Hi I'm Makenzie Smith

Texan. Chemical Engineering at BYU. Arizona Mesa Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Texas. I go to college at BYU where I am studying chemical engineering. I grew up playing and watching sports, and that is still what I do a lot in my free time. When I am not studying or watching sports, I enjoy hanging out with friends and even writing some poetry. I am currently serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon by my parents, but the choice to remain was my own. I have found true happiness by living the commandments and principles of the church. There is nothing to compare to it. I love that I can constantly improve myself and draw on strength from Jesus Christ and His Atonement. I have found peace and comfort in hard times throughout my life. It hasn't always been easy, but it has always been worth it.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving a mission, as mentioned before, in Arizona where I teach others and try to help others come unto Christ and find happiness while also drawing closer to Jesus Christ and finding greater happiness myself. This is done by loving people as Jesus Christ loves each of us and teaching them about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
