Hi I'm Madison Lou Penfold

I'm 14 years old. I have a pet Budgie named Neptune. I enjoy reading, playing the piano and my Viola. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Madison, but many know me as Madi. I live in Fort Collins Colorado with my parents and four siblings and have lived here since I was two. I love the outdoors and the mountains. My family has some kayaks that we love to take out on any lake we can find. My passions include reading, art, animals, and music. I play piano and viola. Up to this point I have completed three semesters if college in Idaho studying Biology and Art History. Right now I am serving a church mission in Modesto California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have ready the Book of Mormon from cover to cover and have prayed sincerely to know of its truthfulness. By living gospel standards and keeping the commandments I have felt the love of God in all aspects of my life. The Holy Ghost has helped me to know what is right and what is true. Through stumbling blocks and trials I have been able to grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior and know this is His true church.

How I live my faith

For me living my faith is an everyday thing. I attend church and youth activities often. I also am blessed to live very close to a beautiful temple where I can feel God's love for me and my family. In church I have had the assignments of class president, activities coordinator, music director, pianist, and teaching the 7 year olds. Daily I participate in family pray and scripture study as well as personal prayer and scriptures study.
