Hi I'm Amy

I am a wife and mom of seven. I homeschool. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, sister, wife and mother, so what makes me unique? Well, I am a native Georgian. I was 45 when our seventh child was born by choice at home. I have homeschooled all of our children for the past 12 years, and I run a home based business that focuses on empowering individuals to gain greater physical and mental health by becoming aware of emotional and nutritional contributors to illness. I love to learn and teach. I am inspired by uplifting music and love leading the music for my church congregation. I am a member of my local Tea Party and support our Constitutional Republic form of government whole heartingly. I wear many hats, but the one hat that means the most to me and that I wear at ALL times is that I am Mormon. My faith in God and His son Jesus Christ permeates all I do, say and live for. My religion is not just a part of my life--it is my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I choose to be! I was the fourth of five children born in my family and as far as I was concerned we were always Mormon. I realized when I was a little older that not all my extended family was Mormon. My maternal grandparents were Mormon and my mom was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Both my paternal grandparents were not Mormon. They got divorced when my dad was young, and he was sent to live with his grandparents. Luckily for him and me, they were Mormon, so my dad was also raised in the Church. I attribute my early membership and activity to my Mormon heritage. However, why I am a Mormon today is not about my heritage but about my personal testimony that the gospel of Jesus Chirst has been restored in these latter days, and I want to be a member of Christ's church.

How I live my faith

From daily morning devotionals including personal, spouse and family prayers as well as family and personal scripture study, until the night ends with family, spouse, and personal prayers and my husband and I listen to or read a message from Latter-day Prophets and Apostles, I live my faith. The foundation of all I do as an individual and all we do as a family is based on the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. What music we listen to, what games we buy and play, what media we watch, what books we read, what subjects we study in school, what conversations we have with others, what career choices we make, what extracurricular activities we engage in are all influenced by our faith. We strive to always remember Jesus Christ and to live our lives so that the gift of the Holy Ghost, given to us at baptism, can always be with us.
