Hi I'm Amy

I teach and play piano, I'm a wife and mother of 4, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I feel my life is pretty ordinary. Nothing real special to set me apart. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband who supports me, who loves and adores our 4 children. I enjoying being able to stay at home and be a mother. Everything seems to interest me and I find it rewarding to be about to fix things myself. I'm constantly looking up DIY projects. Cooking and crafts have interested me from a young age and now I involve my children. I have been playing the piano since I was 10. It wasn't something that came easily, I had to work at it. Now I've been teaching my love of the piano for the past 15 years. Once my husband and I began our family, we needed some additional income to make ends meet and teaching piano lessons helped. It came to be a neccessary task when the economy plunged and lay-offs were hitting everyone (for us, three times). I know there are numberous cases just like us. It was nice to have a source of peace, knowing that some money would come in, even if my husband was out of work. A couple years ago my husband and I swapped roles and I re-entered the work place while he stayed at home with the kids and went to job interviews. That experience made me appreciate the time I had when I was at home with my children, verse before when I envied my husband getting to leave home and go to work. I know there is a time and season for everything and everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and needed to find out for myself if this was the gospel for me. Like everyone I had my agency to choose if I would continue to live out the gospel. Growing up I felt comfortable in this church and it was the easy choice for me. It wasn't until in my early 20's when my parents divorced I began to question how I was raised. I had this image in my mind on how my life was going to go and other peoples choices threw me for a loop. My faith grew with the knowledge from the scriptures, the Book of Mormon helped me know that even though others close to you choose to follow a different path our Heavenly Father loves them just the same and I should continue to love them too. I have learned that it isn't my place to judge others, just love them.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the youth in our church, specifically the young women. Getting to rub shoulders with these amazing girls, helps keep me feeling young. I enjoy doing service projects with them in the community and yearly girls camp (I don't even like camp, but with them it's doable). To see the challenges that the youth have to deal with in this day and age is beyond difficult. They pull together and support each other from modesty, virtue, and integrety, that is a great thing to get to see. It is a wonderful example for my daughter who looks up to these girls and can see good role models in them.
