hey there!!  my name is makail bain and i am a mormon.  there are a few things you should know about me.  first, i love a breath of fresh air so being outdoors is the place to be.  the beach, the mountains, the backyard – that’s where you’ll find me.  outside somewhere.  second, i’m a family gal.  my family is top priority and my everything.  the beautiful thing about family is that you don’t necessarily have to be blood related; if you got a heartbeat, you’re family.  third, i love Jesus Christ.  he is my savior and redeemer and the reason i woke up this morning.

alright, let’s get to the point.  why have i started a blog??  well it could be because it’s the thing to do these days.  it seems everybody has a blog!  ok…not everyone, but you get what i’m saying.  this is something i’ve thought a lot about and was a little at war with the idea.  i’m not a blogger.  blogging has never appealed to me but there are a few reasons i am going to blog anyway.

the real reasons include the following:  i hope that this will be a good way for me to keep in touch with family and friends.  i don’t have to shove my happenings in washington state down your throat but if you would like to see what’s going on, it’s right here.  i hope that this will give me the chance to organize my thoughts and put purpose behind my writing.  i hope that i will be able to help and support other  future missionaries (especially those headed out to everett washington).  and i hope that this will be another positive way to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

by reading this blog i hope that you will be able to get a feel for my journey in washington, maybe get a good laugh, be uplifted, and feel the love of our savior.

small disclaimer:  i like lists.  sorry.  i am not an english major, journalist, or blogger so please be patient and understanding with my weaknesses.  i’m going on an lds mission and will bear testimony often.  if i sound preachy it’s because i’m preaching.  i will be as polite as possible and i will be 100% honest.  these posts will be my thoughts and beliefs.  if you have any questions please ask!!  chances are that i won’t know the answer right away but i will do my best to find out or refer you to a better source.  and just so you know, i appreciate feed back so feel free 😉

well thanks for stopping by!!
