Hi I'm Amanda

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

If you ask my friends to describe me in one word, they'd all probably say "Dr. Doolittle" or "zookeeper". I'm not an actual zookeeper and I cant really communicate with animals like Dr. D does, But I have an extreme love for animals. Ive had this love my entire life, and it will always be my first love. I do have a little zoo, two rabbits, a parakeet, two red ear sliders and a Betta. And to continue with my love for animals, Im currently working towards my animal science degree. Besides animals, I am a caregiver, I have an amazing boyfriend and mother, i love to participate in tthe arts, acting, singing (I have had the priviledge to work with Dick Van Dyke, who is amazing!), dancing and drawing, to knit and sew and most of all, read.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I always questioned whether or not God or Jesus existed. Going to church was a chore and I never understood what anyone said or preached. So, as time went on I started believeing no such being could exist. When the Sister Missionaries knocked on our door, I didn't want to listen, and that's how it was for a while, until I became friends with them and realized that what they were saying finally made sense to me. Questions I always had were answered and as time went on the more I began to realize that it was all truth, he really existed and he really still lives today, I have been a memeber for almost 8 years now and I don't know what my life would be like without this gospel. It is the one and only truth. He lives.

How I live my faith

There are so many ways that one can live their faith. So many different interpretations and ideas and methods. I honestly believe that i live my faith through myself. I have come to realize that without personal will power, one cannot obtain what she is searching for. I have an amazing mother, who is my best friend and guide. I have had the blessing of having a wonderful man in my life who loves me, respects me, helps me, encourages me and never leads me astray. I am surrounded by wonderful virtuous friends that live by the gospel and are examples of the Savior. I have leaders that love and guide me and counsel me in my times of need. And i have been blessed with the oppourtunity to use my talents in my calling as ward chorister. As I look back, all I can help think about how lucky I am to have the gospel in my life, I don't know where or who I would be without it, I'm happy today because I have the Lord, Jesus Christ in my life.
