Hi I'm Karissa MacGregor

My name is Karissa. I will soon become a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Yep I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am Sister MacGregor, serving in the Utah Orem Mission. So I've been out for 13 months..... yep thats about it.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into the LDS church, I didn't become what I believe to be a true member until 4 years ago. I have had many difficulties in my life that made me reject any church. I guess that didn't really matter to Heavenly Father, He loved me anyway, and eventually I came back to remembering how much I loved Him too, and how much He has given me time and time again, no matter how many times I was foolish enough to turn my back on what He had to offer and had already given me. I took it for granted, and it may hurt, it may feel like your breaking, but really I think he was actually just giving me pieces of myself back, then handing me the glue and showing me where the pieces belonged. He didn't just put me back together, He showed me how to fix myself and showed me the strength that I had. He gave all the help that I needed, was the one who gave me that strength, but still let me try doing it myself. There is no greater love than the one that Heavenly Father has for us, that was shown through the example set by his Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am the Ward Missionary at my church and also fill in for Primary teachers in Sunday school class. I love teaching the little ones the best. We try and help out the missionaries as much as possible, and befriend and help the investigators and new members.
