Hi I'm Ryan Jay McDonald

I grew up in Idaho as a member of the church. I am 16 years old and have gained a testimony of this gospel. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I live in Idaho. I've grown up in the church and am currently in high school. I love playing sports, but my favorite hobby is skiing. I also really loved playing contact sports such as Rugby and Football. Sadly last Rugby season I received a really bad concussion. When I went to the doctors I was told that I should stop playing all contact sports. I have had 7 major concussions and if I had continued to play and receive more concussions I could have really injured myself. It was really hard for me to stop, but the Lord has a plan for me and for you. All we can do is trust God with all our heart, might, mind, and strength.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. But just because my parents are LDS and have raised me in the church isn't the reason I attend. I go to church and pray and read the scriptures daily because I have prayed and found out from God for myself that this is His true church. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a teenager and go to church weekly. I am a home teacher and love giving lessons to others. I love the Spirit that I feel at church, and i promise you that you can learn to know who God is by attending the LDS church as it has brought me much joy.
