Kelsey Wilding: Hi, today we are talking with Ann Madsen. It’s nice to meet you Ann. We’re going to get to know a little bit about her, so can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Ann Madsen: I’m eighty-five years old. My greatest accomplishment is that I have four children, sixteen grandchildren, and forty-one, going on forty-two great grandchildren. I’ve loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ since I first got a testimony of the Book of Mormon when I was thirteen years old. I’ve never been able to get enough of it since then. I’ve been ever since then trying to find out more and more and more, and I found out that you can never find the depths of the whole thing. I’m slightly disabled, but I’ve accommodated that. I’ll be teaching a class on Monday, in Isaiah. And that’s…I love Isaiah, and I love students and putting those two together makes me very happy. My husband died nine years ago. I thought at that time that that eternal companionship was being at least postponed a little while and I realized that I could be happy, lonely, but happy, and I am happy. The Gospel makes us happy and that’s why I love to teach the Gospel.
