Hi I'm Amanda

I'm a really short girl with a contagious smile who runs marathons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the only girl in my family. If you know any 'only girls' then you already know a little about my personality. I grew up in the semi-rural city of Pocatello Idaho, technically in the city, but not too far away from the potato farms. Spent our childhood playing back yard baseball, hide and seek, and hunting for grass hoppers. Through out high school I sang in all the choirs and musicals, participated in the service club and student government, and ran cross country. I love running!! My dad and I are the ultimate running buddies, we're on marathon number 2 and still going! I past year have been attending college at Utah State University in Logan Utah, and I love it!! Unfortunately I am one of those people who can't make up their mind, so I've just barely declared a major. Currently I'm studying Communications with a minor in Business. Hopefully it's what I really want to do!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. As I actively participate in my church I feel the love of God. Through this church I have come to know Him and feel his love for me and for others.

How I live my faith

As a member of this church I have had many opportunities to serve. Currently I am serving as a teacher in our nursery . I teach the children ages 18 months to 3 years. We learn about together we learn about being kind to others, that Jesus loves us, and many other simple truths. I will soon have the opportunity to serve as a missionary for my church. As a missionary I will dedicate a year and a half of my time to sharing my beliefs with others. I will be serving in and around Athens Georgia, USA. I can't wait to get to know the people of Georgia through service.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries teach about the purpose of life: Who we are, Why we are here, Where we came from, and Where we're going. Missionaries teach that God is our loving Heavenly Father. They teach to strengthen all people's belief in Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
