Hi I'm Amanda Jergensen McMinn

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a Brigham Young University graduate with a degree in Exercise Science. I am a stay-at-home Mom that cares for four wonderful children. I love to play volleyball and play board games with my kids. I like to play any sport, especially when it involves family time. I like to read, which is a new found hobby for me. I love to spend time with my husband whenever we can squeeze in a date night around six busy schedules!

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents were members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and when I was 8 years-old I decided to follow in their footsteps. My testimony of the church was all that I imagine I could have had at such a young age. Over the years that testimony was strengthened as I watched how my choices that were influenced by teachings that I learned on Sunday brought me happiness. I continued to be faithful and to follow the commandments of Jesus Christ. I know that because of these choices I have been blessed with happiness. Every trial that I face I turn to a loving Heavenly Father and try to do what Jesus Christ Himself would do. Although I am not perfect in doing this, when I do, I feel my Saviour's love and it brings me true happiness. Happiness that the world cannot give to me. Through all these experiences my testimony grows a little bit more each day. I am so grateful to be a member of Christ's church on this earth today, the church continues to teach me all that I need to know to return to my Father in Heaven one day.

How I live my faith

I try to volunteer as much time as possible at the elementary school where two of my children attend. I love teaching young children at church, but currently I am involved in the woman's organization at church. I am in charge of activities that bring the women together and strengthen their testimonies. I love to help others feel the love of our Saviour and help them to find hope and strength in Jesus Christ.
