Hi I'm Amanda Jo Parker

I was born in SC, raised most of my childhood in Utah, and currently living in Washington. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Amanda! I'm 29 years old and am a wife and mother of two beautiful daughters. I love being a stay-at-home mom and wouldn't change it. I enjoy watching and playing sports, being active with exercise, being outside doing pretty much anything, love doing crafts when I have time and pretty much anything that I can do with my family! They're my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and was baptized when I was 8 years old. I'm grateful I made the choice then to be baptized and make covenants to my Heavenly Father. I'm so grateful my parents, especially my mom, who raised me in the church! I am always striving to become more like Christ and coming unto him. He has blessed me in my life in so many ways! I love the relationship I have with my Savior and I love the feeling I get being close to Him. I KNOW that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the TRUE church and I have felt the assurance through my personal prayers and the Holy Ghost. I would never doubt or leave the church because of the foundation I have built and continue to build.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving with the Young Women of our ward-mostly with 14 & 15 year olds. I love teaching them principles and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to see their friendships grow and their testimony of our Savior. I think it's important to show Christ like attributes to everyone and that through me others can see the joy of having the gospel in their life.
