Hi I'm Amy

I love my family, friends, singing, chocolate, being outside, camping, bonfires, sand dunes, and Alaska. I AM A MORMON!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Sweden and I LOVE IT!!!! I absolutely love being a missionary. I am number 5 of 6 kids and I have 12 nieces and nephews who are my world. I love family. That is where I am at if people wonder, with my family. My HERO is my MAMA. I love helping people and making their load easier. I am a Nanny and I love children. I have yet to start college since I worked for a year instead. I had 5 weeks from the time I got my call to when I went to the MTC. My mission is going by so fast. I look forward to starting college when I get home and I think I want to study business to open up my own Daycare one day. Of course my mind changes more then the weather so we will see:) I love doing anything outside, fishing, camping, BBQing, and more! I love laughing...loudly;) and having a good time. I love going romping at Knik River and Jim Creek with my sister her husband kids and friends. I love my best friends so much. I love to try to paint. I love to organize and to make changes and rearrange things. I love to blab on about stuff haha. I love to talk on the phone. I love the gym and running and I LOVE swimming! I love Swedish and Sweden. I love EVERYTHING about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love the YSA ward and my home ward. I love church. Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I love shopping and going out to eat. Weirdly I love doing the dishes and having a clean kitchen. I love fashion and colors! I love being a daughter of my Heavenly Father who loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel has truly showed me how to become a better person. My mother is the perfect example of who I want to be one day. I hear throughout my days the constant reminders of a hymn or a scripture or the whispering from the Holy Ghost which would not be there if I were not a Mormon. I can see the effect of the gospel in my life and in my families life. I can see how testing and then living the commandments of God only make us better and that is my whole purpose on this earth. To become the best daughter, sister, friend, mother and child of God I can find my answers here. I am a Mormon because it gives me the most happiness and joy to know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me. I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who died just so that we ALL can return home to them one day. I am a Mormon because it is only possible through this church to receive the promises that I can be with my family for eternity. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it is without a doubt the true church of the LORD. He organized it when He was here on the Earth and through Joseph Smith it was restored. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that God himself with His son Jesus Christ came down to Joseph Smith and restored their church here for all of us so that we can enjoy all the blessings that they have in store for us. Only if we do our part. I love this gospel and that I can say I know that They live. It is all true and this is why I am Mormon!!!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going and doing. I know I am so far from perfect but I love trying to become better. I love others ideas knowing that mine are NOT always the right ones. I live my faith by living the standards. I try to be an example to my nieces and nephews knowing that they do look up to me and watch my every move. I live my faith by serving the Lord and going on a mission. Even after I am home I will NOT stop from trying to build up His church. I LOVE the temple and I try to go as much as it is possible to go. I know that through trying to follow the teachings from the modern day prophets I can learn the secrets of becoming refined in time to meet my Savior. I live my faith by smiling and having my light shine for everyone to see because I want to tell them what is making me happy. It is this church, this gospel, this knowledge that I have that my Savior lives and loves me and I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and that my family can be together forever! I live my faith by singing at the top of my lunges for my Lord! Showing Him that He is the world to me. I live my faith by serving other people and loving and taking care of my parents and family. I live my faith by trying to make the world a better place by sharing with them that there is hope and that one day we will all be made perfect and return home. I live my faith by going to church every week and renewing the promises I made with my Father in Heaven. This is how I live my faith. How do you live yours?
