Hi I'm Madison Hicks

I am from Orlando, Florida. I am a student at BYU. I will be serving in the Philippines Laoag Mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in the Philippines Laoag Mission. I love rice, hiking, reading, and astronomy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have never had a stronger belief in anything in my life. I know that my Brother and Savior, Jesus Christ, died for me so that I may see our loving Heavenly Father again. I know that God has a plan for us and wants us to find happiness in this life. I know that happiness is found when we obey the commandments God has given us on the earth. Obedience and humility are attributes of Christ that I seek to emulate that will allow me to find joy in this life. This gospel has brought me a closer relationship with my family, dear friends, and a body that I have kept healthy to be able to carry me through life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by seeking constantly to become more like Christ. I study His teachings and strive to emulate his example of faith, hope, charity, and love for all. Learning to love others and see them as our Savior does is the greatest way I can live my faith.
