Hi I'm Mikaela Bello!

I'm the oldest in a family of 10, I love to act, dance, and travel and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I LOVE my family, honestly Family is the most important thing in the world to me! Other than that though, my favorite things include rainstorms, music, dancing, traveling, and cheesecake. My favorite subject is Art History, but I'm not artistically talented-at all. I love to travel, act, design, sing, dance and teach! I've been in Musical/Theatrical productions since I was 11 and I adore being on stage. I love pushing myself and trying new things, I feel that Life is a gift and we shouldn't waste a second of it because we are afraid to fail. That is easier said than done for sure! There was a time in my life where I was so afraid of failing that I didn't do anything that I wanted to do. I just watched other braver people pass me up. It wasn't until this thought hit me like a brick: "Fear is not real, it is only worrying about things that haven't-and may never-happen" thanks for that Will Smith;) but honestly when we think about it, when you have faith in Christ you know he loves you and you know there is no reason to fear. Life is a gift from God and he wants us to be happy and live it to it's fullest within the safety lines he's provided and I am so grateful for this gift! I absolutely can't wait to serve my mission and teach the happy truth of the restored gospel to the amazing people of Taiwan!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored in full to the earth this complete gospel is only found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Through this Gospel I have found peace and answers. 10 things I Know through the gospel: 1. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ Love ALL OF US and want us all to be happy! 2. There is a life after death! 3. We can be together with our families again through the atonement and sacrifice of Christ! 4. Christ suffered for our sins and because of this we can be forgiven when we repent! 5. The family is at the center of Heavenly Father's plan of happiness! 6. Trials are inevitable, but they are for our growth and learning! 7. the Laws of the Gospel are there to keep us safe and Happy- not to limit us! 8. Agency and Self-Government (the right to choose) are gifts from God and we should use them for good! 9. Through faith in Christ we can accomplish anything! 10. Christ will come again!

How I live my faith

I love our Church because it gives us leadership opportunities or callings. Sometimes accepting the calling seems daunting but when we trust in the Lord he will not forsake us! These callings help us learn to trust in the Lord and listen to the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I was the president of my young women's class which meant that I was responsible to fellowship and serve the girls in my area as well as help plan and execute activities for our youth. This opportunity to serve my peers helped me to gain incredible friendships and learn so much about the amazing valiant girls around me I also learned that it is possible to do the most daunting tasks through the Lord who strengthens us! These girls have affected my life for the better and made me want to be a better person.
