Hi I'm Mikayla Morrison

I'm from Southern Arizona. I love the outdoors and fishing. I am serving a mission in Boston, Massachusetts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Arizona, and I love playing softball, the piano, and reading. I just finished my first year of college at BYU Idaho where I was studying plant science. I have learned to love the outdoors, fishing, and hunting from my dad and plan to someday own my own fruit orchard. I love spending time with family and friends. The happiest moments of my life have been with my family whom I love more than anything.

Why I am a Mormon

With all the evil and bad things that are going on in the world today the gospel of Jesus Christ is an anchor to me. It has helped me to stay away from things that I know are bad for me such as drinking, smoking, and other temptations that Satan has set in my path. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true, I know that God loves me and knows me individually. We are all children of God, and he loves each of us. He will always be there for me, and I know that I can trust in him because I am his daughter. By studying the scriptures I have come to know that through Jesus Christ and the atonement I can be forgiven of my sins and be washed clean again. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he did restore the gospel, and lastly I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. All of these things have helped me grow closer to God and feel his strengthening power, and I want to share it with others so that they can feel his love and know that they are loved and wanted.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by continually striving to follow the commandments of God and choose to live in righteousness by reading my scriptures, praying, and serving others. As I go about my day I strive to listen to what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. I have chosen to go on a mission and am so excited that I have been called to serve a mission in the Massachusetts Boston Mission. I can't wait to devote my life to God and share the gospel and the light and happiness that it brings to me with others.
