Hi I'm Amy.
I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a Texan. And I'm a Mormon.
I grew up in Texas, the oldest of three girls. (I know, I know. My poor father.) While in high school I enjoyed playing volleyball and trying to make good grades. I went to college and received a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also met and married my husband during that time. I taught first grade for two years. We have since been blessed with two darling boys, and I have the amazing privilege of staying at home to enjoy them. I love my life.
Why I am a Mormon
I'm a Mormon because it enriches my life and brings me closer to my Savior. I'm a better person, wife, and mother because of the teachings of Jesus Christ. While I grew up as a Latter-day Saint, I did study out and pray to receive my own testimony. I read the Book of Mormon, and I prayed about it. I knew that it was true. I have strived so far to live the teachings of the Gospel, and I continue to reap the benefits of this in my life.
How I live my faith
Our little family tries to have family prayer and family scripture study every day. We have a weekly Family Night, where we learn more about the scriptures and participate in fun activities (and have a treat at the end, of course!). In our congregation, I'm involved with teaching the Young Women in the ward--more specifically the 14-15 year old girls. I absolutely love it! I also am blessed to be assigned three other sisters in our congregation to check in on every month or so. This gives me a good excuse to make (and eat) cookies to drop off when we stop by their homes. Individually, I read the scriptures and I try to pray at least twice a day. I seek the Lord out to help me solve my small, daily problems, and my faith is strengthened as I see His hand help me in my life.
