Hi I'm McKenna

I Love My Family! I am a Christian! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a total girl, I love to shop, go out with my friends, play with all my nieces and nephews, and have FUN! I love to get on pinterest and occasionally I might attempt actually making something I have pinned. I love to sing and dance it brings so much joy into my life! I love to go four-wheeling, snowmobiling, river rafting, boating, and anything else that involves my family and friends! I love my family they have truly made me who I am today by helping me grow to understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That each of us are Children of a Loving Heavenly Father. He sent his son Jesus Christ to give us a chance to return to him if we follow and do all that we can to obey him. I love to know that we can return to live with them again someday and that we can be with our family forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always grown up in the church and some people think that is the only reason I am a Mormon. Well it is not. I am a Mormon because I believe what I have been taught my entire life. Each of us has to learn for ourselves what we believe to be true and for me it took a lot of time. Mainly because I didn't understand how truly important this was. I have always clung to the knowledge that Families are Forever but I didn't understand all that really meant. While attending college and feeling a little lost in all the world around me. I turned to Heavenly Father in prayer many many times a day. From that I was able to feel his love so much and to see how he really cared for me by answering my prayers. Not always how I thought they should be answered but how he knows they need to be answered. Overtime I was able to know that I am a member of this church because I believe it to be true! I read the Book of Mormon and I know for myself it is true! I know that the plan of salvation is the true plan of happiness that enables us to be able to return to our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and be with our families forever. I love this church, it has made me who I am, and I owe so much to the happiness and peace that it has brought me! I am currently sharing this Joy while serving as a full time missionary in the Mississippi Jackson Mission. I love every minute of being here! Though I never planned on serving it truly has been the BEST decision I have ever made. It has helped me to learn and grow so much more than I ever thought possible!

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by using the Atonement of Jesus Christ! None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes and sin each day; because of our Heavenly Father's wonderful plan he knew we would need our Savior Jesus Christ so we can each have the opportunity to repent and try harder each day. I live my faith by sharing what I love and know to be true each day with the wonderful people all around me! Helping them to find the same happiness and joy that I have.

What do Mormons believe about family?

The family is the Center of the Mormon belief. My family is so important to me because of the things I have been taught and have learned over time! After losing a brother as a child I really had to learn for myself what to think and believe. Now years later I am so grateful for the knowledge of how important the family is and that we can be with our families forever! This has been the biggest blessing to me in my life and I can't put into words how grateful I am for everything it has taught me! Families are the biggest blessing from our Heavenly Father they allow us to learn and grow and become who we supposed to be! Show more Show less
