Hi I'm Amy

I am a country girl, I country swing dance, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am from a small town in Idaho and my family means so much to me! I have 6 older siblings and 22 nieces and nephews! Some things I love to do are country swing dancing and hanging out with friends and family! But right now I have the priveledge to be a missionary! I love my work as a missionary and it is something I will always be grateful that I was able to do! It is amazing to really come to love people and see their lives change! My role as a missionary is to leave my eternal family to help my brothers and sisters in the Houston Texas area come unto Christ so they can live with our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ along with their families forever! Before my mission I went to college at BYU-Idaho for three years and got my associates. After I return home I plan to go back to school!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? That is a good question! :) The Gospel of Jesus Christ means the world to me. I have been taught these teachings ever since I was born. But as I have applied these teachings in my life the more I realize that this the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the LORD'S kingdom restored back on the earth through a prophet of God. The teachings that they teach us is the way for us to LIVE our lives. The standards that I have been taught and that I have strived to live has brought me the most satisfaction and happiness than anything else that this world has to offer!

How I live my faith

I have been blessed of goodly parents who have lived and taught us the gospel of Jesus Christ. As I have embraced those values I have come to realize that the gospel of Jesus Christ is a lifestyle! As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I have strived to become closer to my Savior and follow His example. I am not perfect by any means but as I have learned and grown through life experiences and through the gospel I have come to know my Savior more. This gospel is what brings the smile to my face and has brought the most joy and happiness and satisfaction in my life. Currently, I am serving as a full time missionary in the Houston,Texas area! We go around and teach about the gospel. Some may ask why we would want to do that....my personal answer to that is that the gospel means so much to me and I want to share it with other children of God!

Who was Joseph Smith?

Amy
Who is Joseph Smith? That is a very good question. Joseph Smith was a young boy living in New York in the early 1800s. He was a farm boy with a low education level. When he was a teenager he noticed the religous turmoil in his area and wanted to know which one was true. He was reading the Bible and one day he came across James 1:5 which counsels us to ask God if we lack wisdom. He pondered on that scripture and its message for a while. He eventually came to the conclusion that he needed to ask God. He decided to go to the woods next to his house and pray. As he prayed Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to him. That experience was the first experience for Joseph Smith that led to the Restoration (or the bringing back) the Fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God restored his Gospel that Christ taught while He was on earth through the Prophet, Joseph Smith! Show more Show less
