Hi I'm Dana McCloy

I'm an Australian living in America. I love french fries. I'm happy because I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Dana and I'm from Perth, Western Australia but I am currently living in Rexburg, Idaho. I love traveling and getting to experience different places and cultures! After I graduated high school, my family moved to Saudi Arabia where I lived for a short time and then I moved to United States for university, I chose to attend BYU-Idaho. About halfway through my time at BYU-Idaho, I left on my mission for 18 months. I was called to serve in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square mission. After my mission I returned back to BYU-Idaho and was later married in the Salt Lake Temple! I am so grateful for the knowledge I have that families can be together forever. I am studying Elementary Education, I love teaching and how much we can learn as we teach others.

Why I am a Mormon

My story of how I became a Mormon all began with my parents who taught me about Jesus Christ and the importance of service and kindness towards others throughout my childhood. As I got older, I had questions and wanted to know for myself if God was really there and if Jesus Christ's sacrifice for me was real. After I graduated high school, my family moved to Saudi Arabia. It was a big change that required a lot of faith from all of my family. After living there for a short time, I realized more of how lucky I was to know the gospel of Jesus Christ. I could greater see the difference it made in my family and how it had helped us through hard times. Now everyday I choose to follow Jesus Christ because it makes me happier than anything else. I want to follow Jesus Christ because I know that it is the best thing that I can be doing with my life. To know that I have a purpose here on earth brings me so much peace and comfort. I am so grateful to know that God lives and that we are all His children here on earth!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to always reach out to others! I do my best to always help and serve others because I know that is how we can show God that we love Him. I know that as we make an effort to always be selfless that life can be so much better and that we can come to be more like Jesus Christ. I love to be able to not just know the gospel, but to LIVE the gospel! And most importantly, I love to share it! Just as Jesus Christ set the example, as we follow Him, we can be that light to others.
