Hi I'm Madelyn

I grew up in Utah, I play the piano and have been singing for 7+ years. I'm going to BYU Provo studing Biology, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Madelyn, I was born in the church and have lived my whole life in Utah. I was apart of the Utah Valley Children's choir for 7 years and would go on annual choir tours around the United states every summer and sing in our church buildings praises and hymns for the Lord. I have been playing the piano since I was eight, I ran track and cross country in High School. I would run the distance races, I wasn't necessarily fast, but I had fun doing it! I love animals and want to grow up and work in a career where I can help them, such as a wildlife rehabilitator. And I love this gospel and love to talk about it too!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in this church, leaning on my parents testimony as a child. Once I got older and knew that I needed to discover for myself and if this is what I wanted to be apart of the rest of my life. My mom read the Book of Mormon with me because I had waited to long to discover my own testimony, and had less and less desire to build one. My mom would read with me every night and when I finished I knelt down and prayed, and from that moment on I had developed my own testimony. It was little, but very strong and ready to grow. I changed my life and became a much happier person, and to this day I go back to that experience to help boost my testimony when it is low.

How I live my faith

I serve those around me and those in my town, I am always willing to lend an ear, and help out when needed. I help strengthen my friends and those around me by keeping my testimony strong, and through my example. Through my past experiences I am able to help others get through hard times, and to help them see the good in what is going on in their life. I help them to recognize all those things that they are thankful for and love, all the people in their lives that have helped them, and I have just been the shoulder to cry on, many times. I strive to help those who stand in need of comfort, and who just need a friend, and someone to listen to them.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

The main thing that confirms that there is a God of this world is the beauty of it. The world is full of so many amazing and complex things that simply could not have been created by the mere man. These amazing creations didn't just come by chance, they were given to us and placed on this earth to be enjoyed and loved. Show more Show less
