Hi I'm McKinze

Im a Tree Triming, Fun Loving, Farm Boy and Im a Mormon

About Me

 Well there is not a lot to me. I'm just your average basic kinda guy, Who just loves to have fun and to be around people. I'm one of the youngest of six boy in I wasn't blessed with any sister. I was raised in a town of three hundred people. The town i grew up in had a lot of farm work that needed to be done so me and my brothers were pretty well know thought the town as the go to grew for little but important jobs that come with farming such as picking rock out of hay fields or building fences around places where cattle was kept. So i grew up as a farm boy. After Highs School I found that goofing off in school wasn't such a good idea so I had no money for college or other thing that I wished I could be doing. So I went to work for Davey Tree. Which is tree trimming business that is know for its big green and yellow trucks. The branch that I stared to work for had a contract with the local power company. I started as a grounds men but over time I progressed in to a trimmer which meant that i spent a lot of time around power lines and a lot of time praying that i wouldn't mess up and get myself killed. Over time I grew to love this job, but there came a time for me to move on to big and better things. That what I 'm currently doing now by serving a full time mission for the church. Serving the Lord the best i can, by spreading the joy and comfort the gospel gives me.   

Why I am a Mormon

 Well im proud to say that I was raised in the LDS family. My mother and father did there very best to raise me to and to teach me the correct principles but they always gave me my freedom of choice. So at a young age I choose to go to church. I choose to live the gospel and live all the comandments of God and so far i have nothing but blessings form it. But there was a time when i did question my faith and why i belived. So I went to God and asked him if i was in the right church, is the book of mormon a true testiment of thy son, and if Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God. Though the Holy Ghost my prayers were answered. That why im a mormon because i know it to be true.

How I live my faith

Its one day at a time. Each and everyday I strive to do my best to live the Comandments that God has set for me. Not to say that everyday I am perfect or that I aways do whats Right. I wish I could but then i remember that I am human and for the most part humans are prone to fail. But everyday is a battle, a battle that i hope to win and that over time i know i will win but in the mean time i strive to live just the very basics of the Gospel. The very basis being 1st and most importantly Prayer: Prayer has help me so much though out my life not only to bless my life but the life of others, 2nd Scripture study: The scriptures hold truths of thing that i may not see at first but through constant study i find my testimony of God and His Church grows very rapidly, and 3rd Church attendence: By attending church i met people that are going through many similar situations on there life and most importantly I am able to partake of the Sacrament and remember the the promises I have made with God. So there it is I Live my faith by keeping it simple and loving life.
