Hi I'm Amy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single person, who likes to create personalized no sew blankets. I could spend hours doing crossword puzzles. I work for a United Way Agency that has programs for young children such as childcare, and behavioral health clinics. I am currently a long term substitute teacher working as an infant room teacher. I am an Aunt of three nephews and one niece. I own a cat, who is a very good companion.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I like living the moral values the church teaches such as integrity, responsibility, good works, chastity, pure living, families are forever, virtue, honesty, preparedness, and kindness. I have two families as a Mormon my blood-line family and church family. I moved to Connecticut almost eleven years ago knowing I had my sister and her family to rely on if I ever needed help. I now know I can stay here even if my blood family leaves, because I have made friends in the church who would help me out in anyway possible, if I needed them too.

How I live my faith

I am serving as an Assistant Den Leader working with the cub scouts. I have been serving in this capacity for 3 years. The church starts cub scouts at the age of eight although the Boy Scouts of America will start programs as young as 1st graders. The church endorses the Boy Scouts of America program because it believes their core values are similar to the standards of the LDS church. I have also been teaching nine and ten year old children the gospel since January of 2011. I sometimes think that I am learning more from them than they are from me. They are learning from stories in, The Book of Mormon, and The Doctrine and Covenants about faith, the plan of happiness, honesty, the ten commandments and many other subjects. It is important that children know about the scriptures as it gives them strength and courage to do what is right, when many of their peers are making poor choices that can be harmful to them.
