Hi I'm Madeline

Born and raised in Idaho. I love cosmetology and a good laugh. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a 19 year old who is the oldest of 4 children and I am preparing to serve a mission in Tempe Arizona. I grew up playing soccer for 14 years, so if there is a street game or someone wanting to pass the ball around I'm your gal. I love food. One would be surprised at how much I can actually eat! Since I have been called to Arizona, I have a new obsession... Cacti. Once I return home I will fulfill my dreams of going to cosmetology school and hopefully opening up my own salon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon by my awesome mother who never failed to help me understand the gospel. It was clearly hard for my family because my father was not a member of the church until recently, but until that event occurred, I had my friends and family support me throughout my journey of understanding the gospel and coming to love it. I am Mormon because I have learned for myself that this gospel is true and I have found nothing but pure happiness in living the ways of Christ and striving to be more like him every day.

How I live my faith

I currently live my faith by preparing to serve a full-time mission. I leave for my mission on May 3rd, 2017 and I could not be more excited. Serving a mission has always been back in my mind but it was never made official until certain events occurred. One of the main reasons I want to serve a mission is because I know of the effect it leaves on ones life. In 2014 my dad was baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I want to go out and do as the missionaries who taught my dad did. Share the love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
