Hi I'm McKenna

I am an artist. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated with my degree in Fine Arts. There are plenty artistic mediums to love, but I am truly passionate about photography, writing, and music. While not in school I have tried to travel as much as possible. I love to experience the variety of cultures that the world has to offer at first hand. Especially London, which has been my obsession since I was a child. As one half of 2 children in my family, I love my brother and his wife dearly. Along with them, and my incredible parents, I like to take adventures and enjoy our time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I can feel and see the truthfulness of the principles taught through the gospel in small everyday situations. In the most humble and small circumstances I have experienced the truth of our Heavenly Father's gospel whispered in my ear and in my heart. The difference between life lived in harmony with the Lord's teachings and a life lived following Satan's temptations can be clear when I am paying close attention to the Spirit of The Holy Ghost guiding me. I love the peace and comfort knowing that the gospel guides my life in a way that is pleasing to God, and knowing that God's will never fails me-- even though it is sometimes hard to see the big picture.

How I live my faith

Right now I am preparing to serve a full time mission in California. I am excited to serve and strive to be more like Jesus Christ would like me to be. In the past I have served the women in the church who might be needing some extra help, as well as designed program layouts that list the agenda for church meetings and took photos at church activities.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

When I was younger my friends were always fascinated why my family kept so much food in the house. I am sure it looked a little alarming keeping so much flour in big buckets in the basement! At the time I was not sure how to answer their questions, but now I understand the Lord's principle of preparedness. If we can all truly try our best to help ourselves we will not only have peace of mind, but we will also be able to help others that are not as fortunate now as well as in times of disaster.
