Hi I'm Amanda

I'm a college student studying to be a teacher. I love the great outdoors, beaches, trying new things and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a currently studying to be a teacher but I have not always wanted to teach. When I was 14 I thought that working in the medical field was my "calling" but when i was 19 discovered that blood and guts really wasn't my thing. I've always loved kids so I switched degrees. I love helping people with all my heart and spending time with my family and friends. I;m a nature lovers I love to go on hiking and being at the beach! Let's face it Life gets busy, thing don't go right and life is sometimes see too stressful or hard to bare. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints has been one of the biggest blessing of my life, it keeps me focused on the important things and the truths I learn in church bring me aid and comfort when things get hard and I feel like I can't keep juggling all the things in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that has chosen to be LDS, so yea I was raised with under the belief of the church but as I have grown old I have had to decide whether or not what I have been taught by my family are true and I can honestly and full heartily say yes they are, i believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, it has taught me lessons that I could have learned no where else, and helped me grow closer to my Heavenly father. I believe in the power of Pray, when I pray my entire heart is in that prayer and i know i my heavenly father is listening I can feel him listening and i can feel the Holy ghost given me the greatest comfort when i pray. There have been times in my life when i fall to my knees and I cry in pray and it is only while I am praying that I start to feel comfort and stop crying, although the reason why I'm crying hasn't gonna away i feel better like I know i will be guided and will have help. I know Joesph Smith is and was a true Prophet of the Lord and and restored the true gospel to the earth when i learn more about him, his life and his teachings i realize the trials and suffering he experienced to bring forth the Book of Mormon and start the church it fills my heart. I have come to learn and know that the principle and teaching of the church are true, they are there for me. I am not the kind of person who like to be told what to do and be controlled and I have chosen this faith, i have a testimony of this church and I know its true.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is through my everyday actions, I try my best to follow the Commandments, I read my scriptures, pray everyday and I try to be like Christ and treat other as children of God. I love to help people; I believe in the difference one person can make and that God's language a good majority of the time is people. No matter what happened during the day if i have been able to help at least one person, its been a good day.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Amanda
No, we do not worship Joesph Smith. the only beings we worship are God and Jesus Christ. Joesph smith was a prophet of the Lord, we respect him and acknowledge him as an instrument in the hands of God. Show more Show less
