My name is Amanda. I am 24 years old. I live in Northern California,where I grew up. Since turning 18, I have traveled from The East Coast back to the Southwest and have recently returned home where I plan to land. Since I was a child, I have been a free spirit and always felt a great desire to travel and it has led me on a search for self and deeper purpose. My journey so far has been a spinning kalidescope with many colors and directions and at times the colors were dark and unclear......but... all the while I have felt God's love and exerienced his AMAZING grace. To be honest.... I have went through long periods of time where in my search I was mislead into thinking that livivng my life for God would be a confining lifestyle filled with only rules and regulations. But after many painful moments I have realized through God's forgiveness and grace that in reality a life with Jesus is the ONLY freedom and joy I will ever find.
