Hi I'm Madison Michelle

I'm a college student. I'm a convert. I'm a recently returned full-time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hola. I'm Madison. I am 22 years old and currently studying to be a high school spanish teacher at the university. Spanish is my obsession. I learned how to speak it while serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Houston, Texas and have fallen in love with all things that have to do with spanish. My hobbies include, but and are not limited to reading, going on spontaneous road trips, playing tricks on my roommate, latin dancing, pretending to know how to play my guitar, baking, falling off of my longboard, speaking spanish in my best Texas accent and sleeping...well, actually, not really, I never have time to sleep, but I wish that it was one of my hobbies.

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly? Because I am 100% sure that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one true church in the world today that is led by Jesus Christ. If that statement made you cringe or seriously question the level of my sanity, well, that's alright, because I used to feel exactly the same way. Before I began investigating the doctrine and practices of the church I used to hate hearing it's members say, "I KNOW that this church is true." I would think to myself, "How could anyone KNOW which church is true? They must be lying because no one can be that sure of anything." I will forever remember and be grateful for the day that God proved me wrong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by magnifying my assignment to help the full-time missionaries that are assigned to our congregation. I often help them to teach the people who have chosen to meet with them to learn more about our church. I also teach, love, serve and guide those members of our congregation who were recently baptized. I love this assignment! It is a huge blessing to be able to aid those who recently joined our church and stand as a living witness that even though being a convert to the church can bring a lot of opposition, it is worth everything. I also volunteer every saturday at the temple. The ordinances that are performed in the temple are very sacred to me and it is an honor to be able to serve every week within the House of the Lord.
