Hi I'm Amber

I am now a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in one of the largest cities in the United States in a suburb of Houston, TX. I was raised an only child, with an upbringing by my mom's parents. I have always been into sports, science math (like Einstein and Pythagoras), drawing, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I was atheist until I was almost 19 years old. Most of my friends weren't Christian, nor did they ever invite anyone to church with them. When I moved away to college in San Antonio, I made a few friends in my classes who seemed pretty nice. They invited me to attend a church where I can meet other young females to fellowship with. I started to get into it - making new friends, going to church, reading my bible - until my fiancee, who lived in my hometown of Houston, decided it was time to take our relationship to the next level by getting married. I left everything, including my faith, behind in San Antonio and moved back to Houston only to be heartbroken. The relationship ended as quickly as me moving back to Houston. When I tried to move back to San Antonio, things weren't the same anymore. I didn't know what to do or where to go. That is when I prayed -and I mean really prayed - for the first time in my Christian faith. God told me, loud and clear, He wanted me to move back to Houston. I never understood why there of all the places. I didn't want to be around my family. I didn't want to be around my non-Christian childhood friends. Looking back, that move was crucial not only to my life but also to my relationship with God. I never thought when I moved back to the one place where I thought I would have absolutely zero motivation, it would give me the greatest insight to my future. Within the one year it took me to finish college at University of Houston, I knew once I graduated I would be moving. I knew my time would be up, and I would need to move on - figuratively and literally. Within 3 months of living in Colorado, I met the love of my life, who is Mormon. I felt God working in my heart. I didn't listen at first, then it became undeniably stronger. Since being baptized, I have never felt more loved by God.

How I live my faith

I live each day as if God is right next to me, physically. I try to be the best wife - supporting my husband and encouraging his faith to grow. I try to read the Book of Mormon on a daily basis and also pray with my husband on good and bad days.
