Hi I'm Amy Miller

I grew up in an Mormon family. I am a teacher at heart, and love working with children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have my Bachelors of Education but after life experiences I have chosen not to persue the teaching career. I am currently working with a company based in my hometown that assist individuals with special needs to become more independent and integrated into society: "Grow, Belong, Succeed" is our moto. I am the team leader for one of the after school care program for the Junior/ and High school students. And I love it! I was a substitute teacher in England for two years - where I developed a love for learning about different cultures, and people. I have been to Africa to volunteer in schools teaching English, and visiting the chid I sponsor through World Vision. My next adventure is to volunteer in Peru with schools & improving life for individuals with special needs. I love reading and writing about all the fun places I visit, and the wonderful people that I meet everyday :) I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, which helped me grow in the testimony I have today. Until about the age of 26, I constantly battled with the lack of self esteem. I never fit in with the others my age, and constantly found myself with people who would take advantage of me. I always prayed and read my scriptures, but I constantly questioned if it was helping. I made many mistakes and often wondered if I would ever be forgiven. It wasn't until I moved to England before I really began to understand what the church was all about. While there I had to rely more heavily on my Heavenly Father to get me through the toughest days. There were many hardships for me, but as I dove further into the gospel the light slowly shone through. I found that Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ really do listen, and know me. They even spoke to me through the others around me. Mormonism is about becoming more like Christ, and as I helped those around me, volunteered whenever I could, and participated in my classes I felt Heavenly Fathers love for me grow deeper in my heart. I could not live without the gospel in my life. I know that we can be forgiven and turn our lives around. I know that there is help that can be found for any trouble, worry, sorrow, joy, question I might have in the Book of Mormon (and Bible). I know there is a love and knowledge greater than our mind can comprehend that can be found through the spirit, and Mormon teachings.

How I live my faith

First and foremost the way I live my faith is by making sure that I pray constantly, read my scriptures everyday, and listen to uplifting music. I always make sure that I speak kind and encouraging words to others - and help them see what wonderful spirits they are, and that they are God's children. Although life is really busy I make time to go to the temple (inside or sitting on the grass) every month. I work with teenagers, and love to help them in their growing years by making sure they see the best in themselves, as I try to do with myself. I am a firm believer of how we are taught to do service for others, I seek opportunities to help those around me whenever I can. I am a Visiting teacher co-ordinator within my congregation. As part of a committee I help ensure that every female in my congregation feels welcome, and encouraged. Within my own community I help keep it clean, and participate in fundraisers (such as bottle drives, or clothing drives). I reach out to those around me whenever I can.

Are Mormons Christians?

Amy Miller
Mormons believe in the Godhead: God the Father, his Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost). We believe that they are three separate beings, working together as one Godhead. The definition of Christians is to believe in the teachings, and follow Jesus Christ, Mormon's do just that. One of the main principles of the teachings is to become like our Savior - Jesus Christ.
