I am Amanda. By the grace of God, I am a born-again believer, washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. As a young child, I attended a sign language class one of the ladies in our church did. One day, she asked all of the children who were saved to raise their hands. I was not one of them, so afterwards, she asked me to talk to my parents about salvation. I went to Dad and Mom that night and asked them what I needed to do to be saved, but I clearly did not understand what they were saying. I was only following the lady’s request in talking with my parents. Later, when I was around seven, Mom had us doing daily personal devotions. As I read about the people who had strayed from God, my thoughts were “They need to be saved.” I remember writing that down as my thoughts on the chapter for several days. One day, God opened my eyes and I realized, that it was not “They need to be saved;” it was, “I need to be saved!” That night, I talked to Mom about my need for Christ, and she thoroughly explained the Gospel to me. I understood it that time, and accepted Christ as my Savior. A few months later, I was baptized as a symbol of what Christ did in my heart.
I was very blessed to have been homeschooled my entire life by my Mom, with the support of my Dad.
Currently, I am still living at home with my parents, striving to follow God each day of my life.
Some Things That I Enjoy:
The Lord has given me so many blessings and gifts! I have found it impossible to count them all! One of those blessings is the ability to enjoy a lot. My list is continually changing and growing, but here it is in general:
~My amazing family (www.TeroFamilyMinistries.com)
~Music in many shapes and sizes (piano, violin, singing with my family, teaching, arranging hymns, working on With a Joyful Noise)
~Writing (articles, Bible studies, short stories, novels)
