Hi I'm Makenna Stringam

I'm from a small town and attend BYU-Idaho. I am going to serve a mission in the Ecuador Guayaquil South mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a small town but love adventure. One of my biggest dreams is to go and travel the world and learn about other people and their cultures. I love to sing, cook and hike. I am currently attending college and am studying international affairs. I am also studying Chinese and Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a girl, I was watching a video on the Atonement with my family, it was at a part where Jesus Christ was visiting the Nephites and giving them counsel. There was a blind man there who was at the back of the crowd and was begging his son to tell him what Jesus looked like when all of the sudden Jesus was there in front of him. This touched me so much, Jesus and heavenly Father care so much about each of us. He forgets no one, even the seemingly insignificant person in the back of the crowd. He cares about me individually and wants what's best for me. Even when I feel inadequate. With His help I know I can go live with him again with my eternal family.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite things to do is community service. I think it is fun to get out and serve the community but also at the same time you get to meet new people who also love to serve. I also love attending church and church activities that we plan.
