Hi I'm Aimee

I love books, laughter, service, beaches, movies, hugs, travel, and time spent with friends and family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a licensed social worker and an aunt to a handful of cuties. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life. My parents are Mormon and so are my siblings. I made the choice to be baptized when I was 8 years old. When I turned 21, I served a Mormon mission. It was my choice and I loved every minute of it. Those that I taught and served are my family too. I love them dearly and am forever grateful to be a part of their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that the principles found therein are true. It is whole. It is complete. I have known it ever since I can remember. Despite the hardships and sadness in the world, the gospel teachings bring clarity and peace into my life. I cannot imagine my life without this knowledge.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example. I attend church and read my scriptures. I pray. I share my belief in Christ when possible. I strive to serve and show love to those around me. I try daily to pattern my life, my choices, in accordance with Christ's teachings. I am not perfect... definitely more of a work in progress, but I try. It can be hard sometimes but we are all God's children. I hope that my daily actions reflect my belief that Christ came to earth, suffered for my sins, died and was resurrected... all so that each of God's children could have peace in this life and return to live with Him again.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Aimee
One of my dear friends shared with me this statement: "If you want to talk to God, you should pray. If you want to hear God, you should read the scriptures." The scriptures are simply God's teachings as shared through his prophets. By studying His words you can know for yourself what God wants you to know. His teachings are just as applicable today as they were in ancient times. They are applicable because they are truth, and truth doesn't change. Truth is eternal. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Aimee
Mormon women are beautiful. They are beautiful because they know and understand their worth as God's children. Mormon women strive to be chaste, modest, compassionate, intelligent, virtuous, and faithful. In God's eyes men and women are equal, in that they are His children and deserve the same love and respect. Even though we are equal we are not the same. Fundamentally we have different physical attributes. Generally speaking we also have different mental and emotional attributes. Our differences are what balance our relationships and our lives.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Aimee
This is a great question, but in preparation you should ask yourself: Do you truly want to know? And if so, are you ready to follow the answer you receive? If you answer yes to either, here is what you can do. Go to the source... God. Go to Him in prayer. I promise that if you want to know and you ask with that faith, He will answer. Ask and then listen with your heart. For some the answer comes as a peaceful feeling. For others, their heart may race, they may experience feelings of joy (including tears :) ), or it may be a simple reassurance. But, the answer will come. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Aimee
Everything around me tells me that there is a God. Nature. It is exquisite. Our human bodies, so intricate, so complex. The indescribable feelings associated with the birth of a baby. The intense feelings of gratitude I have for those who serve and sacrifice so that my life can be one of peace and safety. My prayers being answered. Being supported by friends, family, and sometimes even complete strangers in moments of great struggle or despair. Even in tragedy, affliction, and death I see God's presence. He is always there. I know of nothing that speaks to the contrary. Show more Show less

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Aimee
If you want to become a member you will need to meet with Mormon missionaries. You may have seen them walking or biking around, two young men or two young women. They will always have a name tag identifying who they are. Mormon missionaries will teach you everything you need to know about the Mormon Church and how to become a member. If you don't see them in your neighborhood you can ask your Mormon friend about meeting with them. If you don't have any Mormon friends you can go to http://mormon.org and ask for missionaries to be sent to your home. Show more Show less
