Hi I'm Maddy Smith

I'm orignially from Arizona but now I'm a missionary in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square mission from Sept. 2016-March 2018.

About Me

I graduated high school in 2015 and went to community college for a year. I was a long high and triple jumper on the track team and towards the end of the season they asked me to train for the heptathlon. I played, and love to play, all different kinds of sports and hope someday to be a dietitian and a personal trainer. Someday I'll live in southern California just to surf and be a beach bum.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but my true testimony and faith came from trials I faced in high school. Simply put, I was lost. Finally I was saved by the power of the Atonement, prayer, and pure love of Christ. This gospel is the only thing that pulls me up when I am sinking and I know that without it, I would not be standing here on this earth today. As members we've promised to not only live the gospel, but share the gospel, that's why I've finally chosen to serve a mission.

How I live my faith

I've never been the best at living my faith. As a missionary I've come to really know what it means to not only live the gospel, but to love the gospel. I love being a missionary, waking up every morning with the privilege of wearing the Saviors name next to mine has come to be one of my greatest blessings. I haven't always been the best disciple of Christ, nor will I be in this life, but I'll never stop trying.
