Hi I'm Madeleine

I love comics and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West mission. It's so exciting here! There are so many amazing people who are really strong. I also love that I can serve people who are having difficulties in their lives or the lives of their loved ones. The gospel of Jesus Christ--the "good news" of His Atonement--is something that everyone needs.

Why I am a Mormon

I work a lot with my creative talents, and I don't think I'd be able to do so without the gospel. It's the good news! It keeps me going, it protects me from addictions and other distractions, and it explains to me why I am here and how to do the right thing. It gives me a strong foundation to build my life on, so that my work actually means something, and so that I don't only have to rely on my own abilities to find purpose and meaning. I really feel like I have an exciting future ahead, and it's because of this connection I have to God and Jesus Christ. The other thing that I feel very strongly about being a member of this church is that it provides me real ways to interact with people, as well as the knowledge I need to form good relationships. My talents may be wonderful to have, but all alone they wouldn't be much worth living for. I think that the emphasis on friendship and especially on families is really important for me. I can become self-absorbed or easily sucked in by a project or an idea I've had. This church keeps me grounded in reality, and in the relationships that really matter: with my family, my friends, and most importantly, my God.

How I live my faith
