Hi I'm Kalli McDonald

I am 19 years old, I love to sing, dance, be outdoors, and laugh! I'm a BYU student! I'm a missionary in TN! and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I graduated from high school in 2013, and was able to start college at BYU! My major is Family and Consumer science! I love singing, dancing, outdoor activities, and anything spontaneous! Mostly I love meeting new people and making new friends! I am now serving an LDS mission in Nashville Tennessee! I love Tennessee! Being a missionary is so wonderful! I love serving and helping others, it is a small way I can show my love for Gods children, and to show my love for the Lord! I am so grateful for all He has given me, and the knowledge I have of His gospel! I want EVERYONE to feel the peace and happiness that comes from living the gospel! I love it when others come to understand the gospel, and feel the spirit testify to their hearts this message is true! When we understand and follow His commandments, that is when we can feel and access the power of His atonement! Then we can feel that pure Joy that comes from fulfilling our purpose on earth!

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon and live the standards of the LDS faith because its guidelines make me happy. I have also read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed about it and I know for myself that it is true! I can be reminded of this knowledge on a daily basis by praying and by reading the scriptures! one of my favorites is when I was having a particularly hard time, and I felt really down on myself. That night I read in my scriptures the scriptures that says "my Daughter"- and I knew that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ knew and love me. I knew this gospel is true! I am so grateful that I can receive personal revelation for myself and That there are living Prophets on this earth to guide us in our day and age!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become more Christlike every day! Through using the gift of the Saviors sacrifice, or the atonement, I have the opportunity to repent and change to become the person God knows I can become. As His daughter I want to do all I can to become like our perfect example, our brother, Jesus Christ, and follow in His footsteps! I am not there yet, it someday I hope to be a person that God can rely on to do His will. Someone who spreads the Joy of His love everywhere I go, and can feel His love for each of His children! I hope someday, through working on it everyday, I will reach my full potential as a daughter of God and help others to do the same! I Love Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, who are helping me every step of the way! I know this gospel is true, because I have seen the effects it has had on my life, and the lives of others! I want to help others come to know the same.
