Hi I'm Amy

I love being a wife & mother, visiting museums, teaching children and decorating my world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three daughters and a great husband. We love to go boating, read books aloud and play board games. I enjoy substitute teaching over at the local elementary, creating music & doodling in my free time. Someday I'm going to take banjo & art lessons.

Why I am a Mormon

I continually read the Book of Mormon. I try to live the Gospel. I go to church every Sunday. And I have prayed to know if what I am doing is right & true. I feel the influence of the Holy Ghost testify both in my heart and mind that it is. I desire to live my life in a way that will continually enable the Holy Ghost to be with me. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, reading the scriptures, praying to my Heavenly Father, serving those around me & recognizing blessings from heaven makes me happy. This is the fruit of the Spirit. I know that this is the true church because by living the teachings, I feel whole. I feel that I am in good standing with God & my fellow man when I live the Gospel. I feel hope & assurance that when I fall short I can use the power of Christ's Atonement to repent & get back on the right track. I also feel hope & assurance that through Christ there is good in this world. By living His Gospel I find light in the darkness & have a brightness of hope for my life & future.

How I live my faith

I absolutely love to teach songs about the gospel to the children in Primary. There is nothing better than to feel the spirit as they sing each week. My role as mother and wife is the most important for me. I feel that I can be an influence for good in this world by doing the small and simple things I do in my home every day (i.e., preparing wholesome meals, praying as a family & planning fun activities). Keeping my family's life in order & creating a positive environment in our home takes up most of my time and energy. I have hope that by focusing my time here, I am helping my children make a good start to their lives & blessing generations to come.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

My husband and I work as a team in creating a positive family environment. It's not a 50/50 division of effort, but a 100% effort on both our parts. I have dedicated my time to be at home with our kids so that I can personally care for their well-being. I think it's very important to lead by example & be a constant presence in their lives. As a couple, we decided that my husband's career would be enough to provide for the temporal needs of our family. He does a great job not only providing for our temporal needs, but also providing spiritual guidance & support to me & our children. He is also very good at dividing work & home life. I feel very blessed to be living with an ideal home situation where we have both a mother & father helping to rear our children. Show more Show less
