Hi I'm Madilyn Hipps

I'm a native of Arizona. I'm a vocalist. I am preparing to serve in the California, Ventura Mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a young adult currently preparing to serve a mission in California. I love to compete in beauty pageants and perform. Something that truly brings me happiness is serving others, I have traveled to Bogotá, Colombia on a music service mission and we took 28 boxes of school supplies to hundreds of kids.

Why I am a Mormon

Without a loving Heavenly Father and Mother who gave up their only son, Jesus Christ, I am nothing. The knowledge I have of Christ's atonement, how he died on a cross so I can have comfort and mercy is what gets me up every day. I have spent many of days depressed because I didn't feel like my life had a purpose and I didn't feel like anyone knew what I was going through. No one on this earth knows exactly what you are going through, only our loving brother Jesus Christ. He suffered so I can have a friend when life is crappy. Heavenly Father loves us enough to send a young boy with little to no education to have doubts and concerns about his eternal salvation, about religion. I know he translated some brass plates he found on a hill, with the help of God, so that we could have revelation and guidance in our very hard lives.

How I live my faith

In my young singles adult ward, I am the activities co-chair. I love being able to plan fun activities for everyone to get to know each other better. I strongly believe in the power of visiting teaching, it has changed my life and I have made some dear friends from fulfilling my responsibilities.
