Hi I'm Myken

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah. I have two amazing parents and 9 older siblings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah with amazing parents and nine older siblings. Some of my favorite things to do are play soccer, bake, read, and be with my friends and family. I am currently living in Provo attending Utah Valley University. I love being in a college town where so many people share the same beliefs as I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon for many reasons. The first is that I was born into it, but not only that as I have grown up in the faith I have become personally converted. I have found out for myself that it is the true church. This church has brought me so much happiness through the doctrine it teaches and also the people that are there to support you. The way the church is organized is truly inspired. I have always had friends through the church and have always had support in whatever I do. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I have become closer to him as I have kept his commandments. I love this church and gospel and all the blessings it has given me in my life. I can't imagine my life without it, it is what brings me joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by fulfilling my callings. I am a visiting teacher, a gospel doctrine teacher in my student ward, and preparing to serve a full time mission in the Germany Berlin mission. Not only do I live my faith through my callings but just by living the standards that are in the For Strength of Youth pamphlet and serving others on a daily bases.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Myken
Mormon missionaries proselyte because we are followers of Christ and we want others to know the good news of his gospel. I know that I like to share what I know to be true because it is what brings me joy and I want to share it. I once heard a quote that said "I am just a beggar trying to show all the other beggars where the food is." That is how we feel about this gospel it is the truth and the light and it is what can lead us back to our father in heaven. With something so near and dear to our hearts we truly love the people we share it with. Show more Show less
