Hi I'm Makenna

I was born and raised in California. I am a Student at Brigham Young University. I love acting and all things Disney. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Shoot. There really isn't too much to me. In all honesty I guess my hobbies include watching Netflix and taking naps. There really isn't much that tops a good nap except maybe some good food. I do love to travel so that makes me sound a little less lame. I have been to Canada, Paris, Rome, London, and Mexico. I would love to see more of the world. I am a student at Brigham Young University studying, as of now, Communications. That's me.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have always been a member but that doesn't mean I always had a testimony of why it is true. It came to an understanding one summer about how much the Savior and Heavenly Father love me. I really like that about the Book of Mormon because it emphasizes how much love they have for us. The Savior suffered for our sins because he loves us and wants us to be able to live again with him and our Father in Heaven. I love that the Holy Ghost is given to us to comfort us in times of trail and that He uses us in order to comfort those that need it. I love, and do know, that families can be together forever and that our time here on Earth is not the only time we get but that it is the time to learn and progress. The teachings in the Book of Mormon are all things that are there to help us be happier and I think that's what I love most about the church. That everything we do and everything we go through is for a reason and that reason is that we can one day be happy with our families in the presence of God.

How I live my faith

I am an activities committee co-chair so I get to help plan activities and such. Its pretty fun especially cause I go to church with college aged people so we do fun stuff like Nerf gun wars and beach trips. I go to church every Sunday and its great to get to see my friends at least once a week and to get to make more friends. That's what I love about the church people are so friendly and inviting.
