Hi I'm Madison Jae Beardall

I'm a chit-chatter, writer, and passionate frozen yogurt enthusiast. I love Indie and punk music,and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just completed my first year of college, and I am in a Microbiology undergraduate degree, with hopes of going to Medical school. I adore college. The social setting, the constant opportunities to learn and grow, YSA wards, the whole deal is really where I am in my element. I love summer. For years and years, boating has been a big deal to my family, so four or five nights each week during the summer you can find me on the lake. I love to paddle board, and wake surf. I have always loved to be outdoors, and have been blessed to live in an area where I have many outlets where I can express that love. While I was in high school, I discovered that I have a love of writing. I am always writing my thoughts down in a leather bound book, and they often come out in poems. Writing has been a saving grace for me, and its something I really enjoy. I have always have had a deep rooted passion for music, whether its playing, listening, or participating in. I play the violin, guitar, and piano, and have always loved singing. Some bands I really love are, Mayday Parade, A Day to Remember, City and Colour, but my very favorite is Twenty One Pilots.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed in being born into a strong family in the Gospel of Christ. The examples that have been set for me within my home are what have helped develop the testimony I have today. I know that the principals and doctrines of this Gospel bring happiness and true peace. We live in a chaotic world that has increasingly less happiness and peace in it. When I am striving to be Christlike in my dealings, I can feel that peace in my life. I continue to believe, and renew my efforts in this Gospel because it is the primary source of knowledge, light, peace and happiness in my life. When I am striving to learn from my scriptures, through personal prayer, and through my honest dealings with my peers, I can feel that unprecedented happiness. On the contrary, when I become complacent or ignorant to the simple truths that are taught, the absence of peace and blessings is palpable. To avoid those feelings of doubt, and remorse that come with disobedience, I strive daily to come closer and gain more light and knowledge that the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings through repentance, and obedience.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through simple actions of obedience. I strive each day to be better, in every aspect of my life. Even though I often fall short, I know that I can try again harder the next day, or week, or month. One of my favorite aspects of this Gospel is the concept of progression. If we are truly trying to live the principals of this Gospel, we will never be stagnant. I live my faith by always traveling forward on the road of progression. This is not always met with success, but even in failure, I can progress with knowledge. I live my faith by sharing my testimony, not through words, but through the way I treat others. I live my faith by listening to the prophets teachings and implementing them into my life. I am able to live my faith through daily scripture study and personal prayer. I live my faith through keeping an eternal perspective through the ups and downs of this mortal experience. I live my faith by following our Savior, Jesus Christ.
