Hi I'm Amy

I'm a mom, a wife and a businesswoman. I own AppleCheeks cloth diapers and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Montreal and am married to a wonderful Samoan man who was raised in New Zealand. Together we have three very big boys and I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on my own birthday - what a special birthday present! I adore my kids and really enjoy being active with them in the outdoors. My husband and I play sports with our kids, walk them to school and enjoy family cuddles. Together our family spends lots of time enjoying nature and I would for sure consider myself an environmentalist. Taking care of our Earth while taking care of our family is so important to me. In 2007 I started my own business manufacturing and wholesaling cloth diapers. Becoming a businesswoman was surprising to me but a natural fit. As I have developed my business into what it is today, I have learned to use my natural talents in sales and business. Managing family life, business and everything else is a challenge I truly enjoy...almost every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a loving home but with no faith and no religious teaching. In high school I decided I wanted to go to a church. My mother helped me find all the local churches in the yellow pages. At that same time I met a lovely LDS family and it was due to their example that I became interested in the Mormon Church. I was baptized when I was 16 years old and have never looked back since; it was the best thing I have ever done in my life.

How I live my faith

A few years after being baptized I was able to serve a Spanish speaking mission in Honduras. To this day I miss Honduras and its people but I also enjoy serving locally as a Sunday School teacher. I LOVE teaching the gospel! The biggest ways in which my husband and I live our faith is by being active parents and good neighbours. We have many dear friends who live in our neighbourhood with whom we enjoy a very active social life. We are the only Mormons among our group of friends. We have lots of fun together and hopefully my family gives a good example of what a faith-filled home can be.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

I was so fortunate that when I decided to serve a mission my father, who is NOT a member of the Church, made a deal with me that when I finished my university degree he would fund my mission. So I fast-tracked my degree, doing courses throughout the summers and graduated when I was 20 years old. At 21 I served a mission which my generous father paid for. Thanks, Dad! Show more Show less
