Hi I'm Amy

I was born in Japan. I have seven siblings. I enjoy running. I aspire to be a Dental Hygienist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy running, singing, hiking, exploring, shopping, trying new foods, playing soccer, and just chilling with friends! I am planning on serving a mission for 18 months for my church. After my mission, I will continue to go to school for Dental Hygiene. I was born in Japan, then we moved to Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana, and now Nevada. My siblings are my best friends! We recently adopted my youngest 2 brothers. We were a foster family for about a year, and then we met them and fell in love. I love all music! I was able to visit Ireland this Summer with my choir. It was an amazing experience in a beautiful country!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon, but I still had to find out for myself if it was true and for me. It wasn't an overnight or some earth-shattering experience. It was slow and steady, and it has taken time for me to really know, and that's okay. There have been a few very crucial moments in my life that have helped me on my quest for truth. The first was when I was a freshman in High School. My family got in a very serious car wreck. It is miraculous that we all survived with minor injuries. That taught me how valuable and precious life is. From that experience I also realized how much my family means to me, and how thankful I am for them. I know we were saved in that wreck for a reason. I know my life has purpose. The second experience was when my aunt passed away from cancer. She passed away on Thanksgiving. This allowed us to focus on all of the things we were grateful for at that trying time. On that day, more than ever before, I was grateful for the knowledge that I would be able to see my aunt again. The third experience was when we adopted my brothers. Really the whole process of fostering them, and then going through with the adoption allowed me to really see how our Heavenly Father loves and cares for each and every one of his children. I am so grateful for his love. I am also so very grateful that he has a plan for each of us. I am also so very grateful for Jesus Christ and the life that he lived. I know that through the Atonement of Christ, I can be cleansed from all of my sins. Knowing this has really brought perspective in my life, and has allowed me to repent and continue in faith. I look forward to serving a mission and bringing this message of happiness, hope, and healing to those seeking it.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Ward Missionary. I love being able to assist the missionaries and ward members in their missionary efforts. It is amazing to witness how the Restored Gospel is blessing the lives of the members of our community. I also visit monthly with some women in our ward. They have become some of my closest friends. I love learning from them.
