Hi I'm Mackenzie Tucker

I am a Texan, a photographer, and an adventurer. I'm a missionary in the New York Rochester Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a Texan and proud of it. I'm obsessed with music and jamming in the car is always a good thing. Sports will always be a big part of my life and I love all things adventurous. Up in the mountains with my camera and my friends is my happy place. I spent six weeks studying abroad in Europe and since then all I want to do is travel the world. There is so much to experience in this world and I would love to do it all. I can't go a day without ice cream or laughing. I am currently serving as a missionary in Rochester, New York and The Hill Cumorah Visitor's Center. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings light and happiness into my life and I love being a missionary. After my mission I plan on finishing college at Brigham Young University!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel gives light to my life. I joined the church when I was 18 years old so I am a convert! Growing up, I always knew that God was there but I had so many questions about different aspects of religion. After reading part of the Book of Mormon, I decided to pray to know if it was true. After a few days I received an answer that I will never be able to deny. After that day, I decided to turn my life around and I haven't looked back since. The church started answering questions I've had all my life and while learning about the principles of the gospel, they all sounded familiar. Joining the church was easily the best decision of my life. I am constantly filled with happiness and joy. I love knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me, knows me, and has a plan for me. The gospel has given me a purpose in my life and has helped me know that I am a daughter of God and I have a Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply sharing it! After a year of being a member I decided to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I packed my bags and headed off to Western New York for a year and a half. Here I am able to share what makes me happy with people from all over the world. I love being able to share my testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I also live my faith by serving others. There is so much joy found in service. Serving the people of New York has really helped me feel of God's love for all of His children and His love for me.
