Hi I'm Amie

I'm a sister, aunt, daughter, scrapbooker and shopaholic, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to travel, cook and scrapbook. I love to laugh and have a good time, I believe that time spent with those that you love is time well spent.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandmother was shopping in the grocery store in 1979 and saw a sign up for a free Book of Mormon, so she signed up her daughter. A few weeks later a Senior Missionary couple came to visit my parents. At first they were not interested in hearing what the couple had to say, but the couple was persistent and after returning to my parents house, which was quite a ways off the beaten path, my father relented and invited the couple in. A few months later he was baptized a member of the Church. My mother, who was 8 months pregnant, however decided to wait until after I was born to be baptized. So I was "one of the luck ones" who grew up going to primary and young womens. I have a strong testimony that there was an apostacy and a restoration of priesthood keys. I have been to Kirtland, OH; Carthage, IL; Nauvoo, IL; and Palmyra, NY not to mention several other places in Church history. I testify that the spirtit of the Lord resides in those places and that if you are open to it, you will feel it too. I know that Joseph Smith was a real person and he did see the Father and the Son in a grove of trees. I have been to that grove a couple of times in my life and know for a surety, that this is the place that dispensation of the fullness of times started. The gospel that was restored by Joseph Smith is the gospel of Jesus Christ. It has the same organization, keys and priesthood authority that existed at the time of our Savior.

How I live my faith

I attend a local singles branch. I love teaching the women in the branch once a month about gospel principles. I try to keep a positive attitude towards life and the trials that are sent my way. I believe that anyones day can be brightened with a smile.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Temples are the house of the Lord. Each one is different in construction, but each has The House of the Lord, Holiness to the Lord above the entrance. Inside the temple, members of the church have the opportunity to make sacred covenants with the Lord for themself and others who are no longer living. Inside the temple we learn more about our Heavenly Father's plan for us and how to draw closer to him, so that we may be worthy to return and live with him again. Show more Show less
