Hi I'm Madelyn

I'm a rock climber. I'm a violinist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a missionary in Portland, Oregon. I'm from Salt lake City. I have 3 sisters and a dog. I was born with a Congenital Heart Defect known as Single Ventricle. I like to rock climb, play the piano and violin, and hang out with my friends. I love my family! My sisters are my best friends and my parents are amazing supporters. I went to college for a little bit before my mission and I studied Graphic Design. I love life and I love serving the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel has changed my life. I honestly do not know where I'd be without the influence of Jesus Christ in my life. I have gone through very hard things in my life. I was born with a very serious heart problem, but because of that, I have been able to draw closer to Christ. Through his example, I have learned how to look at people as Christ would see them. The gospel is true and I want to share it with the world. I am a Mormon because this church has brought me the opportunity to obtain eternal happiness. I am a Mormon because Heavenly Father is always there for me, and He wants me to become like Him, so that I can return to Him again.

How I live my faith

My favorite parts of my day are when I can take a few minutes and read from the Book of Mormon and pray to Heavenly Father. At those times, I can feel Heavenly Father's love. This gospel is more than just a church to go to, it's a way of life. It's a way for me to continually grow closer to my Savior and apply his teachings.
