Hi I'm Amanda Maughan

I'm a Mormon and I LOVE being one! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints brings me so much Joy and Happiness in my Life!

About Me

So a little about me... I love traveling and learning about new cultures and seeing the beauty of the world!! I enjoy water sports, my dad is a kayak designer so naturally I'm a little addicted to the sport! But a good pull behind the boat on a wake board or slaloming is something I've always loved to do with my family. Basketball is my outlet and my favorite sport although, beach volleyball is pretty close to it also! I love the outdoors hiking, camping, and going mountain biking!! One thing that my family will never let me forget is when I ate a worm!! I was glutton for punishment on that one, but at age 3 who knew?!! I love my job!!!!!!! I've been a Cosmetologist for 4 years now!! I love making people happy and feel good about themselves. I have recent put work on hold to go on a Mission for 18 months where I am excited to do the Lord's work!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know Heavenly Father has a plan for me! He wants me to be happy in this life and to return to Him! I know that we have a loving Savior, and by using His sacred Atonement we can be healed from our sorrows and repent for our sins so that we may be clean again. I know that we have a living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, today who receives revelation from God. I know when I follow His council it will bring joy and peace in my life. I also know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet who restored the Saviors Church in these latter days. I love the tender mercies from our Heavenly Father when I choose to follow the Commandments and do the things He wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of Christ's Church, it is who I am and how I live my life. I made it a goal to attend the Temple once a week. The Temple has become my "safe haven" and a place where I love to feel of the Spirit and learn of who I am. I love my family and I'm so grateful for the Plan of Salvation that creates a way to be with my family forever. Not just in this life, but in the life to come! I've had the privilege of having many callings to serve in the Church.. I was a Sunbeam teacher (4 year olds) super fun to have taught these precious little ones! I served as a Ward Missionary and loved going out with the Sister Missionaries. I was the Secretary in the Stake Young Women's Presidency and Ward Young Women Camp Director. Recently I was over Family Home Evening in a singles ward!!! I LOVED it!!!! I have loved my callings, each one has brought blessings into my life at a time when I needed them to help strengthen my faith and teach me to be a better person.
