Hi I'm Amy S.

I love people, being active, serving, and having fun. I'm a mom, wife, sister, daughter and friend. I am also a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Mom of 3 kids. I have been married for 15 years to my wonderful husband. I am a stay at home mom even though I have my degree. I feel like it is important to be there for your kids especially when they come home from school. I really enjoy working out at the gym and staying active. I love making quilts and being creative. Recently I just made some curtains. I also love camping, hiking, reading good books, and scuba diving. My husband and I just became certified scuba divers and it is so awesome to be able to see what's under the water. It is like a whole different world and so beautiful. We love spending time together as a couple when we get a chance and to share in going on adventures whenever we can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the fullness of Christ's gospel was restored to the earth and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His church on earth. The only reason I know this is because I prayed about it. I have not always been a member of this church. I grew up Presbyterian. The missionaries came and taught my family when I was 10 and I was baptized at 11 years old. Just a few blessings I receive from being a member of Christ's church is that I can be with my husband and children for eternity even after death. That alone is one of the biggest blessings in my life. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus in the grove of trees and he was told to restore Christ's church and priesthood to the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book of scripture and it goes hand in hand with the Holy Bible. We are all God's children and He loves each and everyone of us so much that we cannot even fathom or understand how much he treasures us as His children. I know that this earth life is a time to prepare to meet God. By being a part of this church I am preparing for eternity and have the opportunities to serve more fully in the temple and help others achieve their eternal goals as well. I am so grateful for my Savior. He atoned for someone as insignificant as me. I am humbled that He loves me so much to die for me. I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Prayer truly works. Ask God and he will tell you the truth of all things through the power of the Holy Ghost. I firmly believe that.

How I live my faith

I am a Young Women's President at church which means I am in charge of the girls 12 to 18 year olds at church. I really enjoy working with the youth. It brings me great happiness to know that I am helping these young girls grow up to be great women. My daughter is 12 and I am so glad I get to be with her on activities that we do and I feel like I am growing closer to her being her Young Women leader as well. The calling I have is really a blessing to my life. I enjoy watching the girls grow and seeing them be successful in their lives. I also really enjoy my friendships with other women at church and not in my church as well. I feel a closeness to them and I feel very blessed to have them be a part of my life. I strive to be the best person I can be. I try to be loving, kind, and compassionate to those I come in contact with. Of course I do have my weaknesses like everyone else but I try to be understanding of others differences and weaknesses as well because I know I wouldn't want to be judged because of mine for sure. I am trying to be a positive influence to others as well.
