Hi I'm MaKaela

I'm from Utah. I'm the oldest of 6 kids. I'm a college graduate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to bake desserts! I enjoy hanging out with friends and making new ones. I have a degree in business. I love music and musical theatre!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me joy. I know that through Jesus Christ, all of us can be forgiven and live again. I have seen how much joy this gospel has brought to so many people around me, myself included! I know that I have a Father in Heaven and that he knows and loves each one of us. I have felt his love for me and I know it's real. I know that we can be guided in our lives through the influence of the Holy Ghost and our church leaders, including the Prophet Thomas S. Monson. I have known those guiding lights personally and desire to share this message of hope and joy!

How I live my faith

I've held many callings in varying capacities throughout my life, from Class Secretary to Family History Consultant to Librarian. I've helped plan and execute events and activities for the youth and adults. I have spent time getting to know the members of the wards I've been a part of in many ways.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

MaKaela
Most missionaries, like myself, worked hard to save money before serving a mission so they could provide their own funds. We desire to serve people world-wide and teach them about Heavenly Father, his love for us, and his gospel. The decision to serve a mission requires the sacrifice of time and money as we leave our personal lives behind for 18-24 months to share this message with others. I didn't always want to go on a mission, but I couldn't be happier to have received the opportunity! Show more Show less

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

MaKaela
No, we do not practice polygamy. There was a time in early church history when the Lord commanded Saints to practice plural marriage, but that practice was ceased in 1890 and we now only practice monogomous marriage. Any who still practice polygamy are going against our faith and the law. Show more Show less
