Hi I'm Madeline Nelson

I am from Utah. I attend Snow College. I love my Savior and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an ambassador for the college I'm currently attending. I am studying Pre-med, but right now I am just doing my generals. I love to snowboard, golf and hike. I love living in Utah because I live right by the mountains, so I can go out and do what I love anytime.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel. It brings light and happiness to my life everyday. I know that I am a daughter of God and that he hears me and is mindful of me every second of the day. When I was in high school I got a concussion that was going to ruin my academic career, but through the power of the priesthood and Jesus Christ's atonement I was healed. I know with all my heart that Heavenly Father has a plan for us and that plan is happiness, everything he does for us is to make us happy. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and I am so grateful for his courage. I would not be the person I am without this gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that families are forever. I could not go on with this life not knowing that I can see my family again.

How I live my faith

I am a ward missionary for my YSA ward. We are currently teaching an inactive friend. In the past I was a primary teacher for the five year olds. I still love going back to my home ward and seeing my primary class. I have also participated in many leadership positions as a youth.

What is faith?

Faith is like a tiny seed that must be planted to bloom, but it takes time. It is believing in something like Christ and being obedient to his words with your actions. Show more Show less
