Hi I'm McKay

I belong in the outdoors. I love to run. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have had the opportunity to travel and have ton of amazing experiences. I love distance running and racing. I have graduated from high school and plan on going to college after I serve a two year mission. I'm the youngest of three kids and the baby of my family. I love exploring in the mountains, especially on camping trips. I am able to find myself up there. I love stringing up a hammock and listening to the sounds of nature around me. I love being creative and finding new ways to solve problems. Although I'm not sure what I want to do for a career, I know that hard work is important no matter what pathway I take.

Why I am a Mormon

I found my beliefs over my teenage years. Although I grew up in the church and was taught everything, it was only when I started seriously studying that I gained a testimony. I was able to see the effects of actively searching the scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father with a desire to know. I realized that I felt happier as I came to know the truth of the Gospel. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. He translated a book that can help me whenever I feel sad, confused, anxious, or scared. I know that there is a prophet on the Earth today and he is called of God. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve a mission and share my beliefs. I have a desire to go and share my happiness with others.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to grow up in the church. Throughout my life I've been able to have awesome examples in my ward. I also have great friends in my youth group that I love to spend time with. I have spent time doing service with my friends and we have become better friends because of it. I love being able to see familiar faces on Sunday at church and being in a ward where there is a feeling of family.
