Hi I'm Maddie

I love life and all of the surprises and blessings that come with it. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a student attending University and I am loving gaining my education! Life can be hard sometimes with decisions that need to be made and responsibilities to keep up with but I love to be happy and to enjoy as much of life as I can. I have a wonderful family who I love so much, wonderful friends who are examples to me of how to live life happily and fully, and I have the knowledge of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. Basically I am just super blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on this earth. I know that by being a member of this church and keeping the covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father and having faith and enduring to the end is the only way I can make it back to my Heavenly Father after this life. I know that there is a plan for me and I know that Jesus Christ gave His life so that the plan can be fulfilled and so that I can be reunited with my Father in Heaven and live eternally with my family.

How I live my faith

I am in a singles ward at my University. Right now, my calling is to be on the Family History Committee. I just have to say that I love Family History. I love being able to connect with people from the past and learning about them and their lives. I think that we can learn so much by looking at the lives of people that have gone before us, and we can gain inspiration from the way they lived. There are so many inspiring stories of people either in the Gospel of Jesus Christ or just people that lived their lives fully and as best as they could. I love going to church every Sunday! I feel like going to church refills my reserves and helps me get through each week. The talks, lessons and testimonies that I hear in church are so inspiring and help me feel the spirit and the love that my Heavenly Father has for me. I love it!

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of this Church is so, so great. There are so many blessings that come from having the knowledge of the restored gospel. The hope that comes from knowing why I am here on this earth and where I am going after this life is such a comfort. Being a member gives me purpose in life. I am here to gain experience and knowledge and to develop myself so that I can become like God, my Father in Heaven. I have so much to rejoice about! I can receive revelation for my life directly from my Heavenly Father; I can talk to Him and receive guidance from Him. I have the gift of the Holy Ghost, who is a comforter and guide. I can be with my family for all eternity! Being a member of this church also brings a lot of responsibility though. I have to follow the commandments in order to receive all of these blessings. I have to live my life worthily and make good decisions. But the fact that I can repent and start over if I make a mistake is something that I am so grateful for. I know that Jesus Christ sacrificed His life for me and made it possible for me to repent and to get back on the path that will lead me back to my Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
