Hi I'm Amy Lynne Jacques

A Southern girl who aspires to be an Illustrator for kid's picture books. I'm currently serving in the Scotland/Ireland Mission!

About Me

I always look for love in everything and everyone. I love sharing my testimony. I'm on an LDS mission in Scotland/Ireland. I will return in April of 2015. I cook a mean lasagna, but it's actually quite nice. I love to dance, especially swing and two-step. I love climbing trees. I like dogs better than cats, but if you have a cat that will let me scratch it's belly--they're okay with me. I really hate buttercream frosting on cake. Whipped frosting all the way. I want to go to college and study English to teach English as a second language to those who want to learn how to broaden their opportunities. I want to minor in Illustration to do children's picture books. But first! I want to do my best on my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that my Lord Jesus Christ lives. I believe that there is a prophet on the earth today that is a seer and revelator, and who leads me by the spirit in these modern days. I know that he is a direct connection to God. I know that Joseph Smith guided us to the Restored Gospel and that because of him, I know of the Plan of Salvation. The standards that were taught to me as a child have kept me happy and safe as I have grown into a young woman. The church taught me to respect myself and others--including other religions. The importance of family is stressed like no other in this Gospel. When we get married, we do not say "till death do us part"--because life does not end after death. We believe that families that be together forever. THAT is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I used to attend Mission Prep weekly. I tried to attend other Institute classes such as Book of Mormon class and Gospel Doctrine when I can. I am that weird person that likes to sit in the very front row in sacrament... and every other Sunday school class. Previously, I was the Ward Transportation Director and helped those without transportation get rides to church. I also taught Gospel Principles for the investigators/anyone who wanted to learn about the basic principles of our faith. Back when I was in a family ward, instead of a singles ward, I would help out with the Young Women/Men's activities as much as possible--planning and coordinating the kids. NOW--I'm a missionary and I go out everyday to teach those who are willing to listen. I study my scriptures for an hour every morning, then study another hour with my companion and make lesson plans. Then from 11am-9pm I am out street contacting, teaching, chapping--trying to find those who are willing to listen to the message of the Restored Gospel.
