Hi I'm Makayla

I'm a memory writer. I'm an ice cream addict. I'm a nature explorer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love books, hiking in the mountains, playing tennis, Sundays, journalism, and discovering myself. When others are happy, I am happy. My favorite place to be is outside. I find happiness in helping others, expressing love, and listening to music that expands my soul. I'm excited for what's to come and where I am going in life. Even though I don't know how everything will work out in my life, or where I will be, I know that my Father in Heaven is with me every step of the way. Sometimes He carries me and sometimes He watches patiently from behind as I try, fail Him, and try again. And I know that He loves me regardless.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I've experienced God's love. And once you've experienced the fruit of the Atonement, you can never be the same again.

How I live my faith

My example is a reflection of my faith. Every word I say, action I make, and each step I do or do not take shows others what I believe and who I am. I strive to keep the covenants I've made with Heavenly Father and do so by partaking of the sacrament each Sunday, attending the temple often, and devoting my time, talents, and testimony to the church. I know that God loves all of us and I try to show His love by serving others as Christ would. I've learned that one of the greatest things you can do for someone is to listen to them. I try to set aside time for those I love and I've found that when I let them talk to me and unfold all of their burdens, worries, and fears, they feel lighter, comforted and happy. This in return makes me feel happy and drives me to do better to follow the example of my Savior.
