Hi I'm Amanda

I 'm a lover of cookie dough. I laugh at random things. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in central California. I am currently serving a mission in St. George, Utah till March 2011. At college I was studying to be an Elementary teacher because of my love for teaching children. I also love to teach gymnastics and dance. Being a Mormon has changed my life...it's not just my religion...it's my lifestyle.

Why I am a Mormon

Having grown up with the gospel in my life, I wanted to make my own choices and live my own life. While I was in high school, I made some decisions that took me away from the standards of the church. After a few years of doing my own thing, I realized I was not happy with what I was doing. I began to attend church again, read my scriptures and pray. This was a pivotal point in my life because I sincerely asked God what He wanted me to do with my life. A very distinct answer came that I needed to align myself back with the principles of the gospel. Once I changed my life around, I was so happy! I knew that this decision would forever bless my life. I was guided to know what college to attend, where to live and who I should affiliate myself with. All of these things played an important role in deciding to serve an 18 month mission. And when my mission does end, I will still have the desire to teach about these truths. This isn't just a phase in my life- it's forever. I'm a Mormon because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission in St. George, Utah. I love teaching others about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that in order to live my faith I need to show it in my example. My parents always taught me that "actions speak louder than words." I know that what we do and say reflects back upon our commitment to follow Christ and His teachings. I love attending church services on Sundays! I continue to read from the Bible and the Book of Mormon each day to strengthen my knowledge of Jesus Christ. I also pray continually throughout the day whether out loud or in my heart because I know I can't be here on this earth alone without help from God.
