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!!
