Hi I'm Amy

I love cheesy jokes, I love watching films, I'm almost a graduate and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have almost finished my degree in french and English. Life is quite stressful sometimes with a dissertation to write and exams to think about. Not to mention the scary world of after university. The gospel of Jesus Christ keeps me going, helps me to stay grounded and keeps me happy. I love my saviour Jesus Christ and try to live my life accordingly.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it makes me so happy!! I was brought up in the church but i had to study it out for myself and pray sincerely to know if it is true. As I did so I felt peace and this was confirmation to me that it is true. Also throughout my life as I have lived the teachings of the church, I have seen how they have blessed me and my family and I am so grateful for this gospel in my life. I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I currently teach early morning seminary which involves getting up most days at 5.30 am and teaching about 8 youths aged from 15-18 about the new testament. Its challenging but i love it! I love my students and I love learning more about Christ and coming closer to Him. Through callings in the Church I know I have really changed as a person and grown in confidence and faith. The gospel to me is more than just something to do on a Sunday, it's a way of life. A life that's full of family, joy, faith, peace, hope and love.

What is the priesthood?

Amy
The priesthood is the power to act in God's name on earth. It is given to worthy males of the church i.e those living in accordance with the standards of the church from aged 12. It means that essential ordinances like baptism can be carried out by the power of God and with His authority. I am very grateful for the priesthood, it has blessed my life many times.   Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Amy
YES! The full name of the church is the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. We believe in Christ, that He is the literal son of God, that He was born of Mary, that He atoned for our sins, that He died for us and was resurrected three days later. We know that He still lives and He stands at the head of His church, The church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. I know He lives and that He loves me. He is my Saviour and my friend.
