When we were thinking of ladies that we would like to ask to participate in the "Daughters of Yah" posts I thought of McKenzie. Not just because she has a beautiful, magnetic personality (which she does), not just because she has such a zest for life and a love for Yahweh (which she does) but because to me she represents a woman who fearlessly seeks to serve Yahweh despite her circumstances. Unlike most of the ladies who have written for "Daughters of Yah", McKenzie has grown up in a family that has different beliefs than she does. Yet, McKenzie has grace and love for her family and they are also respectful of her choices and beliefs. So thank you again McKenzie. -Bethany
First off, a special thanks to the lovely ladies of Everyday Set-Apart for asking me to do a post for them. I am so thankful that I get to share a bit of my story and walk of faith.
Everyone is led on different paths and lifestyles. We each live a life specifically designed and unique for a purpose—bringing glory to our beautiful Elohim.
My name is McKenzie Mauck, and I am 19 years old. I, like some other believers out there, live in a household with a family that is not Torah observant. My walk of faith is supported with that of a loving fellowship and mispacha of like-minded believers.
I was also asked to give some resources that have helped me in my walk. I have read several books over the last year, but here is a list of my top three:
Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge
The Lost Art of True Beauty by Leslie Ludy
A Woman After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George
Remember to keep faith and prayer constant in your life. It is important to give yourself anew every day and continue to grow. Open your heart and mind to Him. Yahweh will only take you as far as you are willing to let Him.
Blessings and peace be to you!
