Hi I'm Amy.

I'm a wife & a mom of 7 kids. I love exercise, art, marriage and motherhood. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, teacher, nurse, chauffer, cook, shopper, janitor and launderer. I have a fun, loving, sweet, crazy, hardworking husband. I have 5 sons and 2 daughters. (boy, girl, boy, boy, boy, boy, girl) They are delightful! Being a wife and mom is very challenging, but I wouldn't trade it away! I absolutely love marriage and family life! I love serving my husband and kids! I love caring for newborn babies, safeguarding and nurturing "busy" toddlers, teaching playful children, and spending time with wonderful, chatty teenagers. And, whoa!- I love, love, LOVE spending time with my husband! I'm a worker and a runner. I am kind. I like to sing while I'm working in the kitchen. I love warm weather, and good music. I love portraits of little children sitting in sunlight. I like shopping and fashion. I can only eat a small list of foods. I used to work as an RN. I know quite a bit of sign language. I've been to Thailand twice, and I speak just a little Thai. Something that is a basic part of me is I really really love of the Book of Mormon. I just love the stories and the testimonies within it. I love how even little children can understand it. I have felt the Spirit testify of it's truthfulness to me countless times. In it I find answers to my problems, and spiritual strength. I especially love reading it with my family. I love how it helps me feel closer to Jesus. It is powerful.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, a Mormon. I find this a miraculous privilege! It is the greatest blessing of my life, the best choice I ever made. The Gospel is good, wholesome, uplifting, pure, true, and edifying. Through it I find peace unlike any other. I find safety for my soul. I find hope. I was born to parents that were members of the Church of Jesus Christ. But at some point, I did have a choice to be Mormon or not. My parents divorced when I was 7. My mom took us kids to church and she lived the Gospel standards. My dad chose differently. He provided me many opportunities and complete acceptance if I did not want to be a Mormon. I loved the way I felt when I went to church, especially when I felt the Spirit near. I loved the feelings within my mother's home. I felt good when I sang songs in Primary, listened to my Sunday School teachers, attended youth firesides, and when I learned about the Book of Mormon in seminary. I felt good when I bore my testimony. So I chose to be a Mormon. I'm so glad I did. I am thankful for those experiences. I have been richly blessed! My life is one of great joy! I still have trials, which allow me to learn and grow, but I have hope and happiness! Now as an adult, I find I still have a choice. Heavenly Father is perfectly meek. He does not force righteousness. Everyday we choose for ourselves. Gladly, gratefully, humbled by the privilege, I still choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Because family is precious to me, my greatest efforts of "living my faith" revolve around serving them. I know our family relationships are sacred, and that serving at home is the most important thing I'll do in life.
