Hi I'm AmberLee

I am a college student studying family history and editing. I am a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student who wants to write historical fiction and personal histories for my family members. I want to edit anything and everything. And I want to teach people in my community how to find their ancestors. Most of all I want to be a homemaker and raise a family. I love to sing and play the piano. A good day is one where I can laugh with those who love me, and then curl up with a good book.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. My parents are Mormon, and my grandparents are Mormon. I started out a Mormon because that is what my family did. But now I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. I feel like my life has more purpose and direction as I live an LDS lifestyle. I have listened to and read the words of the leaders of this church. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it is true. I received an answer to my prayer; I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know the leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been called by God and speak for God. The Lord has restored His church to the earth. What a blessing! I am grateful for the guidance of prophets on the earth. In a world where traditional goodness and values are being mocked on a daily basis, it is so good to have men called by God to teach us how He would have us live our lives. Living the gospel brings me joy and peace in a world where joy and peace are becoming increasingly difficult to find. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

One of the programs for women in our church is visiting teaching. I am a visiting teacher which means I go with another woman to visit two women who live near us. Basically I am an assigned friend who makes sure that the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the women I visit are met. To me, visiting teaching is a great way to make new friends with people I wouldn't otherwise seek out. I have learned to love and cherish women from all walks of life as I have served them and spent time in their homes.
