Hi I'm Maddy

I grew up in Dublin, Ohio. I love anything outdoors. I'm a mormon.

About Me

In high school I loved anything about art or the outdoors. I'm still practically the same. I love working with little kids. I hope to someday become an elementary school teacher. My mom joined the church when i was 2. My mom and I are the only members of our immediate family who are members. I'm serving a mission in Vancouver Canada.

Why I am a Mormon

Because of my previous experiences and the power of prayer, I come to find that this church is true. Before I opened my mission call, I made sure to finish the Book of Mormon. I then prayed and asked Heavenly Father if the book was true. I suddenly felt a peaceful feeling come over me, and a thought came to mind (from the spirit), "Maddy, think about how you feel sitting in church. Think about those times that you have asked a question and it was answered. It might not have been answered right away but it was answered. Heavenly Father loves you and you feel that all the time." It was just a reassurance that I knew that this church was true. I knew it, but because i asked I was given assurance. I was given my testimony. James 1:5

How I live my faith

I was a ward missionary last year in my YSA ward. I loved that calling because I was able to prepare for becoming a missionary with people I knew. I was able to help them and teach them. I soon became a 90 day missionary which helped me even more prepare for my full-time mission. I studied the preach my gospel weekly and every Sunday, during second hour, we talked about our missionary experiences from the week before. Now, I am a full-time missionary preparing to serve the people of Vancouver Canada.
