Hi I'm Amy

I am a writer, a sister, a world traveler and food enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college graduate who has the opportunities to delve in my passion for writing. I write for a number of clients on a freelance basis and when I'm not typing away, you can find me exercising, traveling, having a girls night out or laughing around the dinner table with my family. I am a part of a family that supports one another through the good and bad times. It only makes sense that God would make it possible for my family to be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up in the LDS church, there came a time in my life where I needed to know for myself if it was true or not. Rather than leaning on the beliefs of my parents or role models, I went straight to the source myself. I read the Book of Mormon for days on end and I prayed to my Heavenly Father for answers. I was able to learn for myself that the Book of Mormon was true, and I feel the Spirit testify of its truthfulness every time I read the book and live the principles taught by Jesus Christ. There are many sources of happiness in this world, but I have only found true joy, joy that is able to withstand life's trials, through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

First and foremost, I make sure to spend the time each day to nourish myself spiritually. This always includes daily prayer and scripture study. When I make sure to incorporate these practices into my daily life, I feel better inspired and aided in ways I can improve myself. It is such a fulfilling feeling to know that I am continually able to try and live to the best of my abilities. When I fall short, Jesus Christ has made a way that I can improve upon myself without feeling shame. In the church, I work with women from ages 18 and older in helping increase their personal faith and righteousness, as well as the faith and righteousness of their families, and lend a hand of comfort and assistance during times of need. This is done by meeting together each Sunday to discuss gospel principles, having monthly planned activities, working in a program called "Visiting Teaching" in which each woman is able to spend time with others on a monthly basis and by serving those who are going through rough patch. It is awe-inspiring to see the power and influence each woman holds within herself, especially with the help of Jesus Christ in her life.
