Hi I'm Amy

I'm a missionary serving in the ghettos of South Florida, I love disneyland, I have a fat leg, and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am 21 years old and I am currently serving a mission in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for the next 18 months. I love being a missionary and I can't imagine doing anything else or being anywhere but here. This is the best thing I could be doing with my life at this time and I am truly blessed for the opportunity to serve! Before my mission, I was studying Public Health/Health Promotion at BYU and I absolutely love it! I love the idea of using my knowledge and passion to help improve other people's lives. After my mission, I will return to college and finish my degree- I can't wait to see what the future will bring! I'm all about the simple things in life. I love spending time with my family, trying new things, learning, exploring, going on road trips...documenting it all in my journal, and doing all I can to make life exciting and enjoyable!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with all of my heart that this church is true! Nobody convinced or forced me to be a member of this church, I am a member because I love this gospel and everything that the church stands for. I have prayed many times and received multiple confirmations that the things that I believe are true, and I could never deny that. This gospel brings SO much joy and happiness to my life, and I am so blessed to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am extremely grateful to be out in the mission field, helping others come closer to Christ and recieve the happiness and direction that this gospel brings.

How I live my faith

The past 2 summers I have had the opportunity to work as a youth counselor for the church's Especially for Youth program, and that has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. I absolutely LOVE working with the youth and helping them learn and grow. Watching the gospel change these teenager's lives was a huge motivating factor that fed my desire to go on a mission. Now, I live my faith by serving the Lord as a representative of Him and His church, by sharing my knowledge of this truth to the beautiful people of Florida. When I return home, after my mission, I will continue to live my faith in all I do by following the gospel of Jesus Christ, strengthening my current family and preparing for my future family, and doing all I can to make the world a better place.
