Hi I'm Amanda

I'm a wife and a mother of 4 children.

About Me

I am a wife. I am a mother of 3 girls and a little boy. I love music, especially singing. I enjoy spending time with my family. My hobbies include cake decorating and writing songs, when I'm not ferrying our children to their many commitments and school, or cleaning, or chasing our runaway dog, feeding the chickens etc. I work with my husband in our printing business. I enjoy socialising with other Mums and kids. My life is quite pleasantly common and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

By living the teachings of Jesus Christ the best I can and dedicating time to prayer and scripture study I have felt closer to Jesus Christ and felt him lead me. I took a challenge around 20 years ago to 'experiment' by reading the Book of Mormon and praying daily, and through doing that I felt a greater closeness to Jesus Christ and knew that I was doing what he would want me to do. I still feel that same assurance when I live the gospel the way it has been restored through The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know that God hears our prayers and he answers them through the Holy Ghost. Through feelings of peace and comfort, and love and reassurance.

How I live my faith

I believe that being involved in the community, helping at the school, raising my children to become valuable members of society are all part of living my faith among many other things. Everything I do is somewhat related to the way I live my faith. I have been involved in many different assignments within church (from music leader to sunday school teacher and youth leader, among others) and see them as an opportunity to serve the Lord and become a better person. I pray daily to seek the guidance and will of my Heavenly Father and read the scriptures to become closer to Him.
