Hi I'm McKenzie Vance

I'm a missionary. I am a college student. I love nature. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary. I went to school at BYU studying Family Life. I love being outside. Whether it is being out in the sun, hiking, camping, having a picnic, I just love it. I also enjoy yoga. I love art and how it all works together to make something beautiful.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but before you hit the next button or the back button, let me tell you why I choose to be a Mormon. For me, it is an every day choice. I have studied other religions and I have a great respect for them. There is truth found everywhere. I decided that I wasn't going to base my religion or my beliefs on my parents. I wanted to find out for myself. So I did. I read the Book of Mormon. I took up the challenge found in Moroni 10:3-5. I prayed to know truth. God knows all truth and why would He hide it? He answered. I felt a warm and peaceful feeling in my heart. I felt that it was true. As I studied more about the beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it made sense to me. As I continue to learn, it continues to make sense. That is why I am Mormon. I have seen so many blessings in my life as I continue to make this daily choice. To follow the standards. To follow Jesus Christ. To be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission at a Visitors' Center. It is a great role to bring others to come to know about Jesus Christ and have them experience the peace and happiness that comes from living the full gospel of Jesus Christ. It's a win-win situation. As I help bring others to come to Christ and follow His ways, I, in turn find peace and happiness. Such is the plan that God gave to us. So that we can be happy. Who doesn't want to be happy??
