishing, hiking, hunting, and exploring. God has created a beautiful earth for us to enjoy and I definitely love taking advantage of that. I'm a missionary in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission and I can't believe how lucky I am to be one called and set apart to proclaim the gospel with power and authority! This Gospel is the way to true happiness. It has become a part of me. All who know me know, without question, that I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. He is my brother, best friend, and Savior. This Gospel of Jesus Christ allows all who accept it to receive more happiness than they can imagine. I have experienced this. No matter where I've been in my life, Christ has been there to love and support me, and I have had blessings poured out to me that I haven't even recognized sometimes! I am so happy when I live the way that Christ has asked me to, and I love being happy!

How I live my faith

I'm currently in the ranks of thousands preaching the good news of the Gospel to God's children--my fellow brothers and sisters! I'm a missionary in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh Mission and I could not imagine myself doing anything else right now. This Gospel has made me immensely happy, and sharing that opportunity with others has made my life even better. Being a missionary is a pretty straightforward representation of living my faith. But I try my best to treat everyone as the child of God that they are. I strive to be an example of truth and steadfastness in Christ. And most importantly, I love the people I have been blessed to meet. Once I'm no longer a full-time missionary, I won't give up all the things I've learned from doing it. Part of progression is that we take the things we've learned and continue to do all we can to become better! We are imperfect beings and the Lord knows that. But He trusts us now because he knows what we can be 10,000 years from now!
