I'm Madison. I'm here to change the world.

When my Dad told me to shoot for the stars, I took it quite literally. I express my greatest standard like this: making the world a better place by inspiring people to fall more in love with Jesus.

By My Bedside. Things that are by my bedside are things that I value, things that are close to me, and things that I pay attention to and enjoy. We're not just talking physically on my bedside table - if we were, we would have a VERY messy collection of bobby pins and 3 scented candles on our hands. My bedside table is a spot of happiness and a provoker of endless pondering, a place that is my own and in the hands of my Creator at the same time.

I'm an 18 y/o millenial, I live in the New Zealand (the same hemisphere as the Hemsworth brothers, you can gush all you want now), I was born a writer (proof: the online Thesaurus is my most frequently visited webpage), and Christmas mince pies are my favourite food (can we just eat them all year round, sigh).

Something I think about a lot: nothing you do in this world will matter unless it is about loving God and loving people.

And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!
~Dr Seuss "Oh The Places You'll Go"

*My dream is to have a book published. I write all the time, and I know that dreams come true, but if you're a publisher that would be interested in speeding up the process, then feel free to flick me an email at: bymybedside@gmail.com. Thank you!
