Hi I'm Madison

I'm a painter and videographer and mom. I've studied and lived close to home and abroad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In college I devoted most of my time to studying film and painting. I studied in Boston, South Korea, Germany, and wrapped things up where I started off in Logan, Utah. I served as a missionary for the church for 18 months in the Birmingham, England Mission. I spent most of my summers in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. These places and the people in them have created a rich narrative for my life. I have been forever touched by the kindness of others that I've felt around the world. So many people have helped me when I was lost, both literally and figuratively! I'm a single mom to a wonderful daughter. Although things didn't turn out the way I thought they would - like going through a difficult divorce, I have ultimately found peace through the gospel. Life is messy, it's ok!

Why I am a Mormon

Through participating in this church, I came to know Jesus Christ, and that has made all the difference in my life. I gained this belief primarily through reading the Book of Mormon. The doctrines of this church have become an anchor to my soul. I have searched diligently to come to believe these truths for myself. It was not an easy or short journey, but it has been the most rewarding. I continue to learn and to grow only to find that my happiness continues to increase. Regardless of belief, I have a deep love and appreciation for all of God's children, and I believe that we all enrich each other's lives.

How I live my faith

I participate weekly in Sunday meetings with our local congregation. Sometimes I have taught gospel lessons from the scriptures, other times I have helped plan activities, like talent shows. I live close to the Logan, Utah Temple. Living my faith is founded in the simple things that I try to do every day, like praying and reading my scriptures. These activities have built my spirituality the most. Striving to follow Jesus Christ has helped shape the way I see the world and has changed my heart.
