Hi I'm Maquela

I grew up in Richmond, Virginia. I sing and play sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been singing since I was a little girl. I play basketball and soccer, used to cheer. I'm currently about to serve a mission in Utah and following go to college at BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life. I was a member at age 8, when I was baptized. I chose to be apart of his gospel because I know it is true. I know that the bad things would get me into trouble. Bad things I mean the Word of Wisdom. I have many friends that ask me to drink or smoke with them and it's easy for me to say no to them. I know that it is a drug from Satan that I don't need in my life. Preaching the Gospel has always been one of the most important things to me, even if the person I'm teaching doesn't want to hear it. I know the scriptures are true, that Joseph Smith was a prophet and Thomas S. Monson is a prophet called of God, I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I'm blessed to be a Mormon and to learn more about thee. I'm grateful to have the Holy Ghost with me no matter what I do.

How I live my faith

I usually do service for others, whether it is babysitting or helping them in their garden. I was beehive 1st counselor and Mia-Maid 2nd counselor as a calling in the Young Womens. I was called to be a Primary Teacher before I go on my mission. I used to plan out activities for the combine young men and young women nights. I share the gospel with just about anyone who asks me about it and share quotes to help them out.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?
