Hi I'm Maddie

I'm 19 years old. I'm putting everything on hold to serve a mission in California. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi! I'm Maddie, and I'm a 19 year old student at Brigham Young University. In high school, I played softball, volleyball, and was very involved with my newspaper. I won several state awards for my writing, and became an editor by my senior year. I just completed my first year at BYU, where I had the best times of my life (so far!). Right now, I am called to the California Rancho Cucamonga mission, where I will be preaching the Gospel in the Spanish language.

Why I am a Mormon

Because Mormonism makes me so happy! I feel my best when I am living Christ's teachings as much as I can. Of course I am not perfect, nobody is. But this Gospel brings such hope and peace, its okay that I'm striving toward perfection. Mormonism gives me a greater goal and purpose, and has made me who I am today.

How I live my faith

Obviously, I am preparing and working towards my goal of a mission. When I leave, I will be living my faith quite literally of every second of every day for 18 months. I will become a full-time servant of Christ, by acting the way he would and sharing the Gospel in the way he did.
