Hi I'm Makaila

I'm a Texan, born and raised. I'm a missionary on Temple Square. I know ASL, and I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the fourth child of seven. I attended BYU-Idaho, and loved it! I love to run, dance, cook, eat, sing, play ukulele, sew, make weird faces, and laugh. I'm a missionary on Temple Square, sharing the Gospel in American Sign Language! How great is my calling!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it just makes sense. My parents taught me since birth about the Mormon religion. They taught me to learn for myself and to rely on our Savior, Jesus Christ. I've had my entire life to learn the doctrines of this gospel, and I am constantly being converted to this religion. As I listen to my church leaders, say my daily prayers, and study the scriptures, I can't help but feel the truth of my church. I know that the leaders of this church have been called by God. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book of scripture. I love being a Mormon and owe everything I am to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I strive to follow Jesus Christ in everything I do. I study the Bible and the Book of Mormon as often as I can. I'm far from perfect, but I know that as I apply Christ's teachings, I can find peace and joy in this life. I'm grateful for the opportunity I have to share what I know with others! I am currently serving a full-time mission! I am serving in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission and I am teaching in American Sign Language!
