Hi I'm Aumanae

I play the harp, enjoy swing dancing and I'm going to serve and love the people of Russia for 18 months! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town, where we had to get creative to entertain ourselves. For as long as I can remember I've wanted to play the harp, just like every little girl, when I turned nine, my wonderful family gave me the best Christmas present ever! I spent my childhood running around outside hiding from the neighbors dogs and playing with the coolest big brother ever! I swam on our high school swim team, although my biggest fear is still drowning. I'm now studying to become a Physical Therapist, and enjoying almost all the aspects of college life, even the crazy study hours!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it's changed my life! I've grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I've always had it's influence in my life. My conversion happened gradually as I began to stand up on my own feet and know for myself that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that He is my Brother. This wonderful Church has helped me through every trial and every hard time in my life, and given me perspective . I am a Mormon everyday and in every aspect of my life, because the gospel is in every part of my life. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet, because I have studied his life, and I have prayed to receive that knowledge. I know that families can be together forever because God loves me and wants me to be happy. I know Jesus Christ suffered for my sins, He did this so that I may be clean and strive for progression instead of living in guilt. I also know that all of the covenants that we make with God are for our benefit, all of the rules and guidelines are there to keep me safe. The Book of Mormon is so incredibly true! It's true today and it's true tomorrow, it was written for me and for you, it was written because Heavenly Father loves us enough to send us knowledge and guidance. Through the Book of Mormon, I find peace, hope and knowledge! I know that this is God's true Church, and I know that He loves you and me!

How I live my faith

I live my faith, I always want to be the best I can be. I try to love everyone as a Child of God, because they are! Every person you pass on the street is special and loved by our Heavenly Father. I live my life in line with the commandments that God has given all of us, I dress modestly, I keep my thoughts clean and I'm always trying to improve! I live my faith by constantly trying to improve who I am and who I need to be!
