Hi I'm Maddie

Hi I'm Maddie and I play lacrosse, I have five siblings and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Maddie and I'm a lacrosse player. After my high school experience, I plan to go to BYU. I'm an athlete, I'm a friend, I'm a student, and I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon my whole life. "I was born and raised" in the church. Even though I have been a Mormon for such a long time, I still needed to find out if this church is true. After reading the Book of Mormon, going to church, and overcoming my trials, I know for a fact that this is the true church. A few days ago, my friend asked me an odd question. "How do you do it?" she asked. I said, "How do I do what?" she said, "you know...how are you such a good person? How can you withstand temptation so easily?" I replied, "Well, it's because I'm a Mormon." If I wasn't Mormon, I have no idea where I would be in my life. It's actually kind of scary to think of where I might be at this point. Being a Mormon has helped me so much in my life that I want to share it with people that need this light in their life.

How I live my faith

Every week, I go to church for three hours. Yes, three hours sounds painful, but it goes by so quickly because I'm having fun and I'm learning so much on how to improve myself and make myself a better person. Almost every night, I read some of the Book of Mormon. Before I go on, I want to say that the Book of Mormon is true. It's as fictional as Anne Frank's diary and it is just about my favorite book that's out there. Anyway, every morning before school, I go to seminary to study the scriptures. Seminary is like a kick-off to my day and whenever I don't go to seminary, I don't have as good of a day as I would have if I did go to seminary. I attend my youth group activities every week. Most of the time, we do stuff that involves service, or helping out in the community. It helps a lot because it gets rid of some of my community hours I need to complete for school. Lastly, we say family prayers every night. Saying family prayers puts me into a better mood and it makes me realize God's hand in my life better than it would if we didn't say prayers or even if I didn't live my faith like this.
