Hi I'm Amelia

This Idaho girl is now headed to Houston on a mission. I am an American Girl that never wants to leave. I am a mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho. My family has always been my biggest support. I am the second of five children and the first of two girls. I am a student at a university, but put my education on hold to serve as a missionary for the Lord for eighteen months. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My new found love is ultimate frisbee with my freinds. In the summer,one of my favorite activies is heading to lake with my family to spend some time boating. I enjoy wakebarding and being in the sun. Someday I hope to have a family forever. I know that this is the most important goal in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon, becuase this I know who I am. I know that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father who loves me. He loves me know much that he provided a way for me to return to him. I have a strong testimony of my savior Jesus Christ. He is my savior and redeemer. He has made it possible to return to him. I am forever grateful for this precious gift from God. I have felt the influence of the Holy Ghost many times in my life. He is real and a part of who I am. He guides me and helps me to make correct choices in my life. I have been a member of this church my whole life, but everyday learn more and more about it and more about myself as a daughter of God. I love this gospel, I love The Book of Mormon, and I love the divine worth that I have and the knowledge to know who I am.

How I live my faith

Life is all about attitude. Being a mormon is about happiness and finding simple joy in life. I strive everyday to keep a positive attitude. I know that my life is happy becuase of my savior and my blessings from him. I strive to be a person that he would be proud of. I hope that when people see me they know what I stand for and who I represent. Smile. Life is Good. I am currently serving as a missionary for the church. I put 18 months of my life on hold to share the gospel with the people in Houston Texas. I am teaching people that we have the fullness of this gospel restorned once again. The same church that was on the earth when Christ established it. When I was younger I participated in the Youth program of the church. The youth program is so inspired. It was during those years that my testimony of my savior increased. I truely learned who I was as a daughter of my Heavenly Father, which set the stage for the rest of my life.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I know for myself that this is the true church of Christ. I have found out for myself through prayer and a confirming witness from the Holy Ghost. I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ restored to this earth through Joseph Smith Show more Show less

What is faith?

To me, faith has two parts... Faith is a belief. A belief that something good is going to happen or that something is true. The second part is the action. Faith is a principle of action. When we have a belief we need to act. We need to do something about it. Faith without works is dead so we need to show our faith. We cannot just believe we are saved. We need to work for our salvation. If we truly do want to follow Christ we need to be baptized by someone holding the proper authority of God. Faith starts with a desire to know. When we have that desire we can nourish it until it becomes a testimony. It is a lifelong process. We need to continually nourish and increase our faith. Show more Show less
