Hi I'm Madeline Jackson

I love sunshine and rain! Pennsylvania and Delaware are my two favorite states. I love all kinds of music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I play the piano, organ, violin, and guitar. I love to sing all kinds of music! I love to be active and play outside in the sunshine! I love to go boating, play games, and watch movies with my family. I have the best family in the world! I've completed one year of school at BYU and I plan to continue my education there after my mission. I love oreos, Swedish fish, and pudding! The thing that makes me the happiest is living the gospel and sharing it with others!

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because of the incredible joy and peace that I feel as I follow the doctrines of the church. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows me personally and He wants me to be happy and follow His commandments so that I can return and live with Him again someday. I know that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who died for me. He has paid the price for my sins so that I can return and live with God again. He has also suffered and felt all my pains. I'm so grateful for His sacrifice. I know that He knows exactly what I am going through and He will give me the peace and comfort that I need as I go through life. I am so grateful for the doctrine of eternal families. I know that my family will be together forever if we follow the commandments and live according to the doctrines of the church. I'm so grateful for the Book of Mormon. I know that it is real. Joseph Smith truly did translate the Book of Mormon through the power of God. I know that as we read the Book of Mormon daily, an increased sense of peace and power will come into our lives. I'm so grateful for the Book of Mormon and for the difference it makes in my life every day. I'm so grateful for a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I know that he is led by God and he leads the church today. I know that this church is true and that it is the only way to find true and lasting joy in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by trying to serve as the Savior serves. I'm currently serving a mission in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and loving it! I love being able to talk to so many people each day.
