Hi I'm Amanda

I love movies, music and reeses. Coke never Pepsi, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm in my 20's and enjoy reading, movies and being in nature. There is nothing better than being outside. I am a nerd and proud of it. I also speak Italian, because I lived there for about a year and a half.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon becasue I choose to be. Living the Gospel is not always easy but it is always worth it!! I was born and raised LDS but I found out for myself that it was true. I know it is true. I did what so many people have done, I prayed and I felt it to be true and experiances in my life constantly reaffirm that. I love this Gospel with all my heart and cannot imagine my life without it. The gospel helps me deal with my anxiety. This life is hard, but the gospel helps take away the fear and doubt.

How I live my faith

I help with the Family history effort in my ward. Family history is so amazing! I love finding my relatives and learning about how they where born, lived and died. There stories inspire me everyday. It is so cool to see how past family members dealt with the problems of there time.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Amanda
We are normal people, well kind of, we believe in being in the world but not off the world. What the heck does that mean you might ask? It means that we have high standards and focus on our Families. We care more about what our Father in Heaven thinks of us than what people around us do. We constantly try to live our lives with the courage to stand up for whats right, what God wants, not what people think is cool or popular. We think that there is more to life than just being "Good", in the words or president Gordon B Hinckley (former presient of the LDS Church) " It is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And that goo that is in you must spread to others." We serve people and do our best everyday to be better than the day before, life is a process, take it one day at a time. Show more Show less
