Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up without a testimony of God or Christ. I was a stubborn convert, but eventually the gospel made sense to me

About Me

I studied and investigated several religions before joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Before joining the church I was a practicing Buddhist; one of my favourite things about the various spiritual paths I have followed is that I have been able to learn universal truths before I came to know them through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I joined the church in 2012, so I have a lot of catching up to do!

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't looking for a personal testimony of the gospel when I started investigating. I wanted to learn on an academic level, but I didn't believe in God or in Jesus Christ. When I finally realised that I did believe it was a surprise to myself and everyone around me. Learning of the gospel has helped me put my life experiences into perspective in a deeper way than I was able before; it has also helped me become a better, happier, and more developed person.

How I live my faith

I am a ward missionary, and I enjoy going out with our full time sister Missionaries and teaching others. I enjoy opportunities to talk to my non-member friends and family about how the gospel has changed my life, and I enjoy the unique perspectives of other members as well as those who follow different faiths.
