Hi I'm Amy

I want to be a child advocate. I can't get enough of criminal TV series. I love to laugh. And I'm Mormon.

About Me

I love to laugh! And in my family of six children there is always something to laugh about. Basically my family is all that I am. When I was 8-years-old my father suddenly passed away from an unknown heart problem which left my amazing mom to raise us children all on her own. But even though there was always that lurking tragedy in our past, it never seemed to really detract from the fun and the love in our family. It was during long road trips around the United States that I developed a love to travel. That love eventually led me to moving to Germany during my freshman year of college at Brigham Young University Provo to work as a nanny. It also probably played a role in me deciding to serve a mission for my church.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I am a Mormon because I have never heard, seen or felt anything that made me want to not be. But Rather I have experienced so much that makes me want to be a better Mormon. I grew up in a home where on both sides of the family we have generations and generations of Latter-day Saints. My parents established our family on faith, love, prayer, forgiveness, scriptures and laughter. I have always loved being at home because there is a feeling inside it that I can't ever find in the "outside world". I have always been taught that just like I have a father on earth who loves me, I also have a Father in Heaven who's love is eternal. In my home stories of Jesus Christ's life and death were told with as much conviction of truth as stories of my grandparents life. And Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ were discussed as just a fact in history. I grew up never really doubting if these things and more were true because I never felt that they weren't. I loved my family, I loved my friends, and I loved going to church. As I've gotten older I have often knelt in prayer and asked Heavenly Father to confirm my seemingly simple testimony. I haven't felt the earth shake in response and no angel has ever visited me, but I have been filled with a peace and a hope that has given me the strength to continue on day after day. I know with my whole heart that the

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to live my faith just by loving everyone. Cheesy, I know. But to me the best way to show others that I truly am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is through my actions. Yes, we have a lot of "rules"- no drinking, wearing modest clothing, going to church every Sunday, etc. But these "rules" are now who I am. And I love living by these standards every single day of my life because they bring me confidence and happiness that I don't think I could find anywhere else.
