Hi I'm McKayla

I love my family, cooking, and playing sports. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a currently a college student at Brigham Young University. I love playing sports, especially soccer and basketball, cooking, sewing, and creating anything of my own. But most of all I love spending time with my family!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because it brings me so much happiness! I honestly cannot imagine what my life would be like if I was not a Mormon and did not know who I am, where I came from, or where I am going. The gospel of Jesus Christ answers these questions and gives us a purpose here on earth. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me a better person. I am not perfect, none of us are, but through Jesus Christ we can change and become better. He is always there for us. He knows us perfectly. He knows our needs. He has suffered for each one of us and knows how we feel. We can always turn to Him because He has gone through everything we have. I know that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. He loves me and wants the best for me. He has sent me to this earth so that I can become more like Him and be able to return to him. I love Him. I am so grateful for the many blessings He has given me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith my striving to be an example to those around me, just like our Savior Jesus Christ. Each day I strive to become better and more like Him. He is the only being to come to this earth that is perfect. When we follow Him and His example we become closer to our Heavenly Father, and then in return when people follow our example they become closer to our Heavenly Father as well. Through the help of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we can become perfected and become more like Him. You never know who is watching you. Being an older sister I have found many young eyes watching me and the decisions I make. By making the right choices it can help those around you also make the right choices. My choices matter. By making the right choices I can be an example. This year I will become a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint. I have been called to the Peru Chiclayo Mission and I could not be more excited to share my faith with the people of Peru and help lead them closer to our Father in Heaven. I live my faith by sharing it with others.
