Hi I'm Amy

I'm a homemaker, a wife, & a mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a degree in interior design -- which I love -- from Brigham Young University. I am most excited about being a wife and a mother of three great kids, ages 12,13, and 15 -- two boys and a girl. My husband and I met at BYU and were married in San Diego almost 16 years ago. We both grew up in large, close-knit Mormon families so we knew from the get-go that our highest priority would be our family. I love staying home -- being home when my kids get home from school, cooking dinner, baking bread. Could I BE any more of a stereotype?! I also struggle to keep up with the laundry, avoid cleaning my bathrooms by writing on my blog, lose my temper sometimes, and am still sitting in my pajamas right now. It's after noon. I'm not perfect. Life isn't always idyllic, but I'm happy. I do my best to love and serve others and trust in my Heavenly Father and things usually fall into place.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church, but I think every life-time member comes to a crossroads at some point where we have to decide for ourselves if we believe what we've always been taught or not. I'm a Mormon because I DO BELIEVE. I believe that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and who loves each one of us more than we know. I believe that my Savior, Jesus Christ, lives. That He atoned for my sins and that He is the only way I will return to my Heavenly Father again. I believe that my marriage can be eternal -- that the relationship I so enjoy with my husband in this life will carry on after death. I believe in eternal families. I believe that true happiness if found in serving others and trying to emulate my Savior. Mostly, I'm a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ, restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith, is a gospel of joy and hope. It feels good to know that my life has purpose and meaning.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by raising righteous children. By teaching my children to be good and kind and obedient I feel like I'm helping to pave the way to a bright tomorrow in the church and in the community. I am currently serving as the president of the church's program for young women ages 12 to 18 in our congregation. I love working with young people! Their testimonies and the strength of their character are an inspiration to me.
