Hi I'm Amanda

I'm an artist, I'm a Doctor Who nut, and Japanese dramas make my bad days good. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm theatrical, but I mostly like make up. I plan on going to a major makeup school after my mission. I'm artistic so that's one of the ways I like to express myself. I also draw whatever comes to my mind and I write lots of random stories(none of which are finished). I'm a little bit country and a little bit city. I'm fun loving and very active. A lot of times I find myself up in the mountains camping and hiking and riding horses. I love those times because they're the most serene and away from the world. I love to just get away from all of the crazyness around me and the mountains feel just like home. There's so much beauty in them, I often just stare at the scenery and wonder at the amazing work that God has done and the beauty he's given us to enjoy. Right now, I'm serving a full-time mission in California and love sharing the restored gospel with anyone who will listen.I love the Book of Mormon and the many answers I have found to my questions within its pages. There have been many hard times and everytime I don't think I can make it through, all I have to do is pray and read the Book of Mormon and I feel the comfort and guidance of the holy ghost. It has helped me through more than I thought I ever deserved. I will talk anyone's ear off about my love for the church as well as Doctor Who and fantasy books. I'm a nerd just as much as I'm a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been lost for a long time and when I really needed guidance all I had to do was open my scriptures. I believe with all my heart that God is watching out for us all the time and he doesn't want any of us to fail. We go through trials, but we also grow through trials. God has given us commandments that are there to help us through those. When I finally remembered those comandments and began following them again and asking for help God was there to help me through my struggles. I know that the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ because every time I'm doubting or have questions when I turn to that book I find my answers. I know that this church is the true church. I love it with all my heart, and I don't know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission to share the gospel with everyone I meet. I want everyone to know the happiness I feel when I have the gospel in my life. People say that Mormons are always so smiley, the reason why is because we know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and He has a wonderful plan to bring us all home to him and for our families to be together forever. That knowledge makes ME smile and I want everyone else to know that too. I want the WHOLE world to be smiley! That is how I live my faith, I share it with everyone I see!
