Hi I'm Amy

I am a daughter and sister. I love studying, running, and being out-of-doors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Iowa and absolutely love the green landscape and intense thunderstorms. I am currently deferring my university education and loving serving as a missionary in Russia. I have been blessed with an amazing family who always makes me laugh. I love spending time with family and friends. I think Biology is fascinating and I love being out-of-doors. I love running, tennis, ping-pong, and Frisbee.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in a Latter-Day-Saint family gave me a wonderful opportunity to put one of my favorite Biblical scriptures to the test. John 7:17 says, "If any man will do [God's] will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself. " As I've prayed, studied the scriptures, followed the counsel of prophets, and striven to keep God's commandments, the promise in this verse has been fulfilled for me. I've seen how doing the things I've been taught really has brought me happiness. I've gained for myself a testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's true church. As I've prayed I've felt God's comfort and direction in my life and I've felt His love for me. By striving to keep God's commandments given to us through the scriptures and through His prophets, I've seen how I have been blessed with peace and joy. I am so grateful for the chance I have to be a member of His Church and share with others the joy I have thanks to my understanding of the gospel!

How I live my faith

I am grateful for the opportunity I have to spend a year and a half as a full-time missionary for the Church. I am able to share with people the message of God's love for us that has so blessed my life. Even though I will not always be a full-time missionary, I know it is so important to live my faith every day of my life. I do this by trying to be a Christ-like friend and by keeping His commandments. I pray daily and read from the scriptures so that I can be closer to God and Jesus Christ and so that I can have their guidance in my life. I am an active member of my congregation and have enjoyed various opportunities to teach and serve others.
