Hi I'm Amanda

I am a security guard for the US Army, I love country music and whatever is playing on the radio. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a daughter, a sister, a wife and a mother. I work full time and attend a university in Missouri. I scrapbook and love to change things in my house. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I did not grow up in the church, or any church for that matter. I was introduced to the LDS church when I met my now husband when I was 21. After my time in the Navy I moved to Missouri and started going to church with my Husband as a visitor and have continued to go for 9 months. I took a break to get the wildness out of my system before making the leap of faith into baptism. I have met with about 16 missionaries before I was convinced to make this commitment. Before hand I had to quite smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, coffee and black teas. It was hard, but totally worth it. I made this decision not for my husband or my son, but for myself. I knew becoming a member of the LDS church I would be happier in life and could recieve more blessings for it.

How I live my faith

 I have a job within our church, and it is to teach the youth about the gospel and instill basic principles in them. The group of children i teach are 3 years old, a very important time in theirs lives and a great age to start learning about the gospel. It is one of the most rewarding things i have ever done. I love my visiting teachers, they are two women that come to my home and bring a message from the chrurches magazine called The Ensign. They do not just spread the gospel, these women truly care about me and my needs as a sister of the church.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Amanda
The Word of Wisdom is a revelation from the prophet Joseph Smith concerning the use of tobacco. It was revealed to him that the use of these tobacco products, wine strong and hot drinks is not good. However the herbs, fruit, meat and grain are for the use of man and animals. Show more Show less
