Hi I'm McKenna Williams

I'm a missionary, I'm from California, I love to travel, I love to be with my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Where do I begin. I am a redhead. I love to laugh, especially at myself. Ask my family. I love to explore, travel to far places and be immersed in a new culture I know nothing about. I think I got that from my dad. I have loved traveling with him and learning from him. I love my family! I love games, especially card games! I went to Brigham Young University before serving a mission for 18 months. I loved it there! Being from California, I love the beach and anything outdoors. I love learning new thing and trying new foods. I also love kids! I have been a nanny for the past couple summers and can't wait to be a mom one day! Right now I am loving my time currently in Orlando Florida. I have the opportunity to teach others about what makes me happiest. It has been the best adventure of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read the book of Mormon and I have prayed to know if it is true. I received a powerful feeling in my heart that the Book of Mormon is true and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's true church. That knowledge to me is priceless. Being a member of this Church has made me so very happy. It brings so much joy to my life! I could go on and on at the reasons why I love it! When I am down or a going through a trial, I can turn to my Heavenly Father. I know He is there. I know He hears my prayers. I know that Christ is my Savior and that He atoned for not only my sins but for my pains and sorrows and heartache. I have had great examples in my life of truth and righteousness, virtue and love. I am grateful for those people who have taught me correct principles so that I may one day teach my own children. My parents especially have been such a strength to me. I have learned so much from their examples. I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored on the earth. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and that he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove that special day. I know that if you want to know if this church is true and feel the happiness and peace I feel every day because I know I can be with my family forever, all you have to do is ask.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example to those around me. I know that I have a lot of young women who look up to me and are watching me- one being my little sister, whom I absolutely adore. I know that by living the standards of the gospel she will be motivated to live the same way. I also serve in my church callings the very best that I can. I am definitely not perfect, but that's why we are here right? At the moment I am serving a mission for the church and I have the unique opportunity to invite those in the Orlando Florida area to come unto Christ. This experience has completely changed my life! I have drawn so much closer to my savior as I have tried my very best to represent him. I love being able to teach others how they can truly be happy and live with their loved ones forever. Another way I live my faith is by reading my scriptures and saying my prayers daily. This is such an important thing for me to always increase my faith! I have seen a huge difference in the days where this doesn't happen. Starting off my day with the Book of Mormon and conversation with my Father in Heaven is incredible! It shapes the rest of the day. I challenge you to try it!
