Hi I'm Makayla

I'm a dental assistant, a skier, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a certification in Dental Assisting and I was able to work in a dental office right out of high school. I have been a student at BYU-Idaho, majoring in human biology, working on my generals and pre-requisites to get into dental hygiene school. I have been called to be a missionary serving in the Gilbert, Arizona Mission. I could not be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I KNOW that this church is true. I have found out for myself that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of him I know that I will not only live again, but that I will be reunited with my family after death. I know that families are forever. I know that through the Atonement our brother, Jesus Christ, I can repent of my sins and be forgiven for the mistakes that I have and will make in my life. I'm so incredibly grateful to know that no matter what there is always someone who knows exactly how I feel. Christ has gone through it all and he did so willingly and out of love for us. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and gives me guidance as I read it. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet and I am so thankful for him and all he has done to restore this church on the Earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by bringing Christ into every aspect of my life. I try to be a disciple of Christ and do things as he would. The primary song, "I'm trying to be Like Jesus", comes to mind because although I may not be perfect, I am trying to be like him.
