Hi I'm Amy

I am a stay at home mom, a wife and a daughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i am a mom to 3 girls and 2 boys and a step mom to 3 boys. I will soon be a grandma. I am a stay at home mom. I worked in Special Education for 10 years as a paraprofessional. I absolutely loved my job and the kids I worked with. I would like to go back to school someday to become either a Physical Therapist or Occupational Therapist. I do not have a creative bone in my body, but do like to cross stich and would like to learn how to sew. We did a lot of camping growing up and would like to do that more as the kids get older.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to become a Mormon 2 years ago after some difficult family things. My husband was sick and our family was falling apart, or so it seemed. I was angry with God for the death of my sister After teachings by our wonderful Missionaries, we, as a family, decided to be Babtised. I came to understand the Plan of Salvation and forgave God for her death. I was able to find peace with my sister's death and see that she is where she is meant to be. I strive to someday get to where she is. I was lucky enough to be able to go to the Temple and Babtise her and other family members. Knowing I can do that for them brings me joy. I also love the family history aspect and have enjoyed doing family trees and learning about my ancestors.

How I live my faith

My first calling in the Church was a Visiting Teaching Supervisor. I love the way the Church members look out for each other and help those in need. Getting to know families through Visiting Teaching and Home Teaching is wonderful, especially for new members. I taught Primary children for almost 2 years. I started out with 6 and 7 yr olds, then moved onto 7 and 8 yr olds. It was a wonderful blessing teaching kids the lessons and helping to get them ready for Babtism. Seeing how excited they were made it even more worthwhile. Recently my husband and myself were made Ward Missionary Workers. It will be an interesting and wonderful teaching experience for us, as we are still learning about the workings of the Church. We are in the process of learning the workings of this calling. It will be an exciting adventure for us.
