Hi I'm Madeline Luczak

I grew up in Utah and I'm preparing to serve an LDS mission to Fukuoka, Japan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a red head born and raised in Utah. I love to spend time with my family and friends. Traveling, camping, hiking, and boating are some of the things I like to do because I love to be outdoors and explore new places and cultures and meet new people. I like to play soccer and volleyball. Music is very important to me and I love singing and playing the piano. I go to school at BYU and am majoring in Elementary Education. Currently, I am preparing to serve an LDS mission in Fukuoka Japan and will be reporting on July 22, 2015. I have a twin sister who will be serving in Kobe, Japan leaving on the same day. She is my best friend and the greatest example I know. My pride and joy is my little dog, Belle.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows who I am personally is incredible. He will always be there to answer my prayers and help me to learn and grow. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is my absolute favorite part of the gospel. Christ died for me and for you and for everyone who lives, has lived, and will live. He died so that I can change and be forgiven of the mistakes I have made. He died so that I could be comforted and feel at peace. I know that every hard thing I have gone through was paid for by my elder brother, Jesus Christ. He died because He loved us, and I will forever be grateful for His ultimate sacrifice for me. I know that someday we will be reunited with our loved ones and family members who have passed on. It will be a joyous day, and i testify that it will occur. I'm so grateful for this gospel and the impact it has had in my life and in the lives of others. This gospel has taught me so much and I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity I have to be a part of it and share my testimony with the people of Japan.

How I live my faith

I love serving others and getting to know people. I learned a lot about visiting teaching when I went to school. The girls I visited and my companion taught me way more than I could have ever taught them. I will never take this calling for granted because I know the blessings that it can bring. When I was at school, I played the piano for the Relief Society and I have also had the opportunity to serve as a family history consultant and in the presidencies in my Young Women classes. Callings are amazing opportunities for you to learn and grow.
