Hi I'm Madison

I grew up on the tropical island of Saipan. I have played national soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old. I was born in Illinois but the only home I can remember is Saipan. My family has lived on Saipan for nearly 20 years now and we love it there. I am the second of four children. I have an older sister and two younger brothers. I am an avid soccer player. I started playing in middle school and eventually advanced to play for my island's national soccer team. Currently, I am a college student. I am studying public health. I have a job on campus as a student secretary in the Faculty Compensation office. For fun, I enjoy reading and playing guitar. Perhaps most exciting, I am engaged to an amazing man, Michael. We are getting married in August in the Dallas, Texas LDS Temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I cannot imagine it any other way. I was born into the Church but really had to work to gain my personal testimony. I have realized that, regardless of what I do, I will always believe in Christ. His Gospel is happiness. I cannot be and I do not want to be without His light ever. I am Mormon because I know the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my daily decisions. By choosing each day to read my scriptures, say my prayers, serve others, and be honest in all my doings, I am living the Gospel of Christ and being an example of my faith.
