Hi I'm Amanda

I am a Mormon!

About Me

Currently I'm in Chicago working in account management for a marketing firm. I enjoy traveling to see my family, playing the piano, dancing, serving in the church and meeting new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are Mormon so I grew up in a home where we prayed together daily, attended church meetings together, participated in weekly family activities, and were taught the importance of strengthening our knowledge of Jesus Christ on a daily bases. I grew up in a community where I had the opportunity to talk about my beliefs often. I remember hearing other Mormons share their testimonies about coming to know the church was true. When I was in the 8th grade, I knelt beside my bed and took the challenge in the Book of Mormon to ask Heavenly Father if the things I had been taught by my parents and church leaders were true. I remember a feeling of peace coming to my mind and a confirmation that I already knew it was true and that I should continue studying the principles of the gospel and obeying the commandments. On my mission in Argentina, my testimony continued to grow as I saw others study the gospel and pray to know if the things we were teaching as missionaries were true. Prayer continues to bring answers and personal revelation in my life as I kneel to Heavenly Father and I know He is aware of me.

How I live my faith

I'm a member of the Young Single Adult congregation and I was recently asked to play the piano for our Sunday church service. I always love having the opportunity to play the piano. I also work with the woman's organization and plan activities geared toward increasing unity within the organization. With so many young single adults moving in and out of the city, I also work with a welcome committee that strives to help new people feel a part of our congregation. I loved being a missionary in Argentina, and I've seen throughout my life that I feel the happiest when I'm serving others.
