Hi I'm Amelia

Born in Hartford Ct. 48 when I was baptized and that changed my life. Now I really know who Jesus and his Father are.

About Me

I am a mother of three child, one daughter and two sons. I am a grandmother of 9 grandchildren. I am a great grandmother of 9 great-grandchildren. I have moved around a lot. I have lived in Equador, Florida, Mexico, British West Indies, Connecticut, California, Nevada, Washington and now in Idaho. I love to do crafts, genealogy, go to classes at universities and colleges. I just love to learn new things. The best thing for me now is that my church is right across the street and it is good to look at the building and remember that it stands for, truth, fellowship and a good way of life. Now I really know who Jesus and the Father really are. I have two books of scriptures that teaches and testifies of Jesus Christ. There is no doubt in my mind that they teach the truth and also teaches who I am, a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father and Jesus is my brother.

Why I am a Mormon

I could never find a church that could interpret everything that was taught in the Bible and could explain all the scriptures. None of the many other churches, that I attended, really understand the complete Bible they could only teach from a few chapters and they all understood them differently. When I asked questions about the other chapters they told me I didn't have to understand or that I had to take it on faith. Now the teachers, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, can explain the meaning of all the chapters and verses. If they don't know the answer we have had prophets and still have a prophet that can call on Heavenly Father so we can know the truth of all things. We can also pray to Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, to find the answer and know the truthfulness of all things. We have a Prophet that can receive revelations from Heavenly Father. He is as true of a Prophet as any that are in the Old Testament. He is a Prophet equal to Peter and he also gets his knowledge form Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am so happy to know that I have a Savior and Father who love me and one day I will be able to stand in their presence. I have a family that can continue to be my family in Heaven. The Savior suffered, died and rose again so I can go back to my Heavenly Father with him as my Savior. Of course I have to do my part and follow him and do as he instructed in the scriptures. Try it you will like it.

How I live my faith

To be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a 24 hours and 7 days a week faith. That is why it is so wonderful. Saying your prayers in the morning helps keep your day in order and keeps you on the right path and working environment. Saying your prayers before eating helps me to know where my blessings come from. Saying my prayers in the evening helps me to Thank my Heavenly Father for all that I have. Having the Priesthood in my life lets me know that anytime I have a situation that I need Heavenly Father's hands to bless me, he is there. Our life is a life of service. That is the example that Jesus gave and now we must be his hands. I never feel lonely because I have friends that are only a phone call away when I need them and my friends know that I am only a phone call away, when they need me.
