Hi I'm Amanda Burdick

I was born and raised in Texas and loved it! I am currently serving in the Alaska Anchorage Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished up my associates degree at our Community College near by after finishing a year at Tarleton State University! When I return home from my mission, I will finish my degree in Family and Consumer Science Education, minoring in Mathematic Education to teach at the high school level! I made my decision serve a mission very recently and then received my call to the Alaska Anchorage Mission! I love to go swimming and just be by the pool and soak up some Texas sun! I love to play games with my family, anywhere from board games or card games to Mario on the Wii!

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful and blessed to have grown up in this church. Through this, I have gained a testimony of its truth for myself. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the restored Church. I know that through this church we can be baptized by proper authority and can have everlasting life. I love my family and I know that we can all be together forever! I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and knows each and everyone of us individually! I know that the Book of Mormon was written for us and translated by the Prophet Joseph Smith who is a true prophet chosen of God. I can not wait to share these truths with the people of Alaska so they can truly understand why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving and being an example to others! I just got called to serve in the Alaska Anchoarge Mission to become a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! Before that, I was a ward missionary which means I went out with the missionaries serving in my area and helped them along with other members and people who were interested in the Church! I love living my faith by attending activities the church organizes and providing service the best I can for others! I constantly stand up for what I know to be true even if no one else around me has the same faith or beliefs! By this, I try to be the best example to all that I come in contact with. I also live my faith by staying true to what I know is right. With a deeper understanding of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that true happiness doesn't just come by knowledge or faith, but it comes also by action!
