Hi I'm Mikeala

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a young woman who has been called to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Growing up I have lived in both Utah, Idaho and Texas. I am the oldest child in my family and I have five younger siblings. I have graduated from high school as well as a college certificated program before receiving my mission call. In school I've done drama/theatre, orchestra and student council. I love drawing, sketching, painting, reading, and playing piano. I love to spend time with my family and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church all my life. Although I was born into it, it was a choice I had to make for myself if it was true. Growing up as a child I always felt that it was right, that it made sense. But when I was a youth I prayed about it, I prayed to know if this was the true church. And I received my answer. I know this is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith restored this gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true. I know that my Savior and Redeemer, even Jesus the Christ, knows and loves me. I know that only through Christ will the atonement rest upon me. I know that if we pray with a sincere heart we will receive an answer to our prayers. It happened with Joseph Smith, it happened with my parents, and it has happened with me. I know this without a shadow of doubt.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping myself and others draw closer to Christ. I have served in many calling in the church and one of them has been teaching the youth. I try and teach the youth through example, by me living my faith. It is not enough to simply say it is true, but to lead by action.
