Hi I'm Amanda

I love hiking and playing the cello. I am preparing to serve in the Spain Barcelona Mission! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Southern Utah my whole life and love it! Hiking in Zion National Park is definitely one of my favorite things to do. I also love playing the cello and the piano. My mom taught my siblings and me how to play the piano at a young age and encouraged us to learn other instruments. She is an excellent example to me of serving through music. She has played the organ countless times for church services without ever being paid because of her love for music and serving the Lord. Besides music and hiking, and I also love the color yellow, watching Disney movies, eating churros, and making people laugh. I have been called to serve as a missionary in Barcelona, Spain and am super excited! I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. This knowledge has made a difference in my life, and I want to share the love and hope that Christ has for all of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! I know that God wants us to have joy, and true, lasting happiness is found in coming unto Christ. We can come unto Christ by having faith in Him and His Atonement, repenting, being baptized, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. When I follow Jesus Christ's example of love and service, I am able to find happiness and fulfillment in my life. Being a Mormon also helps me recognize God's love for me. He knows us individually and infinitely. We believe that we are children of God and that we can return to live with Him again. Families can be together forever!

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by studying about the Savior and His teachings in the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Life can be pretty crazy and hectic, but when I take the time to read the word of God, I am filled with peace. I also pray to Heavenly Father with faith that He hears me and will answer my prayers. He knows what I am going through and how to best help me. I also attend church regularly and strive to be kind to everyone around me.
