Hi I'm Maudi

I grew up in Utah. I love animals and babies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Here's a list of the things that I love that describe who I am. Animals, kids, playing the violin, competitive cheerleading, tumbling, my family, the temple, the spirit, dancing, singing, nice people, organizing, horseback riding, the outdoors, hiking, camping, four wheeling, eating, food, people, dogs, sledding, snowboarding, love, sharing the gospel, living the gospel, making new friends, watching movies, my heavenly father, Jesus Christ, my angels that watch over me and protect me, being spontaneous. That's me in a nutshell:)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church. But that doesn't mean that I was immediately converted to the gospel when I was a baby. Throughout my life I have been taught the teachings of Christ. For the most part, I have always understood the lessons and the testimonies of others. But to experience these teachings for yourself, and to KNOW with all your heart that they are true, is a whole different conversion on it's own. Throughout my life, I have always known that this gospel brings me happiness. But I have not always known that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, or that God answers my prayers, or that the stories in the Book of Mormon are true. But as I strive to live obediently, ask in sincerity in my prayers to know, and search for the answer daily, I gain a testimony of the things I'm searching for. These amazing experiences have happened to me over and over again to a point where I couldn't deny the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints even if I wanted to. I still don't know everything there is to know and I'm still not perfect. But I know that this gospel is the true plan to happiness and eternal families. This is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

One of the ways I live my faith is by going to church activities. I LOVE going to church activities! I have so much fun visiting with the people in my church, getting to know new names and faces, and eating delicious food. Some other ways that I live my faith daily is by reading my scriptures and saying my prayers. This is how i develop a relationship with my heavenly father. Another way I live my faith i by serving others. This helps me feel closer to Christ by living the way that he did and experience the feelings of love and compassion that he did.
