Hi I'm Maddi Hazen

I grew up in Boise, Idaho and joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 18. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle child of three. I have an older sister who is 21 and a younger brother who is 3, I am 19. My parents were divorced when I was nine years old and I grew up moving back and fourth between homes. I never knew what I was missing in life until I discovered the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have tried to live the commandments and held true to the faith ever since I was baptized. I just finished my first year of college studying public health and am about to leave on an 18 month LDS mission. I love hiking, skiing and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have seen personally the happiness this gospel can and has bought to my life. This gospel gives my life direction and purpose. I know that our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ live. And I know that they know and love each and everyone of us so, very much. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and that he restored the church this day. I know the Book of Mormon is true. And I most definitely know that this is the true church on this earth today.

How I live my faith

Everyday I strive to live a better life and to follow in the footsteps of Christ. I know that if I keep the commandments and continue to try to be better I will be blessed and in turn have a happier more fulfilling life. I am currently a temple ordinance worker and will soon be set apart as a full time missionary.
