Hi I'm Madison Barlow

I am from Farmington Utah and I am preparing to serve the Lord in the Canada Calgary mission. I am a mormon.

About Me

I leave for the Canada Calgary mission on February 17, 2016. I love spending time with my family and friends. I love helping my grandma who is an elementary school. I love kids. I am so grateful to have the church be a part of my life and to learn to love and care for all of those around me. I cant wait to be servant of the lord and to be able to help others come unto Christ and to be the happiest that they can be. my favorite scripture is in Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine that men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven. I love how it says to let your light shine, each one of us has our own light and we can show it at any time, by being an example, being a friend, or helping someone in need. I feel that is a main purpose that I chose to go on a mission so that I can be those things and show others that not only i love them but that there heavenly father loves them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe that this is the church that Jesus Christ established when he came to this earth, I know that I am a daughter of God and that he loves me more than i could ever imagine. I know that Jesus Christ is his son and that he is my brother and i am out her representing him as a missionary. I know that heavenly father and Jesus Christ really did visit Joseph Smith and they gave him the direction and authority to give us the Book of Mormon, and i know that they are words from god. I am so grateful for this Gospel that we have and the happiness that it brings my family and I.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example. letting others know what I stand for and what make me happy. I try and teach simple gospel principle to other whenever i have the opportunity to. Now i am currently serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints in the Canada Calgary mission, It is so amazing to be here as a representative of Jesus Christ and to let other know what makes me happy and what can make them happy as well.

What is faith?

Madison Barlow
Faith is described perfectly in a scripture from the Book of Mormon, in Alma 32: 21 It says " And now as i said concerning faith, faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen which are true" Faith is not a perfect knowledge of the gospel and everything that the Mormon church has to offer, it is knowing that something happened without actually seeing it. For some people it is hard to have Faith and i have struggled with it as well but i just remember that I cannot see everything that happened but i know that one day i will be able to, I will be able to meet Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and than I will know that they are truly who they say they are. To have faith in god is to trust in him, we all have to have the confidence in ourselves and be willing to act upon what he has given to us. Show more Show less
