Hi I'm Amy Ellison

I grew up in California. I am an Army wife and mother of three. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and mother. My family is a military family. We have lived in Colorado, Oklahoma and Germany. I love my Father in Heaven, husband and kids. I am a scout parent and volunteer. I am student and will have a bachelor's degree in elementary education in April of 2014. And I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that our Father in Heaven loves us so much that he created this world for us, His children. I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth to help and teach us how to return to our Father. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and restored the true gospel of Jeus Christ to the earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet today on the earth. I know that The Book of Mormon is true. When I was 17 years old in Seminary (a high school class) we were studying The Book of Mormon. After reading, I accepted Moroni's challenge and I prayed to our Father in Heaven asking him if The Book of Mormon is true and at the very moment my mind was very clear and being touched by the Holy Ghost I knew that what I had read was indeed true.

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures. I love Family Home Evenings on Monday nights. I love to pray to my Father in Heaven. I love to attend my church meetings. I love to serve my kindred in the temple. I love the temple. I know families can be together forever.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Amy Ellison
I know that we have a living prophet today; Thomas S. Monson. I know that he and his counselor's fulfill the same role as Peter, James and John fulfilled in the primitive church. I love the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
