Hi I'm Amy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful husband and 2 terrific young children. After a number of years as a RN, I decided shortly after our first born to hang up the stethoscope and be home for them. This was a difficult decision of course, but after some deep thought and prayer I knew it was the best decision I could have made. I now can’t imagine doing it differently and am so happy that I can be there for my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised within the Mormon religion. My parents are active, faithful members and a great example to me, but there comes a day when you can no longer ride on the coat tail of your parents. I moved away from home to attend school and later had my own apartment and worked full time, then onto my own home and family. In all the years since moving away, I have never felt like I was missing or wanting for anything. I have remained active and faithful away from the influence of family or friends back home. I know I have a Heavenly Father who loves me. He sent His only Begotten Son to atone for my sins and become my Savior. And I know that this earthly life is not the reward but the test and how I live my life here and now will affect me for all eternity. I feel the influence of the Savior in my life daily and I could never deny the things my parents taught me early on or the personal testimony that has grown inside me. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

The most wonderful part of this faith is that we not only come together each week on Sundays to worship, but that each day and each part of our lives conveys what we believe on a religious level. Prayer, scripture study, clean language, and modest clothing is not reserved for the Sabbath alone. Paying a full and honest tithe is not for just when it is convenient. Caring for and visiting the women from church is not a random and thoughtless act. Teaching my children and being an example of a Christ-like life is not sporadic. Real faith equals action. With true conversion comes a desire to live life as the Savior has taught us to live. How I live is a reflection of my beliefs. I am not, however, perfect and do make mistakes, but I also understand that because of Christ's atoning sacrifice I can repent and make things right again. This is how I live my faith. I try each day to serve, love, and teach, and when I fall below the mark I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who will allow me to make it right, and try again.
