Hi I'm Amanda Cragun

I grew up in Syracuse, Utah. I love to play tennis, but most of all I love my family.

About Me

I have one older brother. I love hanging out with friends and family. I love tennis and playing games.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that people should do whatever makes them happy. For me, being Mormon brings me the most unbelievable happiness, peace, and joy. There is no greater joy than knowing that we have a Savior and He knows and loves each and every one of us. He has a plan for us. If we follow that plan we can return to Him and live in a state of happiness forever. That is the simple truth to why I am Mormon and always will be.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others and get involved. I participate in my community and religious community by planning and organizing events where we can all get together to feel the Spirit.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Amanda Cragun
A testimony is what you know to be true. You can gain a testimony by listening to the Holy Ghost and experiencing that sweet feeling of love in your heart. Often times when sharing your testimony with others, thats when you truly gain the certainty of what you are saying is true. Everybody's testimony is different, but not one of them is wrong. A quote by Henry B. Trying explains it perfectly, "You know from your own experience what a testimony is. President Joseph Fielding Smith taught that a testimony “is a convincing knowledge given by revelation to [a person] who humbly seeks the truth.” He said of testimony and the Holy Ghost, who brings that revelation, “Its convincing power is so great that there can be no doubt left in the mind when the Spirit has spoken. It is the only way that a person can truly know that Jesus is the Christ and that his gospel is true.”3" Show more Show less
