Hi I'm Maddi Radford

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and am attending college to become an elementary school teacher. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Anthropology is my passion in life--I love culture, different peoples, and folklore. I also love singing and playing different instruments, and writing music or short stories. I love college and am attending a great university in the United States, where I've had the opportunity to work towards my 1-6 grade teaching degree. Life is awesome.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and I'm so grateful for the peace and happiness that brings. I love this Gospel because it teaches us to be nonjudgmental and loving, no matter who the person is, or what they've done. I'm so glad that I could be able to share the love that God and Jesus Christ have for us with other people. This church is really all about Christ, service, love, and joy. That's why I love it so much--the peace it brings to my life is something so unique.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in callings within my church, and serving others. Service is a huge part of this gospel, and I love to help other people. I plan on doing humanitarian projects in South America or Africa when I am done with school.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Maddi Radford
Of course not! Mormons help anyone and everyone who needs it. Service is a huge part of this religion and we love to help others, as Christ would do. We believe that when we are in the service of our fellow beings, we are only in the service of our God. This means everyone, not just other Mormons. There are many humanitarian projects done by the church for people all around the world who need aid. Show more Show less
