Hi I'm Mandy

I grew up in and around Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a high school grad. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have eight siblings three cats, two dogs, two turtles, and a nephew. I like to read, write, play soccer, debate, and draw. I've been going to college but I'm now preparing to serve a mission in Chile. I've lived in Utah my whole life and have never been outside of the country before now.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the church but I have chosen to follow and continue living the principles of the gospel because I have come to know that my life is better for it. I love the gospel and I love knowing that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know about me, care for me, and have a plan for me. Growing up in the gospel has taught me to value family, virtue, integrity, honesty etc. I appreciate what the gospel has done for me and my life and I try not to take it for granted. I believe this church is true and that the Book of Mormon is sacred scripture translated through the power of revelation by a true prophet Joseph Smith. I believe we can still receive answers and revelations on this earth today and that our current Prophet Thomas S. Monson gives us truths and guidance. Most importantly, to me that is, I know Jesus Christ suffered for our sins through the Atonement and in doing so has prepared a path for us to follow that will lead us back into the presence of our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I recently got called to teach the Sunbeams or kids from the age of 3 to 6 in Primary. I get to teach them all about prayer and that Jesus Christ loves and knows them and in turn they teach me to appreciate the wonders of the world more.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will invite you to hear about our Heavenly Father's plan and talk all about how much God loves you. That he sent his son Jesus Christ to Atone for us. Missionaries share messages about family and how we can be with them forever in Heaven. Show more Show less
