Hi I'm Amy

I'm a cherished wife, a lucky mom, one grateful individual, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, let's see. I am married to one amazing guy. He's my best friend and the reason I smile every morning. He is a teacher, and I am a proud, stay-at-home mom. Heaven sends us many miracles to make it all work. We have five spunky, gorgeous, smart, entertaining, and exceptionally good kids. I spend my days cleaning, cooking, and driving; but I also spend my days talking, loving, listening, laughing, discovering, playing, and relishing. I have been so blessed. Me, myself and I? Well, I read. I build friendships. I try new recipes. I aspire to write, and I journal. I plan inexpensive vacations. I talk to God a lot. I let Him lead me. I dance in the living room. I create lists, and then check them off. I visit my Oma. And, I vow, one day, to leave my mark on the world in an unforgettable way. Until then, I am just grateful to be simply, and happily, living.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I truly believe in the teachings found in the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon was brought about through the power of God and that it is Holy Scripture. It has been a personal guide for me, a source of comfort and hope, and a great teacher. It testifies of our Savior, Jesus Christ, in such a profound way. In following His teachings found within the Book of Mormon and Bible I have been strengthened, my character has been refined, and my testimony in Him and His redeeming power has become sure. I am a Mormon because everything that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints offers has brought me closer to my God. I am a Mormon because I have felt that unmistakable feeling that only comes from the Holy Ghost, testifying to me of truth.

How I live my faith

I pray each morning and each night, thanking God for my blessings and asking for His presence to be near my family and I. I pray in gratitude over each meal. When my heart is down, I sing His hymns. I look for His hand in my life and seek His direction. I smile at my neighbors. I serve when I see a need. I find a purpose in each of my days, no matter how identical they were to the day before. I read about my Savior. I teach my children about Him. And, I strive to follow His teachings. I pay tithing. I fast. I teach others, and glean from their examples. I let others teach me. I repent. I learn. And, I strive to be a better person from one moment to the next. I love my kids. Immensely. I listen to prophets. I follow their counsel. I am loyal and loving to my husband. I keep my home full of good things. I listen to the Spirit. I am kind to others. I bite my lip. I compliment. I endure. I rely on Christ. I read from the scriptures daily. I find things to be grateful for. I am honest. And, I let my belief in a heaven, in a Savior, and in a loving Father direct my daily life, my daily perspective.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Read about Him in the scriptures. Learn to believe and trust in Him. Try out His promises. Act on His commandments and then just wait and see. Your life will be blessed and your faith in Him will grow. Rely on Him in prayer. Talk to Him. Listen for His answers. He will never leave you alone. He is a loving God. He wants to bless you. He wants to teach you. Show more Show less
