Who I Am

 Who I am today

hawaiiSo I am still Amanda Kissel. But I am no longer a full-time missionary. So all the things that I love, I still love. All things that I am not overly fond of I am still not overly fond of. A few things have changed. I am a returned missionary. I go to a singles ward. I am a full time student. I am facing the challenges that face all of us who are this road we call life. It will never be easy this journey, but it will be worth it.

A few things haven’t changed. Those things include what I learned on my mission. One of those things is that Jesus is the Christ, my Savior and Redeemer. That the Book of Mormon is a second witness of the divinity of Jesus Christ.  I also know that Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. That knowledge hasn’t changed.

So come along with me as I continue through this life continually finding hope in this troubled world. Some things change and some things don’t.


Missionary me

I am Amanda Kissel. I used to live in Idaho. I used to be a customer service coordinator at TJ Maxx. I used to be a student at Idaho State University.I used to devour books like most people eat candy. I used to dance. I will always be a daughter, a sister, an aunt.

But now, I am Sister Kissel, a disciple of Jesus Christ. As His disciple,  I share an important message. The message I share is that hope exists. Hope exists because of Jesus Christ and His conquering over death. Everything else is appendages to the fact that because of Him we can return to our Father in Heaven. Hope does exist in the world today.  And I am a witness that it can be found.

Everday I find more and more that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is what gives us hope and joy. It is only through Jesus Christ and His Gospel that we can ever have lasting happiness and joy.
