Hi I'm Amren

I'm a 6th grade teacher, traveler, daughter, sister, friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Some call me quirky, happy, creative, caring, daring, teacher, and unique. I grew up in a large family and loved every minute of it (well not the typical sibling quarrels). My parents are amazing and I am extremely lucky to have them as my parents. They helped me to learn responsibility, respect, courage, and my values. I have been a teacher for seven years. What an accomplishment! I love working with children. I learn more than I teach! I am looking forward to furthering my education to a Master's Degree. I have loved teaching in various countries around the world. I have found a niche combining travel and teaching. Where to next? I enjoy sewing, cross stitching, reading, playing sports, watching sports, writing, and spending time with friends and family. Someday I would love to have a family. I am looking forward to being a mother and teaching my children and having a lot of fun while doing it!

Why I am a Mormon

Many people assume that some people are Mormons because that's how they were raised. Although I was raised a "Mormon", I have chosen to be one. One doesn't become a devoted Mormon because others want them or expect them to be. I have committed to the gospel because I know it is the true church of Jesus Christ. I know that God loves me and that his way is how I want to live my life. I have chosen through a covenant (baptism) to follow Jesus Christ. What does this mean to me? Keeping the commandments, serving and loving others, overcoming selfishness, and separating myself from worldliness (the things the world presents as providers of happiness) are ways that I live the gospel. It isn't just "not" doing the "bad" things but choosing to DO the good things.

How I live my faith

My faith is my lifestyle and my way of being. Living in emulation with the example of Jesus Christ is how I strive to live. In my ward I am able to teach the sisters. Studying and teaching about the gospel of Jesus Christ to the women of my ward is a blessing. We can bond and help each other through the trials of life and rejoice together in our accomplishments. I also visit three sisters every month in their home. It is a unique way of meeting, teaching, serving, and laughing with sisters in my ward that I may never have gotten to know. I feel a greater sense of community worshiping with those around me.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is the longest running women's organization in the world. Relief Society is a meeting on Sundays (during the 3 hour block) for sisters (18 and older). We come together to learn about the gospel and share our life experiences with one another. As women, we can understand each other and support and serve one another. Sisters in Relief Society are assigned Visiting Teachers. Visiting Teachers visit you once a month in your home. I have been blessed by having wonderful Visiting Teachers who have supported me. We serve one another and make sure that each other's needs are met. We also participate in weekly activities to teach each other, cultivate our talents, and learn new things. All women, the world over, would greatly benefit from the sisterhood of the Relief Society. Show more Show less
