Hi I'm Makensey Skouson

I am a long distance runner, sister, daughter, and friend, and I'm a Mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it.

About Me

I enjoy reading, and photography. I love hanging out with my friends and family. I am college student and I am thinking of going into physical therapy. And I am currently serving a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission

Why I am a Mormon

Sure I was raised in the church, and that may be an answer, but I choose to stay a Mormon, because I know that the Gospel is the one and true Gospel of Jesus Christ here on the earth. The church has made me who I am, and I do not know where I would be today without it, It has helped me many times in my life when I was feeling lost and confused. I and extremely grateful for the Gospel in my life. As Joseph Smith once said, "without me the church will go on, but without the church I am nothing." I Find that that statement defines the reason why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best to stay happy and make others happy as well. Life is to short to be miserable, look for the good in all, because it is there. I try yo serve others because it makes who you are serving happy, and in turn it makes you happy, and we are supposed to love our neighbor as ourselves.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Makensey Skouson
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the fact that Christ suffered for all men. He suffered for everyone's sins, and then died for everyone. He did this so that if we use the Atonement in our lives and repent we can be forgiven of our sins and overcome spiritual death, and he died for us to break the bands of death so that all of us may be resurrected one day.God loves us and we are his children, he want us to make it back to him and because of the a Atonement of Jesus Christ we can come to live with our Father in Heaven both spiritually and physically.
