Hi I'm Amy

I love playing with nieces and nephews. I love photos of family and nature. I'm an RN. I'm married to my sweetheart. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving family vacations, playing word games and card games on school nights with my parents, and hanging out with friends or making occasional funny movies with them. I'm working as a registered nurse and I enjoy date nights on the weekends and lunch dates on weekdays with my husband. We mostly like playing games with friends, watching movies, and going out for pizza, Mexican food, or something new. I like reading good books, playing the harp, and have a goal to keep a journal, which needs some work. I like talking with my sisters on the phone and going running. I recently started experimenting more in the kitchen having fun making and eating new chicken dishes, chocolate chip cookies, and whole wheat bread. At work I enjoy my associations with patients and coworkers and wear my running shoes as there is never a dull moment.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. It is because of my Savior Jesus Christ that I can have a meaningful life with purpose. He makes it possible for me to live life with more faith and less fear. I know that the Lord hears me pray and cares about me, as He does all of us. Prayer is a big part of my life. I feel so much gratitude for this gift that our Father in Heaven has given us that we can pray to Him. I know that every day I need His help. I am thankful that I can pray and ask for His help, comfort, guidance, and just to feel His Spirit with me. I know that through Jesus Christ, my husband and I and family can be together after death. I'm thankful that God blessed us with families and with a way for us be families forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by regularly reading the scriptures, giving my best efforts at home and at work, and trying to act on a kind thought. On Sundays I teach a children's class on the New Testament for 8-9 year olds. As I believe that my family is a gift from God, I live my faith by trying to strengthen ties with my family members who are 100's of miles away with a phone call, email, text, or postcard. My husband and I spend time talking together and eating what meals we can together so we strengthen our relationship and each other. We make each other laugh and smile, which brightens my day. I try to make our home a place where the Spirit of God can be by carefully choosing the media we let into our home, uplifting decorating, and choosing the words I say--keeping our home clean and tidy is a good idea too...which is an ongoing process for me...reminding me that everything in life is an ongoing effort. They say that life is a journey. I am so thankful for Thomas S. Monson's counsel "Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family" (http://lds.org/general-conference/2008/10/finding-joy-in-the-journey?lang=eng&query=finding+joy+journey). I am so thankful that the Lord gives us prophets in our day as well as those in ancient scripture. Their counsel helps me focus my life more on the gospel of Jesus Christ and better align my priorities.
