Hi I'm Amber

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm a mother, the wife of a military doctor, and a world traveler. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have worked in a french restaurant, a dentist office, a military surplus store, and I have taught piano on the side. Now I'm a mom! I love reading, painting, playing piano, singing, cooking, and sewing. I am writing my fourth book and hope to be published someday. Spending time with family, however, brings me the most happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and I have always had a strong testimony because I lived in an area where I had to be the example and there were not very many people like me. As a teenager, I revisited those things, praying intently to know of their truth and worked to develop the weaker parts of my testimony. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel on this earth. He saw the Father and Christ and could not deny it even though angry mobs sought to destroy him and his loved ones. The gospel helps me be a better wife and mother. It is so amazing to me that I can be forgiven of all my sins because of Christ's atonement. I know I am loved by my Heavenly Father. Keeping the commandments makes my life so much happier.

How I live my faith

I teach the young women in our congregation, try to make my home a peaceful refuge for my family, and teach my daughter how much Christ loves her.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

A husband and wife are partners in marriage who strive to make an environment in their home where their children can learn of Christ's teachings. Show more Show less
