Hi I'm Maddy Johnson

My name's Maddy J. Mostly, I'm found talking, hanging w/ friends, taking peeps to church activities, & I’M A MORMON!!!!!

About Me

I love to hangout with friends, talk, play basketball, swim, sing, and cheer others up. Most the time I can be found either talking, hanging with my best friend, Alissa, or just chilling. I love serving others, and try to be as nice as I can be. I love sharing my testimony, teaching others about my church, taking my friends to church activities, and I'm a Mormon :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the true church. I have been in it since I was born, and in every Mormon church I've gone to, the members have always been really nice to me. Whenever I bring a friend to church, everyone welcomes them. I know that if you make a mistake, whether it be large or small, you can always be forgiven. I believe that no matter what you do wrong, our heavenly father will not judge you, and he will always forgive you. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and that Thomas S. Monson is today's true prophet. I know the Book of Mormon is true.

How I live my faith

There are many ways I live my faith. I read the scriptures, pray, invite my friends to church activities (pool parties, dances, seminary, etc.) serve others, and share my testimony.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Maddy Johnson
Mormons dress for church in their "Sunday best". This includes modest dresses and skirts for women, (knee length or longer) and suits, dress shirts, sport coats, and ties for men. Children usually dress up for church in modest clothing as well. Mormons celebrate Christmas and Easter, because these holidays represent important spiritual days in history because of the birth, suffering, death, and resurrection of the savior Jesus Christ. Mormons also celebrate regional and national holidays of the countries in which they live, and also birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc. Show more Show less
