Hi I'm McCall Padelsky

Called to serve in the Motherland. Japan Tokyo South. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Just your average girl, trying not to let her ambitions go to waste.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both converts to the church, so I was lucky enough to be raised in the church. But you can only rely on your parents/others testimonies for so long. Eventually I gained my own testimony of Christ and his teachings. It was the best thing I could have done for myself, and I haven't looked back since. It has shaped me into the person I am today! Through the gospel I have learned what true joy and happiness feels like!

How I live my faith

I've heard many people say that being a Mormon is hard. Sure, it requires work and effort, but I feel that if you truly have faith...it's not hard. If you believe in what you're doing, it's not a challenge. I choose to live the way I do, because I love the gospel and everything it stands for. I try and do my best each day, some days I succeed and other days I don't, but that just means the I have to try a little harder the next day. That's the beauty of it all, you don't have to be perfect, you just have to do better than you were the day before.
