Hi I'm Madison

I am a mother of one, married to a medical student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was married to my sweetheart in 2008 and I gave birth to my first child in 2011. We are currently living on the east coast for my husband to attend medical school; all I know is the west coast so this has been a big change for me. I enjoy so many things: my husband and i are very active and love biking, camping, snowboarding, hiking, pretty much anything outdoors. I also enjoy sewing and finding crafts on "pinterest" to try out. Ever since I've been married I've enjoyed cooking more and more. I guess I like to please my man and whenever I make something new and he loves it, it makes me so excited and I want to keep trying out new things to impress him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family so that is all I've ever known. My parents are both very strong members and kept our family close to one another and the gospel. Every morning I remember my mother getting up early and reading the bible and book of mormon to us as we ate breakfast. I have always felt good about the gospel and it's teachings. As I grew older, I started to do some studying and investigation about the church on my own. I can't explain the feelings I get when I study the scriptures other that I feel that it's true. I love the teaching of the gospel and the knowledge that we have modern day prophets that receive revelation for us. I don't know where I would be right now without the gospel. It has kept me strong as a person and strong as a family.

How I live my faith

Currently in my church I have a few callings: I teach "Activity Days" which is a class for girls ages 8-12. We get together twice a month and do fun activities that build talent and knowledge in the gospel. I also teach a 5 year old class in church on Sundays. I have loved getting to know the children and youth, they all have such sweet spirits and fun personalities.
