Hi I'm Macee

I am a child of God, a friend to everyone, a lover of EVERYTHING in life, and a full-time missionary. I am a Mormon (:

About Me

I was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho. I come from the most amazing family: I have, four brothers, two sisters, and now two sister and brothers-in-law, as well as five nieces, and one nephew! I have been so privileged to have grown up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! The gospel is my life. I love being with family and friends, singing loud and carelessly, playing the piano, going on adventures, doing any kind of sports, serving others, learning about everything, and just about everything else; life has so many fun things to do! I am currently serving a full-time mission in Richmond, Virginia! I try my best to always be happy and make the best out of every situation, because this life is too short to be anything but happy. Life is the most wonderful gift and I strive every day to be as grateful as I can for it! I'm kind of a nut, but it's okay, because nuts are good for you!

Why I am a Mormon

I am incredibly blessed to have been born and raised in an LDS family. Because of this, I have grown up around teachings of the gospel, and the strong testimonies of my parents and loved ones. With such a supportive background of the church, I have always had a testimony. However, my testimony is strengthened every day through the choices I make. I choose to live the commandments. I choose to go to church. I choose to love and serve all those I come in contact with. I do all of these things, not because I have to, but because it makes me so happy, and I want to share the happiness I feel with everyone! Sometimes I don't always understand certain things, but I've learned to, "Believe in order to understand, rather than understand in order to believe." That is what this gospel is all about using the atonement of our Savior to become more like Him. To reach out and help our brothers and sisters in need by serving and loving one another! I know that this gospel influences a contagious happiness, and I love it SO much! These are just a few reasons why I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have lived my faith as a Latter-Day Saint by following the example of Jesus Christ to the best of my ability. I showed my faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ at age 8 by being baptized, and I continually strive to live the gospel principles in which we have been given. At times it seems intimidating, and even a lot to live up to, but is the most beautiful feeling in the world to know that we can each become like Him through His atonement. I am also grateful to be blessed with a talents I can share with others. I live my faith through my actions, words, talents, and abilities. I strive my best to be Christ-Like, to serve others, and always be positive. This gospel brings TRUE happiness and peace. I am currently showing my faith by serving a full-time mission in the Virginia, Richmond Mission, and there is no greater feeling than helping others come unto Christ.
