Hi I'm Amber

I grew up in Arizona. I am a student. I am a volunteer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student who grew up in a small town in Arizona. I love to volunteer with my universities student service association and other organizations. I am studying International Relations and attempting to become fluent in a foreign language. I love to have fun and be active. My favorite sports include soccer, luge, snowboarding, and scuba diving. I love to travel and hope to visit most of the world during my life time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am the only LDS member in my family and growing up my parents never really took me to church. I would attend church with my grandfather when I visited him during summer vacation. I also explored other religions, attempting to learn about the different christian faiths. When I was seventeen I decided to start attending the LDS church with my best friend who is mormon and four weeks later I started taking the discussions. After three weeks of the missionaries teaching me about the Gospel and His church I was baptized on March 28th. I know that being baptized was one of the best decisions of my life, if not the best. I was drawn to the church because of the high moral standards and values it teaches. I know that families can be together forever. That Jesus Christ is the Savior and Heavenly Father knows each of us individually and loves us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service to my community and my church. I volunteer with organizations that serve my campus community and also volunteer at the Missionary Training Center. Service is an important component of my faith and I have learned how to draw closer to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through acts of service.I am constantly learning more about His church and how I can progress. I know that I need to try a little harder to be a little better and as I do this the rest will be made up.
