Hi I'm Madison Christensen

I am a proud citizen of the South. I love learning about different people and cultures and exploring. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a first year college student studying Physiology and Developmental Biology. I love learning about the world and how things work. I like to go exploring and learning about different languages and people. I believe in working hard, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, and being grateful for the challenges the Lord had placed in your path. I'm a sister, a daughter, a friend, a granddaughter, and an aspiring soldier. I love my country, my God, and my family.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandparents joined the church when my mom was young. She is the youngest of six children and the only child to remain active in the church. It is because of my mom and my grandparents that I grew up with such a strong foundation in the church.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving an 18 month mission for my church. I am serving in a full-time proselyting mission. I love having the opportunity to teach people about the gospel and do community service. It is one of the best jobs I have ever had.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Madison Christensen
Our purpose here on Earth is to learn and grow through our own personal trails and experiences. In John 16:33 we learn that we will all face challenges in life, but that through a loving Redeemer we can overcome our challenges. This life is a time to prepare to meet God and become more like Him. It is also a time to have joy and find happiness through learning and applying the principals found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
