Hi I'm Amy Brasier

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I am a mother and a wife. I met my husband in college and have been married for over 16 years. We are in the middle of raising 4 great kids, ages 6-14. Most of our activities revolve around our kids, from soccer games, cross country, dance, camping, biking, hiking, skiing and enjoying the beautiful state we live in. We love to travel together and experience new places for the first time. In my spare time (which isn't usually much!) I run a portrait photography business. I love to be creative and preserve memories at the same time. I also run a bit and find it to be a great stress reliever! My husband and I also own a bakery in addition to his full time job and some consulting work. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom since having our first child. My family is my greatest blessing and I'm constantly trying to be a better mother and wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life. My parents were divorced when I was very young and my childhood was quite chaotic. The gospel has been the one constant thing in my life. Through my challenges in life as a young person and an adult, I have always felt my Heavenly Father's love for me, and I try to show my love for HIm by following his commandments. It's important to me to raise my children with this foundation so they will feel this love and be able to rely on their faith through their challenges in life now and in the future. I find peace in prayer, scripture study, and in my Savior Jesus Christ. I can't imagine how difficult it would be to maneuver through life without knowing these things.

How I live my faith

One thing we decided early on that our family does is make Sunday a special day. We try to spend time together without the normal distractions of TV, video games, shopping, birthday parties or sports. The neighbor kids soon learned that Sunday was "family" day and that they'd have to wait until the next day to play at our house, etc. Sundays have been some of the greatest times for our family. I love to watch my kids interact with one another and find things to do to entertain themselves on these days. We do a lot of things that may seem unique to others but it's all for the purpose of building strong family ties and making our home a place of refuge.
