Hi I'm Madeline Hardy

I am a Middle School Teacher. I am a musician. I survived a 30 feet rock-climbing fall. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Middle School Teacher, and I love it! I am a sports enthusiast, I enjoy running, swimming, and biking. I also love music, and teach piano on the side. My very favorite thing, however, is to spend time with my friends and family. My loved ones bring much joy to my life!

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel provides answers for the questions we all have. Why are we here? Where are we going? The scriptures teach us that we are children of God, and that we are of divine nature. We are here to gain agency, and despite challenge, choose the good. I believe that one day, we will return to live with our Heavenly Father and our loved ones for eternity. This knowledge provides peace and direction for my life.

How I live my faith

2 years ago, I was in a life-threatening rock-climbing accident. Doctors told me that my heart should have stopped at impact. I shattered my arms, and fractured my hips. This experience realigned my perspective to what matters most. I learned that the Atonement is not only for repentance, but heals and enables us to overcome challenges inherit to this life. When we learn to turn to Christ, He will strengthen us allow us to endure what we could not do alone. He loves me so much. And He loves you!
