Hi I'm Claire Macmichael

I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada. I love playing table tennis and volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite things in life include being outside on gorgeous sunny days, hanging out with friends and playing sports. So a perfect day for me consists of a ton of my friends asking me to play different sports with them outdoors. I've been going to BYU for this past year and I've loved it! I'm planning on studying chemistry education. I have been called to serve a mission and I will be heading out to serve in Bulgaria on June 28. Life is awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is the restoration of the church Jesus Christ established in ancient times; I know it testifies of the true doctrine Christ gave in that day. If that ever becomes not enough, I am a Mormon because I know the struggles I go through now and the temptations and trials that come in my life are made light through the knowledge of Christ's sacrifice for me. I am a Mormon because whenever things are hard, I can turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer and he never fails to comfort and help me. I cannot express how happy I am every day because I know of my identity and my purpose here on Earth; I am a precious daughter of God and I look forward and wait on the day when I will meet my Father and Jesus Christ again.

How I live my faith

I love being a part of this wonderful community of service and love. Jesus Christ loved and served all and so I try to pattern my life after his. This past semester I've volunteer tutored fellow BYU students and a girl in elementary school. I also have an assignment to teach lessons at church every several weeks. I try to invite all to come to church and hope they feel my love for them.
