Hi I'm Amy

I'm a senior at BYU-Idaho studying Marriage and Family studies. I'm from Apple Valley, CA.

About Me

I'm graduated from BYU-Idaho with a bachelors degree in Marriage and Family Studies. I love the outdoors. Hiking and Camping are my favorite hobbies outdoors. Indoors, I love to watch movies and spend time with family members and friends. I love to travel. I have only been to Spain, outside of the U.S, but I hope to go to many more places and see the wonders of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. I have always known that this is where I need to be. I gained my testimony at an early age and it is still growing and i try to strengthen it on a regular basis through reading the scriptures and the talks (speeches) of the leaders of the church. I know that Jesus Christ is the head of this church and that he guides and directs the leaders of the church. I know that He speaks to and guides our prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I also know that many years ago He and Heavenly Father came to Joseph Smith and through time gave him the keys and authority to restore His church on the earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that reading it brings you closer to Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. I also know that by reading the Book of Mormon we can receive guidance for our own lives. Because I have felt a confirmation by the Holy Ghost of all these things, I know that they are true.

How I live my faith

I am a visiting teacher and I do my best at it. On a daily basis I say my prayers and I read my scriptures. It is challenging but I also try to be a good example to those around me. I currently help out in the nursery at church. These children range from ages 18 months to 3 years old. It is so fun to play with and teach these cute children of our Heavenly Father.
