Hi I'm Mady

I play the cello. I love movies (specifically Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings). I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old, and attend BYU. I love to read, listen to music, play the piano and cello, and watch movies. I am studying Microbiology at BYU and hope to someday find a cure to a disease! I have 4 siblings and a nephew who is the light of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. From the time I was young, I was taught the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a teenager, I began to have questions about the LDS church, why I was a member, if it is truly the "one true church," and if all that I had been taught was true. I began to study the doctrines of the LDS church seriously and to find answers to my questions. I sincerely read the Book of Mormon to search for answers. As I did this, I found answers to my questions. I gained a knowledge of the principles of the gospel, and of all that I had been taught. By living the gospel, I have so much more joy than I could have ever imagined. I love my life, and I love the gospel of Jesus Christ! I know with everything I am that the LDS church is true.

How I live my faith

At the moment I am preparing to go on a mission. I have a call to serve in Natal, Brazil for 18 months. I will travel to Brazil where I will learn to speak Portuguese in order to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. I try my best to serve others daily as well as be an example of Jesus Christ in all I do.
