Hi I'm Ami

I'm an animal lover, a social worker, a wife, an East coast girl, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, Utah, lived my childhood years in California and my teen years in Philadelphia. I love everything about the East coast, well except for maybe the snow! I have five younger sisters who are my best friends. I met the man of my dreams in college and we have been married for six years. I have my master's degree in Social Work and I love what I do. I enjoy reading, watching movies, blogging, and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life. Sometimes I wonder why I am so lucky and blessed to have been born into this religion. Without my faith, I would be lost. I am a Mormon because the gospel just makes sense. Everything I do is based on my belief in God and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because this church has a living prophet who guides and directs my life. I find peace when I read the Book of Mormon. I find guidance when I attend the Temple. Just because I am spiritual and faithful does not mean challenges and trials will not come my way, but it does mean that I can find peace and comfort through Christ when they do. All of my life I have known that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the true church on this earth. However, sometimes I did not want to follow what I was being taught. There came a point where I could no longer live off of my parents testimonies, I had to gain my own. My testimony came slowly and surely. I had different experiences in my life that helped me know the truth. I continue to have those experiences.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is a lifestyle. Every Sunday I attend church and spend three hours learning about Christ's teachings. I also teach the 14 & 15 year old young women each Sunday. During the week I am able to meet with sisters in the ward that need help and I have some women who are assigned to visit me once a month (everyone does!). Once a month I attend an activity put on by the women's organization. My strongest support system are the friends I have made through out the church.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

YES!!! Isn't that the greatest news you have heard all day? I do believe that families will be together forever in heaven. My husband and I were sealed in the Washington D.C. Temple. Many of my family members were not able to witness my marriage because they are not members of the church. I would never have done that had I not believed that being sealed in the Temple meant I can be with my husband and family forever. Show more Show less
