Hi I'm Madison Bauer

I'm an In-n-out fanatic, I'm a History buff, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hi! My name is Madison and I am a full time missionary currently serving in the California Irvine mission. I am 20 years old and from Nampa Idaho. People are my passion. Walking up to random strangers and sharing my testimony of Jesus Christ with them is my favorite part of missionary work. I am 5'10" and i love being a full time representative of my friend Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. Simple as that. Having the knowledge that I am a divine daughter of my Father in Heaven and that He loves me has made all the difference in my life. Knowing that even when I feel that no one else does, I have a Savior who loves me and knows EXACTLY how I feel during everything brings me so much peace and joy. I am a Mormon because I know that God has a perfect plan for each of us to return into his presence one day, and living by the teachings in this faith I will be able to make it back with him.

How I live my faith

Because my faith and my relationship with my Savior means everything in the world to me, I am serving a mission to help those around me to experience the same blessings that I have experienced. I live my faith by trying everyday to be the best I can, and when I fall short of perfection as i do everyday, I repent. I am in a constant state of progression, and I am so thankful for the endless chances I receive from my Father in Heaven.

What is the priesthood?

Madison Bauer
The Priesthood is God power on the earth. The power that Jesus Christ gave to his apostles through laying his hands on their heads. Its the power that God gives man to do his work on the earth and to teach his gospel. It is the same power that was given to the Prophet Joseph Smith to once again establish and teach the gospel on the earth today. Show more Show less
