Hi I'm Madison

Adventure, the ocean, ice cream, the smell of fall, friends and family, pineapple, and a good book, are all I need. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The first thing you need to know about me is that my favorite food is pineapple and that I am an Army brat. I was born in Colorado, but I have been all over the world. Hawaii, Germany, Washington, and Tennessee just to name a few. I am also attending Brigham Young University- Idaho. I don't have a major set in stone just yet but I m contemplating between psychology and law. I want to do something that helps people and makes a difference in the world. With all of the traveling I have done growing up it has become a very influential part of my life. I love it! I honestly don't know what I'd do without it! My favorite color is blue, and my favorite season is Autumn. My family means a lot to me and so do my friends. They are my Ohana ("Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten"- Lilo & Stitch). I also love Disney! I like to read, learn new things, play sports, and just be outside.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon simply because I know that the gospel is true. I have a testimony that God is real and that He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to the Earth to atone for all of our sins. I know that He did that so that we can one day return to live with them in Heaven. He lives and is there for us always. I know that they love us and know us better than we know ourselves. They know what's best for us and will always be there for us, I have a testimony that we have a living prophet today and his name is President Thomas S. Monson. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and with God's help he was able to restore the fullness of the church. I know that as we keep the commandments and do what God wants us to, we will be blessed. I love the gospel and this church; they have blessed my life immensely. I am a Mormon because the gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I am the first person in my family to decide to serve a full-time mission. I have been called to serve in the Adriatic North Mission and will report to the MTC very soon!
