Hi I'm Amanda

I grew up in Utah. I love music and tennis and am currently a missionary in Frankfurt Germany. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I play the cello, the violin, and the piano. I am a freshman in college. My favorite band is Twenty Øne Piløts. I enjoy hiking, playing tennis, reading, napping, and eating good food.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. I believe that being a member of this church adds something to my life that nothing else can. Nothing brings me as much joy, peace, and happiness as being a follower of Christ and trying to become more like him every single day. As I have studied the Gospel throughout my life and learned more about my Savior, I have found purpose in my life. I have learned that the Savior provided a way for me to become like Him. I know that I am not perfect but because Christ atoned for my sins I can repent and become clean again. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. No other book has brought me as much light and truth as that book has. As I have read, studied, and prayed about it, I have gained a testimony of it's truth. I have taken the invitation in the introduction to the Book of Mormon that says: "We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost." and I know that anyone else who takes this invitation can also gain a witness that the book is true. I am grateful for the knowledge I have that there is more after this life and that I can live with my family again. I am grateful for Joseph Smith and for everything he did to restore the true church to the earth. I know he was a prophet called of God and that he translated the Book of Mormon so that it could be used in this day. I am grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and for the happiness it brings into my life.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission to Germany. I am excited to go share the Gospel with the people there!
