Hi I'm Amy

I'm a writer at heart, I'm a mother and a wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a stay-at-home mother of four amazing kiddos who keep me on my toes! I love to write fiction and have a deep appreciation for books and art. I love nature, but am a lousy gardener, which is why I feel so blessed to live in the Northwest where such amazing natural beauty surrounds me. When the weather is cold, we love to play board games of all kinds as a family. Basically, I love to spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Christ. This is something that while I was taught this as a child, I was also taught to search, ponder, and pray - to come to my own conclussion. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I full-heartedly believe that it is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ's ministries here on this earth. I'm a Mormon because I know we are all children of our loving Father in Heaven and that He loves us and knows us completely and we can live with Him again as families. I have done a lot of scholarly searching and pondering, and what I know isn't only found in a classroom - it is felt in my heart. Heavenly Father has wrapped me in comfort on my darkest days, has answered my prayers (usually not in the way I anticipated), and has never abandoned me. I don't always understand the pattern he is building for me in my life until after the fact, but the pattern is undeniably there. I am so profoundly greatful that the Lord loves us enough to continue to have prophets today to give us continual revelation, that he has not forgotten or forsaken his children here on this earth.

How I live my faith

I don't often share my spiritual beliefs on "other" social networking sites, mainly because what I believe I hold very dear to my heart. I am in no way ashamed or embarrassed, just very conscious of the large rainbow of friends who come from quite literally every walk of life. Perhaps it's a fault of mine, but I know that because many of my friends don't feel or understand the way I do, I keep it to myself, enjoying in their friendship without the perceived pressure of religious tention. I am always open and willing to answer any questions friends, co-workers, or family have about my faith. That being said, all of my friends know that I am very active in my Mormon faith. I love the amazing opportunites I've been given over the years to teach children of all ages about the love our Father in Heaven has for them, that they are loved for who they are, no matter what. I think it is because of these opporrtunities that I discovered how much I love teaching, and am continuing to educate myself so I can be a full-time teacher.
