Hi I'm Amanda W.

I've lived in Nevada my whole life. I was Student Body Pesident. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA. I played varsity sports(Volleyball, Basketball). I love to write. I'm going on a mission to Canada and I'm super excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a part of this church my whole life. I went to church every Sunday and then to Seminary every morning. However, I never really knew if the church was true. I pushed away my duties as a daughter of God and made decisions that weren't all that great. It consumed my thoughts, my heart, and my life. That's when I started to figure out that Satan was using all his power on the one weakness I had. When I realized this my life began to change. I repented and my gracious Heavenly Father forgave me. I apologized to my parents who had to deal with the decisions that I had made, they forgave me. The power of the Atonement became real, and I am so grateful for the sacrifice Christ has made for me and all of His brothers and sisters here on earth. Not long after my dramatic change, I had a feeling, a feeling that surprised me. I was prompted to serve a mission and I had never consider this option before. I sat a long time quietly, freaking out inside. I didn't want to tell my Mom because she would get her hopes up and I didn't want to let her down. Finally, after what seemed like forever, I knew that I had to go and serve my Lord because that was what He wanted me to do. I told my Mom and after that there was no turning back. Looking back now, I know why Satan worked so hard on me, he didn't want me to go on a mission, he didn't want me to serve. Satan can TRY and control you, however if you realize the power the Lord has and the plan he has for you, Satan will lose and you will be one step toward eternal happiness. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that he loves every single person on earth. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and that with the Lords help he restored the gospel to the world. I know if you pray Heavenly Father will answer. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

My calling right now is to serve as a missionary to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I haven't started it yet but that hasn't stopped me from preparing by praying, reading my scriptures, and other tools that I have found. I live my faith by serving him, my Heavenly Father.
