Hi I'm Ambri

I'm a 911 dispatcher and certified Athletic Trainer. I know the importance of knowing God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Ambri. I'm a 911 dispatcher and certified Athletic Trainer. I work three jobs between the two careers. I deal with high-stress situations almost every day, including giving someone CPR instructions over the phone, de-escalating a domestic violence situation until the officers can arrive, and talk to individuals who are considering suicide. I absolutely NEED the hope of the gospel in my life, when everything else seems so dark.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. However, it has been my choice and determination to stay in it. Life is rough. Life is challenging. It's supposed to be. But it's more rough and challenging without faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. There was a time in my life that I strayed away from the church for a bit. However, as soon as I did, I felt empty....lifeless. Like a huge part of me just left. I felt depressed and felt that I wasn't worth anything. It didn't take me long to figure out I need this gospel, every single day of my life. Without Christ and what He did for me, life would be pointless. There is a purpose to keep covenants with God and endure to the end. This purpose could only be achieved through Jesus Christ. His Atonement and Resurrection has paved the way to return back to my Heavenly Father. I know that my Savior and Redeemer, and my Heavenly Father loves me. I believe in Christ, so come what may. I know this life is to qualify us to return back to our Heavenly Father, and prove us worthy or unworthy of His presence. The trials and challenges in this life prepare and strengthen us if we endure them well. Without the knowledge of the Plan of Happiness, I would be utterly lost. Life would mean little. I feel my Savior's love as I serve others and do the things He asks of me.

How I live my faith

I start the day out by praying to my Heavenly Father. If I forget in the morning, I say a prayer on my way to work. I do my best to study and ponder the gospel, in various settings. I try to stand out, by raising above the negativity and criticism in the world. I try to live in a way so that those who don't know my Savior, want to know Him, because they know me.

Are Mormons Christians?

Ambri
Absolutely. When asked this question, I refer to the Book of Mormon, which is scripture that complements the Bible. It is another testament of Christ. This scripture that I use to answer this question is found in 2 Nephi 25:26. It reads: "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophesies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." We believe that Jesus Christ is our Redeemer, Savior, and Creator. He loves each of us and He wants us to return back to Him. Because of this, He atoned for the sins of the world and He was crucified. To become like Christ is our ultimate goal as Latter-Day Saints: to have the pure love and charity of Christ. He is the foundation of our church. We are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less
