Hi I'm Madeleine

I'm a foodie, adrenaline junkie, traveler, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Texas, but went to high school in Colorado. I love to ski, run, and scuba dive. I have traveled to 15 different countries, and would like to hit 100 before I die. I currently attend University in the United States, hopefully studying to become a dietetic so I can continue to foster my love of good food!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, however, that is not why I still am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true, I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know that each of us is a child of God, who loves us unconditionally, and that because of the atonement, we can turn to Him no matter what happens in our lives. No matter what we have done, He is waiting for us with open arms. I know that He loves us so much that He sent His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to die for us so that we may return to live with Him one day. I know that in the Garden of Gethsemane, Christ not only felt the pains of our sins, but every single pain that we experience. He knows each of us and has felt the pains of every singe trial we experience whether they were self-inflicted or not, He knows our sorrows and is waiting for us to use His atonement so that we can return to live with Him again. Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Redeemer, and my best friend. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. Reading it every day has changed my life for the better. It invites the sweet spirit into my life, which is so precious to me. I know that when I am living worthy of that spirit, the Holy Ghost, only then can I experience true joy. That is what this gospel has given me: True, pure, Joy.

How I live my faith

I am about to embark on a new adventure serving as a missionary! I am so excited to become a missionary so I can devote 100% of my time to serving the Lord by reaching out to His children (us!) and serving them and loving them.
