Hi I'm Mariah Madsen

I'm a writer. I'm an artist. I'm serving in the Canada Winnipeg mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading and writing fictional novels. I play violin and piano and love camping and kayaking with my family. When I return from my mission, I plan on studying to become an animator.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and so I took many aspects of it for granted. But as I got older, I began to realize just how important God and Jesus Christ are in my life. I can feel their love for me, and their desire for me to do the best I can, as well as their willingness to help me. It's this knowledge that God and Jesus Christ love me that has gotten me as far as I am, and that gives me the hope I need to keep trying.

How I live my faith

As a teenager, I held various leadership roles with the group of girls my age. I helped plan our weekly activities and made sure every girl felt included. I also had a role in helping the youth learn how to complete their family pedigree charts and find work to do for their ancestors. I have three younger sisters, and I try to be a good example to them to help them build their own faith and testimony.
