Hi I'm Madeleine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Madeleine! I was born in Philadelphia, but I've spent most of my life living in northern Utah. I live about 5 minutes from the mouth of the canyon, and I love spending time hiking, skiing, and camping in the beautiful mountains with my family. I'm the oldest of four kids, and my three younger siblings are my very best friends. I'm currently a sophomore in college and totally LOVING it. Music has always been an important part of my life. I grew up playing and studying the piano really seriously, but now I just play for pleasure any chance I get because music makes me soooo happy! I love being outside, trying new foods, pumpkin EVERYTHING in the fall, spending time with friends and family, and learning new things!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because living the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me so much happiness! As I pray to my Heavenly Father, have faith in Jesus Christ, read God's word including the Book of Mormon, and follow God's commandments, I feel such a peace that can't be replicated in any other way. I know that I have a Heavenly Father and Savior who love me infinitely, that this life is not the end, and that families can be together forever.

How I live my faith

My faith is central in my life. My daily habits of scripture study and prayer help me feel close to my Heavenly Father and inspire me to be a little better every day. A unique benefit my faith also gives me is a network of brothers and sisters around the world and a strong support system wherever I go. It gives me the opportunity to love and serve as Jesus Christ did as well as the blessing of being the recipient of such Christ-like service.
