Hi I'm Donna Kneeland

I am a sixty-three, female, married US citizen. I enjoy learning about animals and history and watching old movies.

About Me

I am a mother and a grandmother. I am loving being a senior citizen. I spend my my time being around my family, serving in my church and in my community, and reading in my free time. I tutor in a literacy program, mentor a teenage girl in my community, and teach children in our church each week. I am fascinated by the animal world and enjoy watching wildlife programs and reading in depth about mammals. I also love history and enjoy reading non-ficition. I have traveled throughout the United States and find our country to be diverse, interesting, and beautiful in landscape. I try to enjoy life and bring some happiness to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I know my Heavenly Father loves me. I know His Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth to teach the gospel, to atone for all our sins, and to die and be resurrected so each of us can have the opportunity to live with our Father in Heaven forever with our families. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet who restore Christ's Church and who translated from ancient plates the word of God and God's plan of happiness. I know the power and authority of the Priesthood of God is here on earth today, within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And President Thomas S. Monson, who leads our church is a prophet of God, and a revelator of God's will. And finally I know, and not just believe, that I continually feel the Holy Spirit bearing witness to me in unmistakable ways that all these things are true. I am a witness of these truths and so testify.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying daily to my Heavenly Father who hears and answers each and every prayer. I read and ponder the word of God through the scriptures. I try to live Christ's example and teachings by loving everyone who comes my way by being kind and helpful. I participate in the holy, Priesthood ordinances in the Lord's temples. I serve regularly in church callings that help to santify my life. And I try to live the principles and commandments the Lord has given us through His gospel teachings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
