Hi I'm Madeline

I grew up in rural Wisconsin. I'm a lover of music, art, and expression. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a fierce love for all things artistic and inspiring. I adore painting, writing, reading and acting. I have a respect for motorcycles, skull rings, and a good video game, so I do have a hard-core side to my cheerful personality. I love people and their own personalities and how divine each person is in this wonder-filled world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised within the church. However and nevertheless, I have had many doubts and many moments where my faith was not strong and often weak. I am human first and foremost, but I live in this faith because every time I feel lost, alone among friends, confused and have the feeling that I'm on the run looking for the truths in life, I am always turned to the small and simple things in the church that keep grounded to my religion, my life. I was not raised with a father in the house, so really, the only father I have ever really trusted and known is my Heavenly Father. I was raised as the only member in my school, and I have seen things and heard many things that have tainted my beliefs countless times, but I nonetheless could never deny one thing, no matter how much I may have wanted to; the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I am reminded in life of what is real. My faith is real. It's as real as the emotions you feel are real. I still have my doubts, I still have these moments where I am confused, but I know what I know, and I know what I know is true. I am human, a Child of God. I am of a divine purpose and of a divine nature. Jesus Christ is my Friend as he is my Savior and Comforter. To say 'I know', is a claim of knowledge, and I know that my Savior lives as I breath and as I live. Never once, has He let me down.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher to the youth of the church. I can not describe in words how much I love this. Teaching is a blessed thing, and in turn, I end up teaching myself more than me teaching my students in the end. Although my class is short in numbers, I adore teaching them the marvelous and simple things of the gospel and how our lives, as we continue in them, can be joyful and good even through life's trials and tribulations.
