Hi I'm Amy Washburn

I'm a student, a sister and a daughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have finished my first year of college, and loved every second of it. I love reading, and am easily lost in a good book. I enjoy bike rides, and being outside. I have hiked one 14er with my dad. Family is very important to me. I love my family very much. I am the youngest of six kids. We have it split even in our family. Three boys and three girls. I grew up in California and then moved to colorado my sophmore year of high school. I love California but claim Colorado. Moving changed my world and gave me the best chance to grow that I have ever had. While living in Colorado I learned how important this Gospel is to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been greatly blessed by being born into this church. My parents taught me the Gospel and at a young age I had the desire to know it. A big part of me wanting to know more was seeing the light that came over my siblings when they shared their feelings about the Gospel. I learned about the Gospel at church on Sundays but that wasn't enough. I felt i needed to do more, and have. I have read the Book of Mormon a few times and cannot deny the spirit i feel when reading it. I have studied Joseph Smith and know him to be a prophet. Everything that I have learned has felt right. I also have gained a real relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. That relationship I have gained is the biggest reason I am a Mormon. I don't think I could know them as well in any other Gospel/Church. I get to know them personal for myself, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

At this time in my life i am in college, and working hard to get good grades. This is one way I live my faith, by working to gain an education. I also make good goals to help me improve in weak areas in my life. I try to do service for others around me, and stay positive. I am honest, or at least I try my hardest to be. I try to be kind to those around me and lift others that are down. I study my scriptures, and go to church each Sunday. I keep myself pure and clean staying away from situations that can tempt me to do things i know are wrong. I share what I believe, and try to follow promptings to do good when they come.
