Hi I'm Amy

I'm a multi-taskin' mama and wife. I love good food, music and traveling. I'm a Mormon

About Me

When I think of who I am, two things come to mind; a mother and wife. These are the two roles I cherish most in my life and feel I best succeed in. I also work from home doing the booking for my husband's business, which I feel lucky to be able to do, although at times it is a struggle to fullfil the role of a mom and employee adequately. I love to travel, cook, listen to music, and be silly. I enojoy spending time outdoors; hiking, watching my son's soccer games, running and soaking up sunshine. I love baseball; GO RED SOX! I love dumb jokes, like the kind you would find on popsicle sticks or taffy wrappers. I love singing to my kids or really loud in the car, but get super nervous singing in front of people. Although I love being a mother and always will, even when my kids are grown, I look forward to being an empty nester and traveling with my husband. I believe happiness is a choice and that if you want to be happy all you need to do is make that choice.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a memeber of the chucrch all my life, but did not actively participate in its teachings for about 10 years. Some time after I had my first child I realized that something was missing in my life, even though I was happy, had a great marriage and a beautiful little boy. I kept going back to what I was taught as a child and felt as though I needed the gospel in my life in order to be complete and help me raise my precious child in todays tumultuous world. I began going to church again and slowly becoming more and more active; accepting callings as a teacher with the young children in the church and discontinuing things I had been doing that were contrary to the teachings of the church. I began feeling happier and better able to handle trials that came my way. I noticed positive changes in myself and my son, who was coming to church with me. Slowly, my husband , who was not a member began coming to church with us. After losing his mother to cancer, I was able to share the knowledge I had gained from the church that families can be toghether forever; that our Heavenly Father loves us and has a plan for us to be with our loved ones for eternity. My husband was baptized less than a year later. Since his baptism our family has become even closer. I know that our Heavenly Father gave us families to help us become better people, to support us, love us and help us in times of need and sadness. My family is my most precious possesion and because of the teachings of the church I KNOW that if I do what is necessary I can be with them forever.

How I live my faith

I taught the 4-5 year olds in our church for about 3 years. I loved being with the children and found they often taught me with their examples of trust, love and faith. I enjoyed the simple lessons and found they helped refresh my memory of things I had forgotten during my inactivity. Now, I lead music in a class for the women in our church. I love to sing but am terrified of singing in front of people and have no experience in leading music, so this is both fun and challenging for me. I love that the church provides opportunities for us to grow and refine our talents. I also go visit a few of the women in my ward once a month. I have found this to be one of the highlights of my month. It allows me the opportunity to get to know these women better and learn and grow from their knowledge and experience. As a young mother, I appreciate any opportunity to talk to other moms and get insight on raising my son and daughter.
