Hi I'm Amy.

I'm a sign-language interpreter. I love playing piano. I'm a mother of 12 in a beautiful blended family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Amy, a mother of a large blended family, and I love to learn! Things I love to do: play and perform the piano, sing in our church choir and a performing choir, dance ( Zumba), read, keep our family history through journals and scrapbooks, camp and hike, explore new places and spend time with my amazing eternal companion Anthony. You may see and hear me cheering my kids on in Rugby, Lacrosse, Soccer, and Football games and at dance recitals. I enjoy teaching piano students and working as a freelance ASL interpreter in the community. Favorite snacks include popcorn, fruit smoothies, and Red Vines licorice!

Why I am a Mormon

I believe to look at each day as a fresh new start...with a smile. I believe I have a personal Savior who loves and understands me. I believe that the sacrament cleanses me. I believe my answers to prayer are found in the scriptures. i believe my Heavenly Father loves and understands my children even more than I do. I believe following the Word of Wisdom (health code) includes exercise, healthy food, and a good night's sleep. I believe that somehow we are all connected. I believe I find strength beyond my own. I believe that everything counts in life. I believe virtuous hearts will be drawn towards each other. I believe that we are here on earth to forgive, comfort and support each other. Parents who committed themselves to the Lord raised me. I was taught to what source to pray, gain counsel and direction, and receive forgiveness. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Being a Mormon is my life. One of my children is in heaven watching over us. She passed away one hour after her birth. That kind of a loss is a tragedy. However, I am at peace knowing she lives again with Heavenly Father and we will be reunited someday. If I didn't have that knowledge, I couldn't continue living with the peace of mind and a surety that comes as a true blessing from God. We will continue our family ties and relationships for eternity.

How I live my faith

I try each day to obey God's commandments. My friends are examples to me of ones striving to live a Christ-centered life. We influence each other for good. On Sundays, I currently serve in our Primary Presidency. Visiting teaching blesses my life when I remember to go, so there's always room for improvement. :) I wake up each morning and choose to be happy. Throughout the day, I think these three things before I speak: Is it true? Is it nice? Is it necessary? If what I'm about to say can hit all three, then it's a home run! I love people and accept and respect differences. I stand firmly in my convictions. My journey living with Multiple Sclerosis began at age 17. Plans and dreams were put on hold, yet not forgotten. I've learned to become more flexible, adapt and accept things I cannot change or control on a day to day basis. My self-worth has been redefined as to who I am, not what I can do. I don't take a healthy day for granted. The Lord is my constant when often I'm in situations that feel like I'm swimming against currents I'm not strong enough to withstand physically. The unexpected becomes the expected, and I struggle with loss of short term memory and brain fog. These are signs that it's time to put everything on hold, reach out for help, and rest. I take one day at a time, and some days just an hour. The Lord does and will provide. Trust Him. I'm much happier when I do.
