Hi I'm McKinley Kempton

I am a Daughter, I am a singer, I love people, I am a Cosmetologist, I am a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I Love it!

About Me

My entire life, I have always LOVED people! I decided from a young age that all I ever wanted to do was make people happy and feel good about themselves. So through school, I talked to as many people as I possibly could! I loved school. I love to learn and I love being with people everyday! After I graduated I knew that cosmetology would be a good fit for me because I would get to talk to people all day long and by the end of the service they would leave with a smile on their face and confidence in their eyes! I love hair and I love to smile! I love to read especially on the beach! I love my crazy family and the fact that there is never a dull moment with them! The temple is my favorite place in the entire world because it is so beautiful and you can feel the spirit whether you are inside or out! Music is my passion and my life! I listen to everything and anything! I always have a song playing in my head.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church and I have always loved it. The people are wonderful, the standards and values are high and strong, and the feeling you get after serving one another is incredible! My parents have never forced me to go to church or seminary. It was always my choice to do it. It always felt right and I knew it was where I'm suppose to be! I have an amazing opportunity to serve as a missionary in the great state of Kentucky and I am so excited to be able to share my testimony with others! I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church. I know that if we keep the commandments and if we do the very best we can in this life that we will be able to return to our Father in Heaven. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know that through Him we can be forgiven of our sins. I am so grateful for the temple and the blessings it brings to my life! I know that through the temple our families can be together through time and all eternity. I know the Book of Mormon is a true book. and I know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers. I love my family, I love my Savior, and I love this gospel!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the very best that I can. I strive to let the light of Christ shine through me. I love to share the gospel and the happiness that comes from it. I love to serve others in any way possible. I dress and speak modestly, I stay away from drugs, alcohol and tobacco. I read my scriptures and attend church on Sundays. Yes these are things that the church encourages, however, that is not why I do them. I follow these guidelines because i know it will keep me Happy, Healthy, and Strong.
