Hi I'm Amy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife,mom and gigi ( grandma). I have three children, well I usually say four children and my oldest is 51! Meaning my husband never grew up, but that's ok I never have either.My children are one of my greatest loves! I have four grandchildren who I adore. They light up my world. My husband is a rodeo announcer and a team roping announcer. I was a paramedic. We worked 48 hours on then had four days off. You can imagine with the two of our schedules that we rarely saw one another. I made the decision to let my paramedic credentials expire so I could spend more time with my family. It was one of the best decisions I have made. We spend a lot of time traveling. Reed will be driving the semi full of cattle and I will be following with the living quarters trailer. Sometimes we get to go in the same rig, which I love so we can just visit. All of our children have now left home, which leaves just Reed and I. You would think that with just the two of us life would slow down just a bit, not so.Our calendar stays pretty full due to Reed's work schedule. We end up spending more time in our living quarters trailer than we do our home. Quite a while back I learned how to time at the team ropings to just give the timers a break. That worked in to several jobs during the year. I recently received my timers card to time PRCA rodeo's. Some may say that I lead a pretty interesting life with an interesting background of work, but my greatest joys in life have come from my family.

Why I am a Mormon

At a very young age, 11, I wanted to know for myself if the church was true. I knew the rest of my family believed it was, but I wanted to know personally. I prayed long and hard to have the answers I longed for. Sure the church taught people to be kind to one another and to live a good life but was it really true? I received my answer, it is true! I can never deny the sweet peace that came over me. I am so thankful for the knowledge that families are eternal. They don't end when someone dies. It all makes so much sense that a loving Heavenly Father would give us that opportunity to have our families with us forever. My mother and one of my brothers have passed away. I look forward to the day I will get to be with all of my family again. The saying families are eternal is not something that is said to pacify us in times of grief. Families ARE eternal, a gift given to us by our Heavenly Father. How grateful I am to my Savior Jesus Christ who not only showed us how to live but died for us so we could repent and have the opportunity to live with our families once again.

How I live my faith

I have the awesome calling in my area to be over the young women ages 12-18. It is a big responsibility. There are 36 of them. I love being with these girls! Each of them is so different and yet so much alike. I love just hanging out with them... sometimes I forget that I'm quite a bit older than them and can act just as silly as they do. We have had so much fun whether it be service projects, learning homemaking skills, going to girls camp, having lunch at a leaders home or just being silly playing games or putting edible chocolate facial masks on each other! Of course there is a spiritual side too. We have come to know our Savior more by sharing stories of His life and example. We have practiced putting His teachings into our everyday life so that we can become more like Him. I am not perfect by any means. I am however willing to continue to try to be more like My Savior. Everyday is a whole new canvas just ready and waiting for me to better myself. Thanks to my calling with the young women I have another cheering section helping me to be better than I was the day before!
