Hi I'm mady

I grew up in Seattle, I am a chef, I am now serving a full time mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have just completed culinary school, it's very hard to be in a field where your religion is mocked daily. I am 20 and decided to put my career on hold and serve a full time mission.I love the culinary field and I'm going to miss it, but a mission is what I'm called to do at this time. In Feburary i received my call to Brazil Ribeirão Preto Mission, but as time went by, i did not recieve my visa to go to brazil so i recieved a new mission call to California Ventura Mission, i have been serving here for a year, i love the family and I love the people. and i know that the mission has helped me change my life and made me into the person i am today.

Why I am a Mormon

i know this church is true with all of my heart, im so glad that i found this church and how much god has helped me throughout my life, im so grateful for my family and my parents for teaching me the truths of the gosple at such an early age and im also gratefull that they alowed me to find my own path in life. I believe that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, i know this because i have read the book of mormon and i have gained a firm witnes that it is the word of god and through gaining that testimony i know that joseph smith is a prophet because with out being called of god no man would be able to write the book of mormon, and has suffered so much greif over it. I believe that without this religion my life would be empty and without reason, i know this because i felt as i learn more about the gosple the empty spots in my heart are full! I believe that the book of Mormon is a true book, and will bless the lives of everyone who comes in contact with it. i am so grateful for my mission, it has taught me so much and im so grateful for having the constant companionship of my best friend jesus christ and the holy spirit, i know that with out jesus christ we would be unable to live with our loving heavenly father and with Jesus Christ sacrifice he knows how best to help us, he is the one person who understands because he has gon through everything we have and will ever go through, no words can express how much i love my savior and my heavenly father. I love this church and I love being a missionary!

How I live my faith

i live my faith by example. I do not swear and I stand firm in my standards everyday without backing down to the struggles all around me.
