Hi I'm Maddie
I went to college in Utah and then returned to my home state. After much deliberation I decided to put off school and serve a mission in Knoxville, Tennessee. I am currently on my mission I started Feb.2 2011- Aug. 2, 2012. I am so exited that I get to share the gospel with other and let them know how happy it makes me in my life. Some of my hobbies are hanging out with friends, snowboarding, listening to music, and shopping just to name a few.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born and raised in the church although when i went away for college i really had to decided if this is what i wanted for myself. My parents wheren't there to tell me i had to get up and go to church. I struggled with this for a time but in the end i decided that I wanted to be a member of the church for myself and no one else. I know that Jeasus Christ lived and still lives. I have read The Book Of Mormon and i know for a fact that this gospel was restored to this earth once again just as in olden times. I would encourage anyone reading this to read The Book Of Mormon for themselves and find out if it is true. The only way that you can know for yourself is to read and then pray with real intent to know that the Book Of Mormon is ture. What better way to find out than to ask our Heavenly Father who is the source.
Why do Mormons go on missions?
I am currently serving a mission in Knoxville, Tennessee. I decided to go on a mission becuase i wanted to share the gospel with other. To let them know how happy it makes me and how it has blessed my life. How it can bless the lives of others as well. I am so happy i have made this choice to serve the Lord.
How has The Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?
Through reading the Book of Mormon i have come to know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me! He wants me to keep the commandments and aline my will with his. So in turn i can once again live with him when i die.
How I live my faith
I live my faith every day i don't have to be a missionary to do that. It's the little things you do that can show your faith to other by being an example. In the church i with the other Sister Missionary teach a gospel principles class to help people to learn more anout the gospel or to help strengthn what they already know. In the community we help people by letting them know how they can come closer to our Savior Jesus Christ more than they already are. I love being a missionary it brings such joy in my life to help other have that peace and joy as well.
