Hi I'm McKay Reese

I am from San Clemente, CA. I enjoy running, playing soccer, and anything to do with the beach. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is McKay Reese. I grew up in a little beachside community by the name of San Clemente. I went to San Clemente High School where I played soccer and ran cross country and track. I am currently attending Brigham Young University, Provo, where I am studying neuroscience. I have been called to serve in the Papeete, Tahiti mission, reporting March 2015. I was born in to the church and raised by a loving Mom and Dad. I have four siblings, and I am the second youngest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was born into the Mormon faith, but because I have come to know of the truth of this gospel by seeking out its truthfulness for myself. I know my Savior lives and loves me personally. I know by him and through his atonement we can one day return to live with our loving Heavenly Father. This gospel has blessed me in ways I cannot describe, and I know I would not be as happy as I currently am without it. The gospel is not a large part of my life, it is my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a director for ward prayer here at BYU, where I am in charge of getting the group of people I attend church with together each Sunday night for a group prayer and activity.
