Hi I'm Madeline

I am a reader, a writer, a learner, an over-achiever, a sister, a wisher, a hoper, and a dreamer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time college student, studying English Literature, specializing in British Literature. I am probably the biggest nerd on the planet. Reading and writing are my passion, and I hope to pursue a career that involves both. I come from a massive family and they are my life. My parents taught me to read, to dream and to work. I love to look for the deep things in life, and I find beauty in both the rumble of the city and the majesty of nature. I love music and exercise, though I am not nearly as talented in either field as I would like to be. I want to do something significant with my life, and just like those cliché fairy tales say, "live happily ever after, to the end of my days".

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I am not a Mormon because my parent's made me, or because my friends are Mormon. I have made the decision for myself. I have read and studied the scriptures, I have prayed to my Heavenly father and I have made an honest effort to seek out the truth for myself. I am a Mormon because living the gospel standards fills me with peace, hope and true happiness in every aspect of my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith like one would apply any sort of lifestyle. I love my savior and the wonderful opportunities for growth and happiness that come from applying those things that I believe. I live my faith by seeking opportunities to better myself and those around me through both secular and spiritual things. I try to keep my body, and mind healthy and pure by abstaining from alcoholic drinks and smoke, as well as sexual relationships before marriage. This has been such a blessing, helping me find good friends and strengthen my relationships with others. In living my faith I look for the good in others and recognize everyone as children of God with the potential to change the world. Perhaps the greatest way I live my faith is by choosing to be happy with all of the blessings in my life and encouraging others to be happy as well.
