Hi I'm MacKenzie Campbell

I was in Foster Care most of my life. I have moved over 12 times. I love being Mormon with all my cells in my body.

About Me

I'm a 16 year old Junior in High School. I love to socialize and make new friends. My hobbies are reading ,writing, speaking, playing sports, and anything that allows me to make new friends. I love to travel and wish to become a Historian when I grow up, and to focus my studies on the US/Texas History

Why I am a Mormon

My biological parents were not good people and because of that I had to leave them and go into the Foster Care system. For a long time I didn't understand why I felt so alone and empty inside. I tried to fill my emptiness with earthly treasure, but nothing worked. Finally when I went to the church, I felt better. The atmosphere was unlike any other church I had gone too. I felt loved and accepted even on the first day. They didn't care what had happened in my past, just that I was happy now and soon they became my family. Ever since that day I have learned that God does answer our prayers and that he knows what is best for us as long as we listen. I know that Jesus Christ loved all more than any of us can fully comprehend right now and that if we listen and try to become more like Jesus Christ that we will be able to use our talents to help others and be able to learn how to love the way Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ can. I know that this church is true and that without it we wouldn't be here today to learn and to choose to change. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I am part of the Young Women group, which is the youth group that focuses on the girls who are between the ages of 12-17. I am the Advisor or 1st Counselor of the President of the older girls (16-17). So I am basically the right hand man ,or woman in this case, to the President who is also a young woman. I enjoy volunteering and helping the church as much as I can and love to bring people into the youth group nights for games and fun.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

MacKenzie Campbell
We believe that Men and Women are equal in Importance, but simply have different roles in life. Women are naturally nurturing, and men naturally provide. It does not have to be like this, but as long as one parent is nurturing and the other is providing. Both parents should be positively involved in their children's lives and be shown how a mother and father love each other and are able to work things out. The child or children should know without a doubt that both parents love each other and would do anything for them. Show more Show less
