Hi I'm Amanda Vallejo

I grew up in Utah,I love my family, love to laugh, love Sports, I'm a Mormon and I LOVE IT!

About Me

I have a family of 12, its a yours, mine, and our's kind of family. My dad passed away when i was 6, he was an amazing example to my family and I. My mom was a convert at the age of 14 so i had the great privilege of growing up in the church, which i'm very grateful for. I love to learn, love sports and love to cook, I spend most of my time with my family, they mean everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found out for myself that this is the only true church on this earth, the only way that we can return to our Father in Heaven, to live with him again. It is the only way that we can have an eternal family, I don't want to be separated from my family after death. I want to be with them after this life. With this plan that God has for us it teaches us how important family is and for me that is huge! I don't know "EVERYTHING" about the gospel of Jesus Christ but I do know Heavenly Father loves me and he has shown me over and over again how important i am to him. I know that Jesus Christ died for all us and suffered for all, to take upon himself all of our sins because he loves us, he wanted to open the gate for us to be able to return to him and God. We wouldn't be able to return to them without the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and I know that he was visited by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to restore the true Church on this earth, how do I know? because I've prayed about it, and it has been testified to me by the Holy Ghost that it was true. My testimony grows stronger and stronger every day that I live the gospel and I know that's exactly what Heavenly Father wants for all of his children. I make mistakes, I still repent every day. I'm not perfect and he's not asking us to be perfect, he's just asking us to try. I know this with all my heart and the only way you can know if this is the True is if you ask for yourself.

How I live my faith

We all have hard times in our life but looking back for me, those are the times that my faith had grown the most. I live my faith by following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ, by sharing with others how much the gospel has helped me in my life and how much it will help their's.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Amanda Vallejo
When you study the scriptures, your relationship with Heavenly Father will grow tremendously, your love and understanding of why our Savior Jesus Christ Is so important in our lives will enlighten your heart and mind. The scriptures tell us that the sole purpose of reading them is to know for ourselves that Jesus Is the Christ, that only through him can we live with our Father in heaven after this life, with both the Book of Mormon and the Bible we have the fullness of the gospel, which means we have the answers to every one of our questions right in our hands.
