Hi I'm Maddie Bean

I love the outdoors, especially during the spring and summer! My family is amazing. I am a runner, a reader, and a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 20 year old sister missionary who loves running, biking and being with family. When I return home I will be attending Brigham Young University-Hawaii, majoring in Exercise Science. I hope to one day become a Pediatric Dentist and travel to volunteer medical care to those in need. I have three younger sisters and two loving parents. I love singing at the top of my lungs with the windows down and I don't care who hears. I dance before the day starts with a toothbrush in my mouth, it's a great way to start the day. I'm a Disney girl who loves the feeling of Main street over the rides, but I do love my high speed roller coasters. Food is incredible, I love to make it and eat it. Hot chocolate can be enjoyed both in hot and cold weather. I've traveled to Japan, Ireland, and Australia. I have a travel bug now! I graduated seminary and went to institute at school in Utah, and nowhere else do I feel more at home during the school year. I am a Mormon, and I love it and live to the best of my ability!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter Day Saint, because it brings me so much joy. I revel in the truth that my family will be together forever, both my current and future families. Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Father have blessed my life countless times. They lead and teach through church leaders, giving modern day revelation. This modern day revelation sets our church apart from others and is beyond helpful in our earthly time. I believe the church was restored through Joseph Smith and because of this we are able to practice this wonderful religion each Sunday, blessed with the opportunity to take the sacrament once a week.

How I live my faith

I am currently a sister missionary doing my best to learn and grow in the gospel alongside the people I serve. I am far from perfect and work hard to become like Christ everyday! I walk around the streets of Seattle Washington talking to as many many as God puts in my path. I talk to people about how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can and will bless their lives if they allow it to!

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Maddie Bean
President Thomas S Monson is an incredible prophet, he speaks eloquently and humorously. He has the spirit with him at all times and is a great example to this church and world. Show more Show less
