Hi I'm Austin McDonald

I grew up in Utah and I am now living in England . I love seeing the world and being active. I love my family and friends.

About Me

I am 18 years old and living half way around the world from where I originally grew up. I am very social and love talking to and meeting new people. I like playing sports and staying active. Nothing like a good football match. I have 4 younger siblings and love being an older brother. Family and friends are very important to me. I grew up in the church but that doesn't mean I haven't been converted myself. I have had to find out for myself the truthfulness of the Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon and I have prayed and found for myself that it is true. All the answers of all the questions in the gospel are in The Book of Mormon and if you continually read everyday you will know for yourself as well.

How I live my faith

Just like all members of the church we all need to convert. Even those who grew up in the church. I have gone to church my whole life but it never meant anything until I had a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel and The Book of Mormon for myself. I have had to work very hard for this testimony and hold it very close to my heart. A testimony is not just handed to you from The Lord. Like everything valuable or important in the world it takes lots of hard work and effort to get a testimony of Jesus Christ and when you do you have to continually nourish it every single day or you will lose it. Everyday I read from The Book of Mormon, continually applying the teaching to my life and my circumstances. I also continue to pray every morning and night and through out the day. Trusting in God in everything , even the little things, are how you will build and sustain the little faith that you yourself were born with.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?
