Hi I'm Amber

I am a wife, mother, and an officer in the military. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother of two wonderful children, and active duty officer serving in the military. During college I attended a federal service academy and love serving my country, but above all else I am a wife and mother first.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess I've had a testimony of the church my whole life, a mormon is how I've always described myself and I just know it's true. The Gospel is my rod, my sure foundation in a time where it seems like everything is always changing. When I've had a hard day at work I go to my knees, when it seems like nothing is going the way it should I can turn to Jesus Christ through prayer and somehow everything works out in the end even if in the moment nothing is working out. I don't know what I would do without the church or the Gospel in my life, I do know that life would be a lot harder for me though.

How I live my faith

I focus on the basics; I read my scriptures, say my prayers, attend my church meetings, spend every waking moment I can with my family, and go to the temple as often as possible.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

In my family our roles are slightly different, but we stick to the important facts. My husband is the Priesthood leader in our home and I am the wife and mother. My husband provides for me in ways money cannot buy and I help support the family through my working. My husband is just as capable of raising our children as I am and does an amazing job at it because he is a faithful Priesthood holder and I get through my days at work because I have the gospel in my life. My most important job though, is nurturing my children and I spend all my time off from work investing my energies in my sweet children. We have found the gospel to be a great help to us during this time when I work and my husband is at home because we know what our roles are and what is truly important. Show more Show less
