Hi I'm Kelsey McFadden

Hi I'm Kelsey I'm a singer, I love to dance even if i'm bad at it, I like to travel. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I didn't learn how to talk until I was three, and when I started I NEVER stopped =) The first song I ever sang was "Bye, Bye, Bye" by Backstreet Boys. I would play this song over and over again, and then I FINALLY expanded my horizons to Micheal Buble, Colby Caillat, Lady Antebellum, and The Band Perry. My love for music lead to my involvement with Dance, and Musical Theater. My Freshman year, I played Anastasia in the Production of Anastasia, and my Senior Year I danced in the Trumbell Regional Center for the Arts Production of Footloose. I'm now in my Freshman Year of College, Majoring in Business Marketing and Minoring in Piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born as the oldest child of an active LDS family. My parents raised us in Cache Valley, Utah where they taught us the gospel, and how to serve others. When I turned sixteen my family moved to Connecticut. These two years where the most difficult, because I was not surrounded with friends with the same belief system, this was strange to me. During this time, I had read the Book of Mormon but not all the way through. One day I made the decision that was going to read part of the Book of Mormon every day until I finished it. When I reached the last page, I read the promise of Moroni, and asked God if the Book of Mormon was true. I received the answer that I already knew that it was true, and that I would one day share this message with others. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and the addition that it has with the Bible. I know it is True and I want to share it with the entire World!

How I live my faith

Living my Faith has always been a big part of who I am. It means that I keep my standards no matter what environment I'm in. One time my dad took me on a business trip to North Carolina, and we were invited to have dinner at a restaurant in the city of Charlotte. While the people around me were ordering cocktails, and other Alcoholic beverages, I requested a glass of the best Strawberry Lemonade they could offer. This decision wasn't hard to make, because living my faith was more important than what others thought about me. There was another instance where a coworker of mine came up to me and said "Your Mormon aren't you" I laughed and said "Yes! How did you know?" She said back "You just have this Mormon Glow about you" I replied " What do you mean?" She said "Well your always friendly and happy all the time! I just knew you were Mormon" I smiled and said "Thanks Jessica!" and went back to work. I live my faith because it leads people of other faiths to ask questions and become interested in learning more about The Gospel of Jesus Christ.
