Hi I'm McKayla Johnson.

I've been called to serve a mission. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being creative. I write, sing, dance, and play piano. My family often finds me curled up on the couch, reading Jane Austen or some fairytale. I love vacations, going on car rides, and the beach. I haven't started college yet, but I will once I get back from serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I LOVE this church! I am so thankful for the knowledge I have of the Savior Jesus Christ and His atonement. I know He is there for me, even when I feel alone. I know I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows what I need. I know Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the church onto the earth today. I have read The Book of Mormon, and I know it was written by prophets and inspired by Heavenly Father. I am also so grateful to know families are forever. I've watched friends and family lose loved ones, and I cannot imagine how terrible it must be to believe you'll never see them again. Ithe gives me such great comfort to know I can see my family after we die.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in Scottsdale, Arizona. It's one of the hardest things I have done in my whole life, but it is so worth it. I get to see the hand of the Lord, every day, as He guides me and helps me learn the language, and helps me know how to teach people individually.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

McKayla Johnson.
Speaking from personal experience, missionaries proselyte because we want to share the knowledge we have. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me so much happiness and I want others to feel the same way. The world can be crazy, unpredictable, and frightening--but the gospel provides peace and comfort during difficult times. I've received greater strength and peace through Jesus Christ's Atonement, and the way he knows me personally. I want everyone to be able to feel of that love. Show more Show less
