Hi I'm Kate MacDonald

I'm a young convert to the church. Being baptized is the best decision I've ever made! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a typical teenager. I participate in sports, and I love being outdoors. I graduated high school a year early with the class of 2016, and I start college this fall! I'm still trying to decide on a major, but I am considering music education, environmental science, or nursing. I enjoy socializing with people, and I am eager to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised Catholic, but I just always called myself a Christian. I wasn't a good Christian... I wasn't a bad kid, but I never went to church and I didn't study my scriptures often, so I didn't have a great knowledge of the Bible. I started investigating the LDS church when I started attending with my best friend, and I took a liking to the teachings and principles of the church as well as the friendly community of people. After a month, I started taking lessons friend missionaries, and a little over a month after that, I was baptized! Joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is the best decision I have ever made, and my faith continues to be a main factor in my happiness!

How I live my faith

Every day is another which can be very good or very bad. I noticed that when I started living my life to the Gospel standards and having a Christ-centered life, I started having more good days and less bad days. I like to dedicate every night to study my scriptures and fully try to comprehend the message they hold. I am the only member in my family who's apart of the church, so every day I strive to be a role model to my family as well as to my friends.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Kate MacDonald
The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. The Holy Bible is composed of stories and letters from prophets who witnessed Christ's life and works in the Middle east while the Book of Mormon writings are from those who witnessed Christ's works in the Americas, or "the New World."
