Hi I'm Amelia

I'm a college student, a wife, I love Disney movies, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have recently been married and what an adventure it has been. My husband and I have struggled in some areas of our marriage, mainly because we did not start our marriage the way we wanted, and that was in the temple, we got legally married and are striving for the temple. However, despite our struggles we seem to be able to make it through leaning on each other, family, friends, and trying to remember that God is there for us to despite our many faults. As I said I have a lot of things to juggle, we all do, and it gets hard. I go to college and study elementary education and right now my major has become a major demand of my time and it is overwhelming at times, but I believe that it is one of the things i want to do with my life. I love children and that is the inspiration for this career choice. Even more so what I want to do with my life is be a good mother. To be a mother at least as good as my mother, she is amazing and my hero, she loved her children and worked hard to provide for her families needs and wants along with the help of my loving father. They provided a wonderful place for a child to grow, it wasn't perfect but it was good and better then some I love them and want to do a good job at raising a strong, happy, and spiritual family. I want to share my interests with my children. My love of arts, music, and movies. I want to support them in their interests and hobbies. Maybe I am putting the cart before the horse but I know my husband and I want to add to our family, and when the time is right we will add to it, and add to our joy.  

Why I am a Mormon

With all the goals i have and all the struggles I have been through and are going through I try to remember that God and Jesus Christ loves me no matter what. So with this hard but happy time of juggling school, being married, other family priorities, goals and aspirations, blessings, and my personal struggles I try to go to God. I have struggled spiritually since I was about 18, not sure of what I had been taught all my life. I have also done things in the past that have made me feel like I am in dark room with no escape, but through the love and guidance this gospel brings through its teachings, leaders, friends family, and the holy ghost, all given to me by God I strive to find the light in my life again. I also now have my own foundation of what i have been taught in this gospel and believe it. I struggle, fall short, succeed, mess up, but no matter where I am in life I believe the God and Jesus Christ loves me and everyone on this earth and I mean EVERYONE, and he wants us to be happy. I believe in the teachings of this church because of the happiness and support it brings to me. For the love the love that I have felt from it, and the feelings from the holy ghost. I may not know everything about my church, but I have my faith. At this point I would not leave this church, I may feel like sometimes I can't do it, or I have messed up to much to receive forgiveness or to represent this wonderful church, but it gives me hope and happiness and I know when I feel that hopelessness it isn't true. I am not the best person, nor the best Mormon but I try and God sees my efforts and failures and encourages me onward.

How I live my faith

Currently in my ward, I am in charge of the nursery. I have about seven children that my helpers and I take care of while there parents attend there Sunday classes. The children range from 18months to 3 years old. I love working with these sweet children, they have such sweet spirits of there own. i love playing with them, hearing what the have to say, teaching them about the gospel and the love God and Christ has for them, and calming them when they are upset or hurt. They cry and reach there little arms up towards me, and it makes me feel so wonderful that they trust me to take care of them and that God trust me with his little ones. Its hard work sometimes, but I love it!
