Hi I'm Amy

Hi, I'm Amy. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and Mormon. #ibelieve

About Me

I am married to the love of my life. We met while attending BYU in Provo Utah. I have 3 amazing children that I live to serve. My dream job was always motherhood so being here is the highest achievement. My interests are family time, hubby time, YW, animals, travel, yoga, reading, crafting, junking, bargain shopping, and time with my favorite girlfriends. I love to explore new places and make memories!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who converted in their 20's, embraced the Gospel, and remain steadfastly active. I am Mormon because this Gospel is true, plain and simple. No one knows all the answers, but Christ's Gospel has so many. I have a testimoy that God lives and that His only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, blessed our lives with the atonement by sacrificing Himself for our sins. I want to live with my Father in Heaven again, and be with my family forever. Because of His Gospel, I know that I can and what I need to do to achieve my eternal goals. Everyone can have happiness here on this earth and once we leave it. God wants us to be happy and has shown us the way by giving us the gift of His Son, even Jesus Christ. Learn about his life and mission by reading both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I believe this Gospel to be true to the teachings that Jesus established when he was on the earth so long ago. Mormons try to pattern their lives after Christ. We aren't perfect, but we strive to do His work which means so many wonderful things. Can I teach you about the Plan of Salvation? You bet I can! Give me a chance.

How I live my faith

Being a faithful Latter Day Saint is a daily journey. I feel closest to my Heavenly Father when I pray regularly, I read the scriptures, I share my testimony with my family and friends, I attend my Church meetings, and especially when I visit the temple. I'll admit that being Mormon requires a great deal of commitment. But ask yourself, is there any better mission to commit to than that of serving the Lord? Answer; nope. Let me illustrate by using a simple equation: you + the Gospel of Christ = eternal happiness. Hurray for eternal happiness!!!

Who was Joseph Smith?

I think out of all the questions that I am asked, the Joseph Smith Conundrum questions are my favorite. I have a family member that likes to say things to me like, "Oh yeah, so you really believe that Joseph Smith found some gold plates and that he gave them to an angel when he was done translating them! Hardy har har." Well, my answer to that question is definitely "You betcha!", but let me add a bit to that. Let's start with the basics. Do you believe in the Bible? I am going to pretend that your answer is yes because where I go from here is a lot more interesting if that's the case. In the Bible, we can read about many, many prophets that lived on this earth, performed numerous miracles, and had the Priesthood (or power of God on earth). Certainly God loves His children that live on this earth today as much as he loved His children mentioned in Biblical times. If prophets existed then, why would we not have capable prophets given the same Priesthood abilities now? If Moses parted the Red Sea, is it a stretch to think that Joseph Smith, a modern day prophet, translated ancient plates to provide us with another testament of Jesus Christ? Not for me. I choose to believe that God the Father does indeed love all of His children equally. We have the same church organization that existed in the primitive church, we have the same commandments, the same Priesthood, and the same divine leadership. Show more Show less
