Hi I'm Maggie Whatcott

I love music! I love my family! I love the great outdoors! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a Mormon! :) I am currently a missionary for the Church in the Great Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I love being a missionary. I love meeting new people. I love doing hard things! I come from a musical family. We love to sing and play instruments! It brings us lots of joy and laughter. Our house is hardly ever quiet and i LOVE IT! I have played the piano ever since I was 5 years old. Music is definitely a part of me. I decided to study piano in college before i came on my mission. I believe that music is a universal language that has the ability to touch hearts for the better and I love sharing my music with others. I also enjoy anything outdoors! I love to hike, bike, swim and play volleyball. I love Disney movies, mashed potatoes, pancakes, and my mom's cooking. I love sleeping under the stars, sitting around campfires, and getting dirt under my fingernails. I love being around friends and family, and i love helping others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! There is always something to smile about when you are striving to live the gospel. I have found greater peace and comfort with the knowledge and testimony i have of Jesus Christ. I am learning every day. I feel like being a Mormon gives me a better perspective on life-the good and the not so good. I am a Mormon because I have come to know, for myself, that this church is true. It brings a warm feeling into my heart whenever I think about it. I am a Mormon because I KNOW that my family can live together forever and that means the world to me. I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lived and died for me. I know that this is His church. I know that He loves you too! There is a plan and reason for me being here. I want to make the best of whatever is given to me. I want to help others. Being a Mormon helps me fulfill these goals. I LOVE this gospel and I LOVE being a Mormon!! :)

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary for the church. I am devoting all my time, talents, and interests to serving the Lord. I play the piano for our small congregation here in Tennessee. I read from the scriptures daily. I share my beliefs with others on the bus. I try to bring the Book of Mormon to life as I share it with others. I pray and go to church. I try be like the Savior and help others to come closer to Him.
