Hi I'm Maddie Blom

I live on Long Island, I lived in France for a year, I've been called to serve in the Korea Seoul South mission and, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout my life, I've always loved learning about cultures around the world. This love of people and culture has really shaped the way I live my life. I've developed a love for all of God's creations, especially His children. Over the past few years, I've been blessed with the opportunity to live in France for a year and now I'm multilingual. I'm the second oldest of seven children. I love my family to pieces. They're my best friends and I would not trade them for the world. I've been a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and it has been my privilege and honor to be called to serve a mission in the Korea Seoul South mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I've felt the undeniable power of the Holy Ghost testify to me of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I'm in no way perfect, in fact, I am FAR from it. But I know that I don't have to be. I just have to try my best and Christ will make up the difference. For a long time I would feel guilt and shame for the sins that I had committed. I didn't feel worthy of God's love or attention. It took me a long time to realize that God's love is an unshakable, unending, perfect love that does not go away just because we make on mistake. I know that God lives and loves all of His children. I guess I'm a Mormon because I have faith in God, in His Son and His love. This gospel is perfect because the God that created is a perfect God. The principles of this gospel are good and whole and perfect. I believe in finding truth and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church that allows us to find perfect truth.

How I live my faith

Everyday, we all have to make to decision to follow Christ and be obedient. In my own life, I've decided that I would rededicate myself to living the principle of the Gospel. By doing this, I've learned to be a better disciple of Christ. I've come to understand and love the principle taught by Jesus that, buy small and simple things are great things brought to pass. Daily scripture reading and prayer have changed my life and broadened my perspective of the world. I know that these simple things have given me the faith that I need to be obedient to the laws and commandments that the Lord has given us. So, how do I live my faith? I live it through obedience to the small and simple laws that my Heavenly Father has given me.
