Hi I'm Madaline

I'm a student. I'm a feminist. I'm a Colorado native. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Political Science major with Spanish and Women's Studies minors. I studied Spanish for a semester in Madrid, Spain and realized that traveling made me braver and flamenco made me want to fall in love. I feel like I'm just getting to know the world, but I'm finding that the greatest good outweighs all of the bad.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were members of the Church. My maternal grandparents joined the Church around the same age I am now and my father joined shortly after college. I knew that they had made great sacrifices to join the Church, and I knew that I needed to find out for myself why belonging to this Church was so important. I found that membership to this Church was important because it was in fact Jesus Christ's Church; it taught His doctrines, worshipped Him, urged the use of His Atonement, and declares that He lives. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ because I have felt His love and overcome weaknesses through the power of His Atonement. I have prayed to know that the records of Him in both the Bible and Book of Mormon are true. I have prayed to know that this is His true Church and because I know it is, it is where I will stay.

How I live my faith

I have grown up serving as a youth leader in the Church's program for young women. I have become a part of the women's organization since beginning college. The opportunities I have had to teach and serve through these programs has helped inspire me to serve a full-time mission and spend eighteen months doing just that: teaching and serving.
