Hi I'm Aimee

I am a wife. I am a mother of a very active 3 year old. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have been married for five years. I have a a 3 year old boy who is very active. I currently work from home so that I can be with him, so I am very fortunate. I am a convert to the church and have been a member for almost 10 years. Joining the church was the most important thing I have done in my life. Every good thing I have now has come from that decision.

Why I am a Mormon

I moved from home when I was 20 years old for an adventure and do something new. My aunt and her family let me live with them. Just before I moved in with them they were sealed as a family in the temple. I remember telling my aunt, "I will not go to church everyday". Her response, "We don't go to church everyday, only Sunday". Well that first Sunday came and I went to church. I don't remember the feelings I had but I continued to go every Sunday with their family. Finally the Missionaries found out that I wasn't a member and asked if I would take the discussions. I said yes. This was toward the end November 2001, just a month after I had moved. I still had not decided if I would be baptized until one day when I had a bad day at work. I had a very rude customer just before closing and I had to help him. I am very emotional and I remember crying in the backroom and I didn't know what to do. So I did what I had been learning about. I prayed to Heavenly Father to help me help this customer and to comfort me. So after all of this I went home and told my aunt what happened. I was supposed to have the missionaries over that night and she said, "Do you want me to call and cancel". I said, "NO". Well they came over and I didn't know it before the meeting but this was the meeting where they were going to try and get me to commit to baptism. I told them what happened and when they asked me if I would be baptized I said yes without hesitation. I know that I had to have this experience that day so that I was humble enough to make the choice to be baptized. I know that it was the right choice and I will never regret it.

How I live my faith

During my time as a member of this church I have had many callings. I have taught the children in Sunday School, worked in family history, helped plan activities for the young single adults, worked with the young women of the church, in Cub Scouts as the Committee Chairperson, and I am currently the visiting teaching coordinator. I am thankful for these callings as they have helped me grow in the church and in life.
