Hi I'm Amy

I grew up in California. I live in Utah and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family! I have been happily married for 24 years and have 2 wonderful children who have brought much joy to my life. I love to sing, dance, camp, read, and spend time with my family. I love coconut, the ocean, sunshine, blue skies, and starry nights!

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't always a Mormon. When I was a small child growing up, we searched for truth for several years, attending many different religions. I remember the first time I attended a Mormon church, I felt like I was "home". I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is where I find truth, peace, comfort, and pure joy. I have also come to know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is very real and is for everyone! He died for my sins. He also died for my pains, sorrows, sicknesses, and heartaches. Through Christ's Atonement, I can repent, be forgiven and also change for the better, and overcome anything that might keep me from being truly happy. Ultimately, the Atonement makes it possible for me to be with my family forever and to return and live with my Father in Heaven someday. I would not trade the peace that comes from that knowledge for anything in this world!!

How I live my faith

I work with the youth at church and in my employment. It is one of the most rewarding things in my life. The youth today are amazing people with so much to give to this world! Sometimes all they need is to know that someone cares about them! I love to teach them and discuss with them the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ and where they can turn for peace. I also love to serve and visit with other women of my faith each month and share feelings about our beliefs. As our own children were growing up, we have gathered as a family every Monday night to study gospel topics, play together, and just spend quality time being a family.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I know that as we study sacred scripture and pray (or talk ) to our Father in Heaven, we can come to know Him for ourselves. He loves us and wants us to communicate with Him, just as a loving father would. He is the most perfect parent. He loves to bless us and wants us to be happy. As we continue to study and pray, we can not only understand who He is, but we can feel His perfect love for us. Show more Show less
