Hi I'm Amanda Christiansen

I'm a reader, a writer, but not much of an arithmetic-er. My family are my best friends. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I've lived in Utah basically my whole life. In fact, I've lived in the same house since I started my second week of kindergarten. I love Utah! I'm the second oldest of five children who all love to play, tease, and goof-off with me. I started writing stories when I was in fifth grade and I haven't stopped! I am currently attending school to get my Bachelor's degree in Childhood Education in the hopes of becoming an Elementary teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon, or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I was raised in the Church, and always did my best to follow what my parents taught. When I got older, I wanted to have for myself the same conviction that my parents had to the teachings of the Gospel. I prayed and received an answer from God that this is His Church and that the teachings are true. I know, without a doubt, that this is Christs' church, that He reestablished the same church that He set up when He was on the earth before. There is nothing better than knowing that God loves me, that I am His daughter, and that I can live with Him and my family forever! That's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

The biggest way that I live my faith is by performing the small and simple daily tasks that help me come closer to Christ - prayer, scripture study, and doing things that Christ would do. This includes trying to set a good and Christ-like example to my siblings and parents. I do my best to understand the scriptures and the teachings that Christ has given. I find something to apply from my scripture study each day which really helps in my endeavor to become like Him.
