Hi I'm Mckaela

I'm from sunny Arizona. Soon I'll be in Arequipa, Perú serving a full-time mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I've lived in hot, sunny Arizona basically my whole life. I go to school at BYU-Idaho. However, right now, I'm preparing to serve a full time mission in Arequipa, Perú! I report to Lima on April 9th. I enjoy taking pictures and spending lots of time with my friends. I love watching movies, even if I've already seen it 362 times. I'm not super musically talented, but I also love playing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith, which can have a few downsides. However, I feel like it makes the gospel principles a little easier to live because I've been living them my whole life. Also, it's incredible to have my family there to support me. I was taught the gospel by loving teachers and my mother, and when I was 8yrs old, I made the best decision of my life and got baptized. Ever since then, I've been a member of this wonderful church. Like everyone, I've had opportunities and temptations to leave the church. But, I know with total surety in my heart, that this is the true church, and it's where I belong.

How I live my faith

As previously mentioned, I'm about to embark on a huge new adventure. A full-time mission! This is a wonderful opportunity through which I can live my faith. I also can be an example to my member and nonmember friends. I strive to always choose the right and live a Christ-like life. By studying and pondering the scriptures, we can see how He lived His life and we can better emulate it.
