Hi I'm Amanda

I love to sing.I love the rain and ocean. I love sweets and smiles. I'm a missionary in Taiwan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love singing. My dad taught me to sing when I was young. I also love to look at the ocean. It's one of the most beautiful things in the world. I love spending time with my friends. I went to college and got my associates degree with a cluster in vocal performance. Now I am serving a mission in Taiwan Taichung. It is an amazing opportunity to help others learn about Christ and this gospel. I love to swing dance and talk with my family. I think that developing relationships with people we know is important, and I think developing a relationship with Heavenly father is even more important. I love to have fun and smile. I think in every situation you can find something to smile about. Every single day I try to smile and find joy in everything I am doing. I love pets especially cats, but I haven't had one in awhile. I think that kids are adorable and that they can bring joy and light to you if you listen to what they say. I love listening to music and reading books. I also love the sound the rain makes on any covering, a hoodie, an umbrella, a roof. I love the simple things in life like looking at the stars, watching a meteor shower, or just driving up a mountain and looking at the view. There are so many beautiful things that we have, I love looking at them all and finding the joy that it brings.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converts and raised my family in the gospel. I grew up being taught about the church and I followed it because that is what I was supposed to do. But one thing that I learned on my own is that Heavenly Father loves me. It is extremely personal to me, to know that he loves me. It also helps me to know just how much he loves each and every one of us. I know how much he sacrificed for us and I know how much Christ did for me personally. I know that they love me and every person that I meet. I know that this church is theirs and that it is true. I know that the Savior has helped me personally in many ways, and I want to help others become happier with His help. I know that sharing this gospel is one of the best things that I can do in my life. I couldn't be happier doing anything else at this time in my life. I know that the Atonement has changed my life and I know it can change your life too. There is no better feeling than to know that every day you can try harder than the day before to be better and be more like the person you want to be. I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I could have many times in my life chosen a different path to travel. But I knew that this gospel brings us the most happiness in this life and the life to come. I know that I am the person I am today because of this gospel. It helps me to become who I want to be and It helps me to have love joy and courage in myself. I know that because I am a mormon, I am the person I am today.

How I live my faith

I was the person who leads the music at church, and I also taugh lessons during the second hour of church. I was not very confident in my teaching but I try to do my best. It is a wonderful challenge. I try to be an example to those around me and do good deeds. Mostly I strive every day to do something good and make Heavenly Father proud. I'm currently serving a mission in Taiwan and I am excited to be able to every day be helping people to learn more about this gospel and how they can be with their families forever. I also am so excited to invite people to learn about and use our Savior's Atonement. I try to help others see the change that His atonement has made in my life, and to see the joy that it brings to me. I know that Christ has helped me change so much about myself and I want others to have the chance to use the atonement to become the person that they really want to be. I am working on writing to as many of my friends as possible while I am in Taiwan to let them know that I am thinking of them. I think it is important to just share the love that you have for people. Let everyone you meet know of the love that you have for them. Because this gospel is about joy. This gospel is a gospel of love. Everyone deserves this gospel in this life. So take a step and share it with someone around you. It will strengthen your testimony and possibly just lift them.
