Hi I'm Amberly
I love life and I'm a Mormon.
I am a student at a fantastic university studying education. In all reality I hope to continue as an event coordinator since I have been working my way through school at a catering job and love it. I love spending time with family and friends and just being crazy with them. I LOVE the outdoors! Hiking, rock climbing, camping and even just driving through the mountains. I also have a great love of music. I love singing, playing the piano and am learning to play the guitar. I have also started this thing called running. I'm not at the point where I could do a marathon or even a half marathon, but maybe someday I will be able to do that. Art is another thing I love. I love charcoal and ink drawing. In addition, I love performing arts like theater. I did a few musicals growing up and love to go see them. This whole thing is so sporadic, but you should know that I loooooove Ultimate Frisbee. I don't usually get into sports, but in frisbee I do! I will take you on!!! I suppose to end this I will just say that life is what you make it. Things happen to us, but that does not determine who we are or how we act. Just smile! There's always a reason to do it. :) ..like celebrating odd holidays...or having themed parties!!!!
Why I am a Mormon
Although I was born into an LDS family, I would not be living it fully if I had not gained my own testimony of this gospel. I have have felt the Lord's influence time and again as I searched for understanding, comfot, and strength. My life has not always been a bowl full cherries which I Love! and at those times when it seemed that no one else was there I would go onto my knees and plead with God to help me. And without fail He sends me what I need most. I also see the influence this gospel has in others. I have seen many friends make decisions that I have been taught are harmful, and I see how much pain it causes them. But once they recognize that they have a Heavenly Father who loves them they are able to find the peace and help which they need. I know that this gospel is the way to true happiness because the times when I am truly happy are the times when I am striving my best to keep God's commandments.
How I live my faith
I absolutely love opportunities to serve in my church. It can be simply leading the music during out meetings or even planning lessons for Sunday School. I also love when I visit others in my ward to just chat with them, serve them and even share a spiritual message of encouragement. After all, we all have different challenges we have to face in life.
