Hi I'm Madelyn

I love my family. I love horses. I'm currently serving in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission.

About Me

I love sports. Especially Volleyball, Golf, and Dressage! I grew up in Heber City, Utah with the best childhood anyone could ask for. I love to sing and play the guitar. Ice cream is my weakness.. especially on a hot summer day. Music, running, and laughter are my go-to sources whenever I am down in the dumps. I am 21 years old and currently serving in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission and loving every minute of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for so many different reasons. I know that the way to gain eternal happiness comes through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Through obedience to the commandments we have been given, we protect ourselves from the snares and traps that the adversary sets. I have come to know of the peace and joy that our Father in Heaven has in store for us through this church. What a blessing it is to know that we can return to live with our Father in Heaven and be with our families eternally.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of the believers. I try and stand up for what I believe in all situations. It is a work in progress, but being on a mission has definitely helped me do a better job of this! I fall short of perfection everyday, but I try my hardest to learn from my mistakes and move forward with faith. I love the opportunity that I have as a missionary to literally bear the name of Jesus Christ on my chest everywhere I go. It helps me keep in mind how my thoughts, actions and words should be.
