Hi I'm Maddy

I'm a major band geek, a pop culture guru, and an aspiring artist. Above all, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recent high school graduate. I love art and want to pursue a career in movie animation or video game design. I've started filling out my mission papers, which is so exciting! I have one older sister, who is happily married to her high school sweetheart (with a baby one the way!), one younger sister and two younger brothers. I've earned my Personal Progress medallion and I'm currently helping the other young women do the same. I am also currently serving as a youth family history consultant in my ward, which has been so much fun. I lived in Texas for about five years, but am now back in Oregon, my home state.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member for all of my life, but that certainly doesn't mean that I haven't converted. I've had many questions and doubts about my religion before, and through much study and prayer, I've come to know for a fact that this church is the one true church on the face of the earth. I love and respect its teachings and strive to live them daily. This is no longer my "parent's religion". I don't believe because my parents believe, I believe because I believe and I know that this church is true. I have my own solid testimony of this church, the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith and of Christ and his Atonement.

How I live my faith

I stand up for what I believe in. I never compromise my religion and I keep good company with people who respect my lifestyle. I love to listen and obey to the prophet's council, past and present.
