Hi I'm Amanda

I am a wife and a mother of seven. I teach middle school writing, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother. I have seven children, two daughters and five sons. My family is extremely important to me, and right now, caring for them is my hobby. When I experience down time, I enjoy reading and going out to movies and concerts. I also work outside the home as a teacher in a middle school.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my entire life. I was baptized when I was eight years old, but was fully converted to the gospel in my twenties when life hit me hard enough for me to realize that I needed help from a higher power to make it through difficult times. I'm grateful for trials in my life because I have become very close with my father in heaven and have learned a great deal. Being a member of the church and knowing the plan of salvation our Heavenly Father created for us is extremely important to me. I have a testimony that my Heavenly Father lives and loves me and that he has restored the fullness of the gospel in this time through our prophet Joseph Smith. I know Jesus Christ sacrificied his life that we may be forgiven of our sins and live again after death. I know that through the sealing powers of the priesthood, we can be with our families forever. I also have a knowledge that both the Bible and the Book of Mormon are the word of God and that we can receive answers to our prayers and guidance from our Heavenly Father by reading these works.

How I live my faith

I am president of the primary program, which encompasses the children from 18 months to eleven years of age, in my ward. I am priviledged to help ensure these children are being taught the gospel both through lessons and music. I am also visiting teacher, which allows me to get to know other women in my ward a little more personally and be there to help them when needed.
