Hi I'm Madison

I'm from windy Spanish Fork. I love to view life as a grand adventure. Singing is my greatest passion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Madison. I am a freshman at BYU who just survived his first semester of college. I love to make every day an adventure. I love to sing and can be found randomly singing around the house, the supermarket, restaurants, and yes even the shower. If I could go anywhere in the world I would go to Italy or Istanbul because I love Roman and Byzantine architecture and culture. Recently, I was called to serve as a 2-year missionary in New York City. After my mission I hope to marry in the Mormon Temple, start a family, major in something I enjoy, and continue to go on more adventures with wife and kids. Carpe Diem!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised as a Mormon since birth, I still have to become converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ everyday. One of the best ways things that has helped me live the Gospel of Christ is reading the scriptures, particularly The Book of Mormon. Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon testifies of Christ, His earthly ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection. Every time I intently read The Book of Mormon I feel happier, lighter, full of love, and patient. after reading this book, it becomes easier to forgive, love others, and serve everyone as Christ did. The Book of Mormon helps me acquire an eternal perspective, one that helps me retain hope no matter my trials or afflictions. Through reading, studying, and living the principles in this sacred book, I have become closer to my Savior. In return, the Lord has blessed me with a deep feeling of peace. The Lord has given me this peace time and time again. I have been spiritually and emotionally healed by God's love as I have lived through my parent's divorce, verbal abuse, and everyday challenges. I love this Gospel. I love Jesus Christ. And I'm excited to share my witness of God's love with the world.

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by meeting new people everyday, brightening my family and friend's lives and serving my community by sharing my talents for singing and acting. I do my best to emulate the Savior by befriending the friendless, listening to people having a hard time, and being a light to the world as Jesus was. Most of all, I love to make people laugh and feel peace. I always try to help relieve stress, make people smile, and help people have an eternal perspective on life. I want to make sure that each person I come in contact with is left smiling.
