Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up in Las Vegas, I'm currently a working college student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I am a college student at CSN and studying to become a Physical Therapist. I also work at a Home Care Agency, and teach swim lessons on the side. Although, in less than two months my current education and life will be put on hold. I will be serving a mission in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo East Mission for a period of 18 months, beginning August 1st! I am beyond excited! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to follow Christ's gospel because of the happiness it brings to my life. I've always grown up in the gospel, but I haven't always had the strongest testimony. Throughout my teenage years I attended church, and pretty much just went with the flow, thinking I could get by without trying to improve. It wasn't until my Junior year in high school where I realized I needed to find out for myself if the church was right for me. I started getting more involved, praying, and participating more and more in seminary and church activities. Soon after I felt great and I knew what I was doing was right. Even though I was baptized at 8, I feel that my "conversion" wasn't until high school. The next year I became the Seminary president and continued to be involved with this wonderful gospel after Graduation. I now have decided to serve of mission for this church. I know that we are all God's Children, and he loves us and has provided us with what we need to return and live with him again. Having this wonderful gift of the gospel is truly a blessing in my life, and I can not wait to share it with my fellow brother's and sisters. Oh wait! I'm sharing it right now! :) I have a true testimony of the Book of Mormon that IT IS another testament of Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, and he helped restore Christ's church back to this earth. I love this gospel and I can not say it enough! It brings so much happiness to my life that I can not imagine my life or my family without it.

How I live my faith

As of right now I am preparing to serve a mission. I also Teach Sunday School. This is my third year teaching the youth, and I love it! :) I've grown up with the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints and my Testimony grows increasingly everyday.
