Hi I'm Maddie

Hi! I live in Utah. I was raised in the church my entire life. I want to cure cancer. I am a Mormon. :)

About Me

Hi! My name is Maddie, and I am a huge geek! I've always loved science and history. I want to cure cancer when I finish college. I love to play the violin, read, play video games, and hang out with my friends. My favorite types of music are indie and rock. I love to meet new people, but I'm actually kind of shy in real life. I love being on the Internet because I can be myself and meet people with my same interests.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger, I attended church purely out of obligation. I lived with my parents, and my parents were Mormons, so I went to church with them. They made me get up and put on a skirt and go. We read the Book of Mormon as a family. I participated with them. But when I was in junior high, I realized that if I really wanted to be happy, I needed to find out for myself whether or not the Church and its beliefs were true. I read the Book of Mormon on my own and prayed to receive guidance from it. And now that I am an adult, I know for certain that this church is true. It brings me joy, and happiness, and guidance, and peace. I am a Mormon because I want to be with people who love me forever. Not just through this life, but for eternity. And that can be achieved through this church.

How I live my faith

I recently joined the YSA ward in my area, or the Young Single Adult ward. It's for young adults ages 18 and up who want to meet new people their same age and join a new community. It's super fun! There are lots of activities and opportunities to make new friends.
