Hi I'm Makenna

I have a long bucket list & im just trying to finnish it + I love being a MORMON

About Me

I've lived in California my whole life, its kind of the best & its home. As of right now I am serving as a full time missionary in the Texas Houston Mission. I just finished my freshman year at Brigham Young University-Idaho, studying exercise physiology with the ambition of becoming an athletic trainer. Some things that I love are: mangos (yummmmy), hand lettering, my niece, reading, playing sports/exercise, finding a good song, being a Mormon, elephants, watching documentaries, traveling anywhere, & life, because its sooo good!

Why I am a Mormon

I am very grateful for the blessing to be born and raised in the church and into a smaller but loving family that has taught me so many things by living the gospel. I have seen an incredible amount of tender mercies of the Lord that though they may seem almost coincidental at times, but when I add them up it is undeniably true that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me and every single one of his children. Knowing that he hears and answers my prayers gives me the confidence to trust him and know that he is going to help me because he has a plan. Not only does he have a plan, but its a perfect plan that I, and everyone else is a part of, with Jesus Christ at the center of it. Being able to read the Book of Mormon and test its message by living Christs gospel and recieving the blesings and joy that come from it, as well as praying to ask God if it is true, I have recieved a witness by the Holy Ghost that it is absolute truth, that I cannot deny.

How I live my faith

In high school I was on a youth council that organized and planned the activities for the young men and young women in our area. Since then I have been a teacher in the womans organization in the church, and well now I am a missionary and I get the opportunity to teach people about Jesus Christ! I have loved all of these callings, in being able to help and serve others. Jesus Christ life was filled with selfless service & its a privilage to have the opportunity to follow him by doing the same.
