Hi I'm Sister Amanda Bria

Called to Serve in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission November 2016 - May 2018

About Me

A current sophomore at Brigham Young University - Idaho taking a break to serve a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Colorado Springs, Colorado! I love to sing, dance, play piano and guitar, shop, and spend time with my friends and family!

Why I am a Mormon

Simply because I love it. This church teaches such true principles and gives me a way to live my life to the fullest. I know that I am the best version of myself that I can be when I am living the commandments and the way that Heavenly Father has asked me to. His love and His plan for me have brought me so much happiness, more that I could have ever brought myself and I know that He truly loves me and loves all of us and that's what keeps me going through the trials life throws at me.

How I live my faith

This gospel is one of action! I try to be like Christ every day and show His love to those around me. I know that when we live this way, it helps others see His light in us, and that's how we can start conversations about His true gospel! I love missionary work and I love the ability to share His message throughout my life!

What is being a Mormon like?

Sister Amanda Bria
It's probably about the same as being apart of any other church or organization, although I think our community is something a lot of churches lack. We are all bonded together as a group of people who love our Savior, Jesus Christ and want to do the things he asks of us. It's a lifestyle that radiates joy! Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Sister Amanda Bria
The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets in the lands of the Americas. It's another testament of Jesus Christ and teaches principles similar to those in the Bible. It contains the record of when Jesus went to visit the people in the Americas after His resurrection in Jerusalem. It teaches us how we can continue to live like Jesus Christ and gives us personal guidance and warnings for our day specifically. It was translated by the prophet Joseph Smith after Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ visited Him in the Sacred Grove and initiated the beginning of the restoration of Christ's true gospel back on the earth.
