Hi I'm Macy Park

Hi I'm Macy! I'm from Phoenix. I'm studying to be a nurse. I am currently a missionary at Temple Square and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in the big city of Phoenix for most of my life but we moved to small little town called Eagar when I turned 16 so I spent a lot of time up in the mountains and I absolutely loved it! I am the oldest daughter of four and my family means the world to me. They have been such a great example to me through the good times and the hard times. Right now I am serving a mission in the Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission. I love it here. It is a melting pot and we get to teach people from all over the world. I also served in the Baton Rouge Louisiana Mission for almost five months and it was a great experience to be able to serve down south. I love antiques, running, Mexican food, missionary work and I love this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but I have a firm belief that even members need to go through their own conversion experience before they can say that they know these things are true. After I graduated high school I went through a period of time where I fell away from the church a little bit. I still knew that these things were good and that I would find myself back living the gospel but I fell off the path. I went through a lot of changes in my life and wasn't going to church like I should have been doing. I remember one day I was sitting in my apartment in Mesa, AZ and something just told me, "Your not happy. Go back to where you belong." This feeling hit me so hard and I just knew that the way my life was going was just bringing me down. I eventually started over and started to attend church again. Once I came back I felt this huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I knew that I found direction in my life. That decision to come back led me here to Temple Square. I love this gospel so much. I know my purpose and I know I am a daughter of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and it answers questions of the soul. I invite all to read this book. It contains the plan of happiness and helps us to know who we really are. I love this truth and I absolutely love sharing it with others!

How I live my faith

There are a lot of things that I do to help me strengthen my faith. Right now I serve a mission at Temple Square. We get to serve others and teach this restored gospel several times a day. I try to invite others to learn more and share my testimony any chance I get because this church means so much to me. It has made me happy and I want others to have this as well. I feel like service is an amazing way to share your faith with others. When I served in Louisiana, I served a very humble community. We tried to serve others any chance we got. We laid tile, mowed lawns, and helped with anything we could. It was great to be able to help out people in times of need!
