Hi I'm Rebecca McDonald

I love art and connecting with others. I am preparing to serve a mission in the South Carolina, Columbia Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy most form of art, from drawing and to painting, to writing and reading. I play Tennis and love to be out doors and appreciate the beauty the world has to offer. I hope to travel the world one day, meet new people and see new sites. I graduated High School last year, did a year of college and am now preparing to serve in the South Carolina, Columbia Mission. I like to listen to people, their problems and struggles, their achievements and memories. I hope I can become a person can relate to.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my parents are, and they have taught we righteously and diligently. As I grew older, I knew I couldn't depend on my parents forever, that I had to find out for myself if this church is true. I needed to be build my own belief and faith. I saw the way other lived their lives, and I knew I didn't want to be like them. I continued to live they way I was taught, prayed and sought the truth,and it brought me happiness and success. I have seen the Lords hand in my life, despite my mistakes and faults, I have felt his blessings that have guided me through my life. I have met some of the greatest examples in my life from the church, good, kind people, and am an example to my friends. I know in my heart this church is true, that the Lord loves us, no matter what, and he wants us to follow him, for therein lies true happiness. He will be there through my ups and downs, and whenever I stumble and fall, he'll give me the strength and the courage to get back up again. This church is everything to me, it has shaped me, defined me, and I know I would be lost without it's knowledge, love and light. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Bisbee is a small town, so I was always involved in my school and ward. I was involved in many clubs in High School, and was the only Mormon there. It was difficult at times, but it never stopped me from doing what I wanted to do. I was a leader among the other young women in my ward, and have recently become the representative for the young single adults in my ward. In college, in my singles ward, I was the visiting teaching coordinator, responsible for making sure the other women did their visiting teaching and reported to me.
