Hi I'm Mikaela

I was born in Oregon and raised in Nevada. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports- especially soccer, wake boarding, and snowboarding. I was Student Body President in High School. Being outdoors is my peaceful place. I love hiking. I am always up for an adventure. My brothers are taught me how to be strong.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon helps me understand that I have great potential. Jesus Christ made it possible for me to be forgiven when I mess up. He is also there for me when I am having a trial in my life. During student body election week in high school, I was constantly being bombarded with cruel comments and rumors. Near the end of the week, my energy was drained and I felt alone. I knelt down on my knees and began praying looking for comfort. I felt impressed to open my scriptures. I dropped my scriptures on my lap and they fell open to Alma 34. Verse 41 stuck out to me because it reads, "Have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions." My testimony had been solidified that day because I realized Jesus Christ is always listening to me. Although I did not receive a great vision or an angel, Jesus Christ answered my prayers. As a member of this church, I am more fully able to recognize His hand in my life.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve in the Mexico, Mexico City South Mission.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon, I have experienced great joy and comfort in my life. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are constantly supporting one another. The family is also unified because we have similar goals and values. Mormons outwardly express their commitment to their religious beliefs through service, missionary work, and happiness.
