Hi I'm Amy

I know all the words to every Taylor Swift song, and where to find true happiness in life. Oh, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student at the University of Utah, but have taken a short break while I serve a Mormon mission in Norway for 18 months. I have 4 brothers and 2 amazing sisters. I love the mountains, breakfast foods, chocolate and country music!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I want to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that this is HIS church that HE restored to the earth. HIS love for me helps me love others and to feel true joy as I go about the daily trials of life. I know that this is not just another church on the earth or a way of living - this is reality. Through Jesus Christ my happiness will not end. I can live in the presence of God again and live with my family - even after death.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to walk how Christ walked. I try to pattern my life exactly after Him. He went about serving others, helping them to know of the Love Heavenly Father has for them. I am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Norway and am doing just that. I spend my time serving others, teaching those who are willing to listen about how they can gain never-ending happiness and how they can return to live with God again.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Amy
Many people have asked me if women in the church are discriminated against or if I feel discriminated against. They tell me there is no equality among men and women. What do I say in response? Of Course There Is! As a woman in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I not only feel like I receive equal treatment as men, but I feel like I receive better respect and support than what the rest of the world has to offer women. I feel prized, precious, loved and divine. I am told over and over again that I am not just another girl, but that I am a daughter of God who deserves the best. I am a Mormon woman who loves a good chick-flick, studies dilligently in school, spends time with family, plays Taylor Swift songs on the guitar in her favorite pair of blue jeans... But I am also a princess. I am royally, and, when it comes to relationships, will not settle for anyone who treats me less than that. So is there equality with men and women in the church? You bett-cha there is! Show more Show less
