Hi I'm Amy

I am a mother of five....and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a stay at home mom of five children ranging in ages from 10 to 2. I have been married for 12 years. My husband recently converted to this church which I was born into and grew up practicing. We were sealed in the temple for time and all eternity in August 2008. I keep busy takin' kids to school and keepin' the house clean, fulfilling my callings and doing fun things whenever I get a chance to. I love to decorate, and am running out of rooms to paint. May seem boring, but I love it. It's all I've ever wanted to do. I love being home with my children and creating a home for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because in this world of searching and seeking happiness- it gives me REAL happiness. Happiness that does not fade, happiness that lasts. Because I am a Mormon, I know that my family can be together forever. Talk about happiness! That's why we're here.

How I live my faith

How could I live without my faith is a more appropriate question. i wonder daily, how could I overcome this difficulty if I did not know the things I know? How does one cope in a world with so much negativity without the glorious hope and happiness the gospel provides. I am a better person because of my faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ. I strive to be like him.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Amy
Mormon women are like no other. They are strong, intelligent, capable of amazing things, comapassionate, service oriented, and for the most part happy. We know what a great calling we have as women, and how important it is that we stand for truth and righteousness. At the same time, we are like every woman. We like to follow current trends in fashion, modified to be modest. We like to go out with our girlfriends, we love to socialize. We love our families. We want to succeed. Show more Show less

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Amy
The temple is the "House of the Lord". It is a sacred place where members of the church come to find peace in a crazy world. It is a place where we reflect on how to make our lives better and how to be more worthy to enter back into the presence of our Heavenly Father once we leave this life.. Sacred. As members of the church, we ourselves have to live righteously to enter the temple. We have prepared ourselves to come to this place. This is required of us to always have the house of the Lord a sacred place. This is why WORTHY members of the church are the only ones allowed to enter the temple. Show more Show less
