Hi I'm Amy Howell Starkey

I grew up in ID, MT, UT, and WA. I am the middle child of 3 kids. My husband and and I have 3 kids.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since I graduated from college (BYU, BA in Linguistics and TESL) my husband and I have lived in NY, OH, KY, SC, MI and OR. I love exercising, traveling, trying new foods and reading books about traveling and trying new foods! We have 3 kids and we love to go on adventures together to new places. We especially love being outside, hiking, camping or swimming. When we are not playing we work on improving our house. I have painted the interior of at least 4 houses. I'm also quite skilled in packing (probably because of all my experience with moving). When I was younger, instead of babysitting, I mowed lawns and had a paper route.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of Christs' church because of the peace and direction that it brings to my life. I have grown up with many things constantly changing. The gospel was a constant in my life; something I could count on. I rely on Heavenly Father to help me know His plan for my life and how to raise my children. I have seen the blessings that come from following His plan. I know that He knows what is best for me and my family. Sometimes it can seem overwhelming to do all the things that have been asked of me but I know that striving to do my best and endure to the end will allow my family and I to live with my Heavenly Father again for Eternity.

How I live my faith

I am involved in my church by overseeing and participating on a committee that plans activities for the women's organization. We are making dolls to be given out at local hospitals this week and also making freezer meals for families in need.
