Hi I'm Amanda

Hi my name is Amanda I'm 22 yrs old & I'm a Mormon (:

About Me

I am fun, loving, and full of adventure! I like to sing randomly, dance when no one is looking, laugh at not so funny jokes and even make a few of them! I just enjoy trying to live life the best I can with being happy NOW! I have had to face many obstacles in life but, if there is one thing I have learned in my short 22 yrs of living is that life is too short to always be sad! I chose to put my trust in God and not dwell in darkness. I have found my light and I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I will be serving for 18 months and I am truly so grateful for the opportunity in which I have to serve my Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I KNOW IT'S TRUE!! I was baptized at age 18. It was a chose I made for myself after months of debating. One day at church I was sitting in class and out of no where something just whispered to me "it's true." I just felt like everything made sense, so I took that leap of faith and was baptized. However, a few months later I fell away from the church. I was living my life doing things that only brought temporary joy, not even happiness. I didn't have a strong testimony of the gospel. I knew that God was real and that he knew me and that the decision that I made was right but, I didn't understand what it meant to put Him first. The decision that I made to go back to church came gradually after but when I chose to turn to Him, he was there to receive me with open arms! I know that when we turn to God and use the Atonement of Jesus Christ in our lives, we can have true and lasting happiness! I have grown so much as I continue to go to church, read my scriptures, and obey the commandments. I know for MYSELF the Book of Mormon is true! It has changed my life so much! I know that God loves us so much that he gave us the Old Testament, the New Testament and Another Testament (the Book of Mormon) to show us that he is the same yesterday, today and forever! He loves his children on one side of the world just as much as he loves them on the other. If I came to know this church is true then so can you!

How I live my faith

The most important way I live my faith is by trying to be more like my Savior Jesus Christ and serve others. I try to treat others with love and kindness and try my best to act how Jesus would act in all situations. Although it is not always easy it is something I strive to do to be the best person I can be!
