WELCOME TO AMANDA'S POEMS
Amanda was God's Chosen messenger of how to live a life
filled with faith, hope and love. She was an inspiration,
a testament to her faith, and proof of so many of God's
At age 16 Amanda was diagnosed with cancer; a battle
that would continue for the next seven years, until
she passed away at age 23. Amanda chose not to play
the part of the victim; instead to be a spirited and
courageous fighter, always secure in God's promise of
a place in heaven. Amanda accepted her mission to reach
out to others by living a life of faith, secure in her
intimate relationship with her Lord Jesus Christ.
Amanda's' beauty is shown in many ways; particularly
through her ability to express her emotions through
poetry. It was her desire to inspire and change the
lives and eternal fate of others through her experience.
Her poetry teaches us that even through a situation
may seem hopeless or we may feel alone, there is a loving
God who accepts us beyond our own understanding, who
will fill us with hope, love, and peace if we let Him
into our hearts.
The poems on the following pages are the expression
of her range of emotions. Her words communicate how
her relationship with God helped her through the tough
times and to be grateful, even under extreme challenges.
It was Amanda's wish that her poems be published and
given to others to inspire them and to show them where
she drew her strength - this is Amanda's message
