Hi I'm McKayla Christensen

I'm from Idaho Falls. I love my family, the outdoors, and serving as a full-time missionary in Phoenix Arizona! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love everything outdoors from camping to rappelling and from shooting to swimming! I served for 3 years on the staff of Cedar Badge which was an incredible experience! I used to work at Downeast Outfitters and for my neighbor selling Lula Roe clothing! I went to school at BYU-Idaho in Rexburg and absolutely loved it there! I was studying Child Development and hope to one day work with kids! I took a break though to come and serve the Lord here in Phoenix Arizona for 18 months as a full time missionary and am beyond grateful for this experience! I have wonderful parents and siblings back home whom I love so much and appreciate all of their support while out here in Arizona!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I testify that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and had his prayer and his questions answered on a spring morning in 1820 in the Sacred Grove. I testify that Jesus Christ restored the same church he established through Joseph Smith. I know that we have a living prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson who is the mouthpiece from God to us in these modern times. He is called of God. I have a strong testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and Jesus' sacrifice. I know that His sacrifice was personal for each one of us so He could know how to "succour us," or take care of us and help us perfectly in our trials. I know that through Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven of our sins and we can live with our Heavenly Father and with Jesus Christ again. I know that the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ is just that, another testament of Jesus Christ and that this book is true. I have prayed to know of it's truthfulness and know, without a doubt that it and the Bible are both the word of God and are true. I know that these things are true and I cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving, sharing my testimony of this amazing gospel, and striving every day to be more Christlike than the day before. I love the amazing opportunity I have to be a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and that I get to share this gospel and my testimony with everyone I meet! By serving others, sharing my testimony, and helping others come closer to Jesus Christ each day, I come closer to Jesus Christ each day!
