Hi I'm Amy

I love crafts, music, and my family. I'm an academic advisor, favorite aunt, and a listening friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After graduating from college I have worked for a non-profit and am currently an academic advisor. I love crafting, playing the piano, hanging with my family and friends, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. I grew up with an awareness of and closeness to God. Even as a child my heart would fill with love, light, and truth as I was taught by my parents and as I participated in church. I remember one time when I was about 8 years old my family was gathered for family night. Our lesson was on how our families could be eternal. I can't remember every detail of that lesson now, but I remember the feeling that I had in my heart that it was true. I knew I could live with my family forever. Since that time, I've recognized, over and over again, many truths that God teaches that are for everyone. I learned at a very young age that we are all God's children. No matter where we live, what we look like, what we do for a living. He loves us. He knows us. He wants to bless us. And He wants us to be happy. For me, there is so much peace, purpose, and hope in knowing that! The Gospel of Jesus Christ has taught me how to be happy and how to share that happiness with others. And I love that. When I do what I know I should do and I serve other people I feel full of joy and I feel free. I love that feeling!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating in my local congregation. I go to church on Sunday. I attend a weekly scripture study during the week. I look for ways to serve in my community. Currently, I help to make sure that all of the women in my congregation receive monthly visits from other women in the congregation and that they are watched over and cared for. My life feels full and purposeful when I'm engaged in good activities and surrounded by great people.
