Hi I'm Madeline Everett

I grew up in Salt Lake City and yes, my hair is this color naturally. I love to sing and sketch, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Maddy, and I'm almost 19 years old. I am preparing to leave on a mission in September and I am so excited! When I get back I want to go into nursing. I love to take care of people and helping others anyway I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into this church. As I've gotten older, I have learned for myself what it means to be a Mormon. I love that the church believes in eternal families. I will have the opportunity to live with my family forever, that is so cool! I know that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me and loves me unconditionally, even when I may make mistakes. I know that I am never alone, even when I am in places where I don't know a single person. I love this gospel, it is all about making good choices and finding joy in the journey.

How I live my faith

I believe that the gospel is all about action. Anybody can sit and talk about how wonderful the gospel is, but I like to live my religion. I love providing service to my neighbors and friends, regardless of their religious affiliations. In high school I participated in a special needs youth program. I learned so much about kindness and compassion. I saw these individuals as my Heavenly Father sees them. I try to live my life so that others can see the image of our Heavenly Father in my countenance.
