Hi I'm Madison

My passions are traveling, learning, and music! I believe serving someone is the easiest way to feel God's love, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a good daughter, supportive sister, compassionate teacher, loyal friend, and an enthusiastic student. I love to learn about cultures, religions, and behaviors. I am the oldest of 4 and love it. I enjoy helping people become the best that they can be. I am a student at a University, where I am studying Political Science and taking all of the pre-med courses so that I can become a Pediatrician a few years down the road. I believe that everyone has the potential to be fantastic and that through Jesus Christ we will succeed! I have a passion for music. My head is always full of lyrics and beats and I absolutely love to sing! I know that there is no quicker way for me to feel my Savior's love than when I forget about myself and my needs, and serve God's children instead. I believe that when I serve others, I am indeed serving God and that brings me lasting happiness. I love inspirational speakers who help me to understand my divine worth. My goal forever in life to inspire people, by helping them turn to their Savior in times of need and in times of delight.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me true happiness! I have found countless times in my life that when I live the commandments set by our Father in Heaven I feel joy. In comparison I have also found that when I do not make the best choices all I feel in the end is regret and sadness. Being a Mormon allows me to continually reach the potential I feel like I have. As I read the Book of Mormon and the Bible I have realized that I really can be strong. I can learn to love the way the Savior does and I can be charitable to all those around me. I love to feel the Spirit of God in my life and being a Mormon helps me to feel this everyday. I am so grateful that I have a testimony of the power of Christ's Atonement, which allows each of us to change and to be forgiven. I believe that God wants me to be happy, and that as long as I stay close to Him, I will be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every second of every day by striving to continue on a path of righteousness. I pray for strength every morning when I wake up so that I can endure the trials of the day! It took me years to begin to understand the charity that my Father in Heaven has for each of us, but once I started to put God first, it became much easier to see the bigger picture. I believe that prayer is the best thing on earth. Prayer is my relase of stress and helps me become whom my Heavenly Father needs me to be. Right now I am serving a mission in South Carolina. This has been an amazing blessing in my life. I have learned that everybody has a desire to know that they are loved! This is especially a blessing for me because for 18 months all I do is testify to people how much God loves them. It has changed my life watching this knowledge change the lives of those around me. I believe that the best way for anyone to live their faith is by example. Example in thought, word, and deed. When I am being myself and the best form of me, I can be the instrument in which God inspires someone else to change for the better.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The Prophet today is President Thomas S. Monson. He leads and guides everybody on earth. He is God's mouthpiece and He teaches us how to live better, more faithful lives. Along with teaching us, He also testifies of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer of this world. He is supported by 2 Counselors as well as 12 Apostles. Together they all make up the foundation upon which Christ has re-established His church. They are men of God. They will never mislead us. Heavenly Father loves us, more than we know. Therefore He has called Prophets and Apostles to guide His church in these days. Show more Show less
