Hi I'm Amanda

I'm from a teeny town in Utah. I love singing, traveling, and clothing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young woman going through a time of many choices. I'm not always right, but I'm always right where I need to be. I love singing with all my soul, almost as much as I love my many nieces and nephews. I love, love, love kids. I'm thinking about going to school to become a teacher. I also really love fashion, though, so I might go to school for that, too. One day I hope to travel to Italy and study there.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior. That's really all there is to it. I love him and I want to follow him so one day I can be just like him, and that is what being LDS does for me. It brings me even closer to Him. Plus, the priesthood is an amazing blessing that I could not live without.

How I live my faith

I do my best to have charity. Charity and respect to me are the core of all good things. My love for my Savior and his children are what motivate me to keep going in the gospel. I want the Lord to know I love him, and I want him to proud of me when I return to him, so I do my best; that way, when I go home, he can say, "You did it! Good job!"

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Amanda
Mormon women are just like all the other women in the world -- just Mormon. Mormons believe in total equality between men and women. Some people feel that because the responsibilities each sex has is different, there is inequality, but that isn't true. Just because one of your parents works and the other doesn't, does that make them unequal? Absolutley not. There are two separate organizations in the church for men and women and both are equally important. They just do different things. Women even vote in congregational meetings. Mormon women go shopping, work, serve missions, the list goes on. We're quite normal really. :) Show more Show less
