Amanda Vernon

Catholic Evangelist


Amanda Vernon is a full-time recording artist and co-author of the new memoir, When God Wrecks Your Romance: Orthodox Faith, Unorthodox Story. She has shared her original music across the U.S. and in six foreign countries. This singer, pianist, and composer shares the joy of knowing Christ through testimony and song.
