Hi I'm Madeline Clawson

I love music. I play the piano and have played since a very young age. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports and I am very competitive. I also love music and have played the piano since I was about the age of 3 and my mom has been my teacher. I am preparing to serve a full time mission in Louisiana. I am the first grandchild and first great grandchild to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have never had a big bang moment of conversion. Why I choose to live the gospel and be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is because of my simple faith and belief in my Savior Jesus Christ. I have never doubted that He is my Savior. I have a strong testimony of prayer and that He is always there listening and that even during the times we might not think He is there that is the time He is definitely there listening to us. The times I don't want to pray are the most important times to pray and the times I really do need to pray. He either walks side by side with us or He carries us during the times we cannot seem to lift up our heads to get through the muck.

How I live my faith

Right now I am called as a full time missionary and am preparing to leave. I have served as class presidents in my youth groups. I have had many callings of pianist in my young women's group and as a ward accompanist.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Madeline Clawson
Without faith in Jesus Christ our relationships will falter all around us because we do not have a strong relationship with Him. Without Christ in our lives we are unhappy and everything falls apart nothing ever works out. If we cannot trust or have faith in Jesus Christ we cannot expect our relationships with other people and our friendships to be successful. Show more Show less
