Hi I'm Maddie Pedersen

I'm a actress, a musician, a baker, a student, a friend, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a theatre fanatic. I have been doing theatre since 5th grade (8 years) and have participated in 19 shows since. Right now I am a theatre studies major with an emphasis on performance at Brigham Young University-Idaho, hoping to make a difference in this world. I am the second oldest of 5 children and family is very important to me. I also play 5 instruments: Voice (17 years), piano (5 years), ukulele (2 years, guitar (4 years), and the nose whistle (10 years off and on).

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to this gospel by my loving parents. I am a mormon simply because it makes me happy, and I can't imagine my life without it. My favorite thing about this gospel is how happy, loving, and Christ-centered it is. To have a family that stays after death and for "infinity and beyond" is one of the greatest blessing in my life. I have been blessed by this gospel in countless ways and I live the way I do because I know it will bring me an everlasting happiness. Because of this gospel I know some of my purpose in life. I have direction that will only bring me closer to my end goal, to be with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am very involved with within the church. I have held many callings such as: ward council, ward music chair person, ward choir director, and many leadership positions in the young women's program. Right now, I am working towards turning in papers to serve a mission for 18 months.
