Hi I'm Amy Abbott

I grew up in Southeast Texas which makes me a huge football fan. I am off to serve in the Florida Tampa Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to dance and perform and play volleyball. I love a good karaoke session and quoting movies. I have attended college and I am studying entrepreneurship. My dream goal is to work for Disneyworld, the happiest place on earth.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother is a convert to the church and she has the strongest faith I have ever seen. My mother has raised all of her children with that same faith. I have learned through Her example that this gospel can strengthen me in every aspect of my life from public speaking to showing charity and love towards others. Through my daily scripture study and prayers I know my purpose in this life and I know what God expects of me. My purpose is to be happy and live as an example to others and God expects me to share the gospel and let the light of Christ shine through me.

How I live my faith

Currently I am serving in the Florida tampa mission. I chose to serve a mission because I see the blessings that families recieve and I want nothing more than my family to recieve those blessings as well. I have served in many capacities in the church from visiting teaching assignments to the sports co-chair. I have enjoyed organizing events for people to enjoy to grow in faith and friendships.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Amy Abbott
Learning to dress and speak modestly requires a level of obedience. Chastity also requires obedience. When we start with the little things, it is easier to be obedient to the bigger things. It is important to be consistent when teaching children. Modesty is a stepping stone to chastity. It is not something we start when our children are eight or twelve. It should be something we start from the beginning. Show more Show less
