Hi I'm McKenna

I love the outdoors, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been called to serve as a missionary serving in Manchester, England! But for now, I'm a student studying at Brigham Young University. I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and dancing in the rain. Laughing is my favorite activity and my favorite color changes every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church, and I'm grateful for the impact it had on my growth and development. Through the Church, I learned how to truly be happy. Life can be kind of hard sometimes, but from my parents and church leaders I learned that I can find true joy in serving others. As I thought less about myself and more about how I could help those around me I found that I was SO much happier! The gospel also brings the greatest peace to my soul. By knowing that my loving Heavenly Father has a plan for me, I know I can trust that as long as I keep the commandments and always strive to live more like Jesus Christ, everything will always work out. With Christ, nothing will ever go permanently wrong.

How I live my faith

In high school I served on seminary council and it changed my life. I would highly recommend taking seminary to anyone, even if it's super early in the morning. It's worth it! Now I'm serving as the ward activities director, and it is so much fun. Spending time with the members of my ward is such a blast. They can manage to turn even the worst days into the best! Surrounding yourself with loving followers of Jesus Christ is the best way to feel closer to our Savior.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The prophet of the LDS church today is President Thomas S Monson. He is assisted by two counselors as well as Twelve apostles. We believe that all of these men are called of God. In Amos 3:7 it says "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets unto his servants the prophets." This means that the Lord reveals what he wants us to learn to his prophets through revelation. As we hear from these great men, we can be assured that they teach us only what the Lord has revealed unto them for our well-being and that it comes directly from our loving Heavenly Father.
