Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up in Idaho. I like to explore the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a divorced home, by a single mother. My parents got divorced when I was about a year and a half old. I am a student at Brigham Young University of Idaho. I am studying Child Development, which I dream of one day volunteering in a orphanage. I love children and there pure honesty. I believe that children are precious in the sight of God. Therefore I want to love and cherish little children as God does.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon today because of my mom. She has taught me how to live the gospel no matter where you are at in your life. I know that I would not be where I am today if it weren't for her. She has taught me to trust in the Lord. It was because of her allowing me to use my agency that I am a member of the Church. She has made me gain my own testimony, through allowing me to use my agency in doing so. I know that this Church is true. I know that Jesus Christ is the son of God and that He came down to earth and suffered for me in Gethsemane, so that I will be able to return to my Father in Heaven again someday. I know that because of Jesus Christ and His atonement, I am able to repent and be forgiven of my sins. I know that Christ knows me individually and He knows my weaknesses and strengths, for He experienced them. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God, he was to restore this church back on the earth again through the help of God. I know that God continues to call prophets to lead and guide this church, that the prophet is called of God. He is an instrument in Gods hand. I know these things to be true because of the love of God. For I have come to know these things through much prayer and study.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by preparing to serve a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. I am preparing to serve in the Albuquerque, New Mexico mission. Where I will teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am strengthening my testimony of Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ.
