Hi I'm Amber

I'm a missionary serving in Atlanta, Georgia. I play the piano, love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary serving in the Georgia Atlanta North mission. I am so excited for this opportunity that I have to serve the Lord and bring my brothers and sisters to Him. I know that this is the true and living Gospel and that by following its teaching we will be able to return home to live with Heavenly Father forever. This Gospel will bring us happiness. I have experience that in my own life and I love this Gospel! I put my education on hold for a year and a half, but when I return I will continue studying biology before going to PA school. I love being able to talk to and help people and to learn their stories. I am the second of six children, with four sisters and one brother. My older sister is serving a mission in the South as well. My family means everything to me and I love them very much. I love cooking, reading, playing the piano, and laughing and having a good time with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in a home where my family and the majority of people around me were of the Mormon faith. This gave me a foundation that I could build my life and make my choices on. Eventually, I came to the point where I wanted to know for myself why I lived this way. For me, my answer didn't come as one huge, overwhelming experience; rather, as I made choices that were in line with the teaching of the Gospel, I would get warm feelings in my heart and whisperings that told me I was doing the right thing. I am by no means perfect and the Gospel gives me the opportunity every single day to put behind me the mistakes of yesterday and do my best today. This Gospel gives me something to hold onto when things are hard and it allows me to be with my family for time and all eternity.

How I live my faith

This summer I had the opportunity to work at an LDS girls camp in southern Utah. Each week I had a group of 12-14 girls who were between the ages of 12 and 14. While they were there, I, along with the rest of the staff, were able to teach them principles about the Gospel that would help them through their upcoming years of junior high and high school. It was an amazing chance for me to be able to share some of the things that have given me strength, peace, hope, and love in my life with others who were still striving to gain that knowledge for themselves. It has given me renewed dedication in my own life to study my scriptures daily, to begin and end my day with prayers, and to try a little harder every day to be a little better than I was yesterday.
