Hi I'm McKenzie Eckardt

I grew up in Utah, love being outside and enjoying the world that was created for us, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoyed being in the choir and musicals during high school, and music is the best way I can express how I feel! I also enjoy my time in the mountains, on a horse, or fishing in a boat, enjoying the beauty of the earth!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church! But through different experiences through out my life, the church began to make more sense. I have found through study and prayer that the Book of Mormon is true! My favorite scripture that helped me feel Christ's love the most is found in 1 Nephi 21:16 "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands;..." He really did suffer and die for us! And through Him we can return to our Heavenly Father! I have also found to be true that through Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ restored His church on the earth. I love this Gospel!!

How I live my faith

I served full-time in the New York, New York South Mission and fell in love with the people and the city! I also served with the young women back in Utah, helping out with the camps in the summer! My favorite part about serving these wonderful people has been the opportunity to share my feelings about this church.
