Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up in the south. I went to college in the West. I love to craft! Nursing is my passion. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have been a member of the church my entire life, but I learned the church was true for myself when I was 17. I am a semester and a half away from graduating nursing school! It is my passion! I love to do anything crafty. I also love to run and any other type of exercise! One day I will be able to play the piano. I love spending time with my husband and my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I realized the church was true when I was 17 years old. Before then, I just went through the motions. I was at EFY, which is a week long church program for teenagers, and my counselor challenged everyone to find out for themselves that the church was true. I prayed about it the night before and the entire next day I have an indescribable feeling and I just knew. Being a member of the church makes all the difference in my life. I couldn't imagine where I would be without it. The church brings me so much happiness because I know it is what Heavenly Father wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I am a mentor and teacher to girls ages 12-18 in my church. I am continually trying to make sure that I am being a good example for them to look up too. I dress modestly, refrain from bad language, follow the word of wisdom, and try my best to follow the rest of the commandments. Before I received my calling I did all of those things, but it was easier for me to slip. Now I realize how my actions can impact what others do or think of me. Reading my scriptures and saying my prayers helps me to choose the right daily.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Amanda
There are so many ways for you to come to know your Heavenly Father! You can talk with Him through prayer and ask him for reassurance and love, you can read the testimonies of his prophet and apostles, and you can keep His commandments. Your testimony of our Father in Heaven will grow as you pray, study the scriptures, and obey His commandments. Always remember to have faith in Heavenly Father, even through the tough times.
