Hi I'm Amanda Nicole

I am a Mormon!

About Me

For now, its just me, Amanda. Born and raise in a small town in Utah. I'm an adventure junky. I love to be spontaneous. My love for pizza is unhealthy. I come off shy at first but once you get to know me, I never stop talking. Or singing. I love to belt Broadway songs any chance I get. I'm starting my degree at UVU in communications this fall which I am beyond excited for. However, the most important thing you will ever know about me is that I love being a Mormon. If I could rate from 1-10 on how happy being a Mormon has made me, I would give it a solid 10! I've been a member my whole life and can not imagine what my life would be without it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the happiness it brings in my life. I feel the happiest when I'm serving others, doing what is right, and striving to be like my Savior. The Church gives my life purpose, because I know I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, and he has a plan for me here on earth. I know I'll have a chance to be like him someday. The knowledge of the gospel helps me know right from wrong, and gives me the strength I need to face the challenges and choices in this life. I know where I'm going when I died, and that my family can be together for eternity, because of the blessings of the temples. The principles of the LDS church are true! I feel whole and complete because of this knowledge it provides!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of what I believe, in what I do and say. I try to always reflect the light of Christ by living my standards, serving others, simply smiling, and try to be optimistic about life. I want people to look at me, and see the joy that comes from being a disciple of Jesus Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Amanda Nicole
One way that I have personally come to know my Heavenly Father is through prayer. I mean, how great is it to know that the greatest being in the universe is listening to you and that you can speak to Him at any time, anywhere. Whenever I talk to my Heavenly Father it is like I am talking to a close friend. I can recall times in my life where I wasn't sure if He was there, that He could hear me or even would want to hear what I had to say. But, when sincerely prayed to feel assurance that He was there and to be able to feel His love for me, I have always received an answer. If you are not sure if you Heavenly Father is there or is listening to your prayers, pray for assurance and love! He will answer you! :) In James 1:5 it states "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." Show more Show less
