Hi I'm Amria

I was born in Canada. I want to make people smile. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to read, write, and sing. I've lived in two countries and four different states, and I've moved a total of 16 times in my life. I love animals and children; they make me smile. I have six siblings and three nephews that I love dearly! I am currently serving my mission in the Santa Rosa, Ca mission and it is the best experience ever!!! I find great peace and joy in my life when I spend time with my family and take time to sit down and read the scriptures. This gospel is the most incredible thing in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I've been a Mormon my whole life. I was born into the church, with strong parents. It's all I had ever known as a kid. When you are born into the church you get baptized when you are eight year old. I remember being a little seven year old and going to one of my friends baptisms and his brother spoke before my friend was actually baptized. His brother said that before he had gotten baptized he wasn't sure if the gospel was true and he had prayed to Heavenly Father and asked him if the gospel was true and if he should be baptized and he got his answer that yes he should. That was really weird to me because to me it was the obvious choice. You turn eight, you get baptized, that's how it worked. But I realized that I wanted to know for myself too. So the next Sunday during sacrament meeting I bowed my head and I asked Heavenly Father if the church was true. I looked up and everyone in the room was glowing. It was a soft, beautiful white light that seemed to be shining from within everyone. I knew that it was Heavenly Father's way of telling me that yes, it was true. Ever since that day I have had a firm testimony in the church. The thing about a testimony though is that you have to nurture it. So I have continued praying, going to church, living the gospel standards, and doing everything that Heavenly Father has asked me to do. And when I do all those things I am happy. Everyone makes mistakes and I am definitely included in that category, but because I have the gospel I know I can repent and try again and become better. I know, without a doubt, that this gospel is true. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and that Christ atoned for my sins. I know that through the Holy Ghost I can talk to them and they in turn can talk to me and answer my prayers. I love being a Mormon. I love this gospel.

How I live my faith

Living my faith for me means that I do my best to exemplify Christ in my actions. I am not perfect, but I always try to smile, be helpful to all those I come in contact with, and not be judgmental. I go to my ward every Sunday where I am able to learn about doctrines of the gospel from the other ward members and the spirit that I feel when I listen to their teachings. Reading the scriptures is a wonderful way to bring the spirit into my daily life and I learn so much from them. I also love family home evening, which is where my family all gets together on Monday night and we sing songs, have a lesson, and grow closer together by learning about Christ as a family. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to spread the gospel to all of Heavenly Father's children. I love sharing my testimony and experiences because the more I testify of my knowledge that this church is true the happier I become. I hope to spread this glorious gospel to all of the people in my mission that I encounter!
