Hi I'm Amanda

I am from Utah. I am a realist. I play basketball. I am currently finishing college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a free spirit. I can be very shy, but I do my best not to be, and I force myself to do things I normally wouldn't and get to know everyone because I truly do want to! I grew up playing basketball, and ended up playing for a college in Virginia. I served a full time mission in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, and loved getting to know the culture in Brazil and I surprised myself and fell in love with their food. I love my family more than anything! I enjoy listening to music and watching movies. I am a very simple person, with strong opinions but simple ones that makes sense. I am a realist but try my best to put a positive spin on everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a family that already belonged to the church. I grew up kicking and punching against it in my own way, but I was always in it because of my parents and siblings. The true question is "now that I am older why do I continue to be a Mormon"? It's simple...I can't deny that this church is Christ's church, and I decided to find out for myself, not just do something because my family did it. I studied the gospel, Book of Mormon, Bible, etc. again and again, and it all makes sense when put all together, being as realistic as I am, I came to the conclusion that it can't not be true. I am a normal human being that makes mistakes as does everyone, and because of Christ and his church that he restored I have been given the opportunity to be who I was sent here to be and I know that I can be with my family forever. Can't get much better than that!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. I am not a "showy" person, nor want to be. Like I already mentioned I served a full time mission for the church in Brazil. As of right now I am a Gospel Doctrine teacher, AKA...I teach the adults of the church doctrines that we believe out of scripture. I have worked with the youth groups a lot, and before I left on my mission I worked with the children of the church and taught them. I enjoy to make others happy, and hope that in my presence they can feel Christ's love for them!
