Hi I'm Amber

I am a teacher. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I thrive on music, politics, and diversity. As a school teacher, I get summers off, so I use that time to live in new places. I spent one summer in Washington DC (politics central) and another in Austin, TX (live music central). I play the flute and piano, and love to sing anytime, anywhere. I love learning about American History and current international affairs. And, I'm pretty sure I have the cutest nephew in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I want to be the best person I can be, and I know that is only possible through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for parents and progenitors who recognized the truth of the restored church and faithfully sacrificied to follow its teachings. Despite being born into a family of members of the church, I have learned for myself that this is God's church. What a huge blessing it is in my life! I have hope through the atonement and life through the resurrection of my Savior.

How I live my faith

I love being part of a community. I like hanging out with my friends and participating in community events. I try to support uplifting things and raise my voice against negative media and low moral standards. I try to share things about the church with people because the gospel and church have blessed my life.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

People who aren't familiar with members of our church or who misunderstand the teachings of the church may refer to Mormonism as a cult. A lot of times, people who categorize Mormonism as a cult are trying to criticize or discredit the church. When they learn more about our beliefs as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they realize that we worship Jesus Christ as our Savior. And we really aren't as unorthodox as some people claim. Show more Show less
