Hi I'm Amber Waters

I am originally from Cleveland, Tennessee. I work for the Welfare Department of the Church. I am a Morman.

About Me

I was born in Tennessee and I still call there home. I am the oldest of 3 children. I have a sister named Brooke and a brother named Neal. My parents are amazing and have stuggled a lot to get our family to where it is now! I graduated with a degree in History and a minor in Art from Weber State University in 2008. I have worked for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 3 years now in the Welfare Department. I enjoy serving and helping others. After dating for almost 2 years, 6 months ago I got married in the Bountiful Temple to my husband. In my free time I love to spend time with my husband, family, friends, and my puppies. Our puppies are Rhodesian Ridgebacks and they are awesome! We got 2 girls (sisters). I love to be outdoors, hike, swim, and I love the theater. I also like to craft and make things to decorate my home.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not always an active member in the Church. As a youth I felt that I didn't fit in with other members of the church and in high school I stopped going to church. After high school I made a few pour choices that kept me further away from the Church. I moved out of my parents' house when I was 19 with my best friend, Kim. Kim was a strong member of the Church. After about a month Kim came to me and said that it was too hard for her to be the only person in the house with her standards and that she needed to move out. I asked her to stay and she said that she would if I would go to church with her on Sundays. I agreed and started going to church as a "chore." I started to really feel the spirit again one day in Relief Society. In the lesson the teacher read a story about a little girl who was on a plane going through a rough storm. A man asked her why she wasn't scared and the girl respnded that her dad was the pilot and was taking her home. The teacher related that story to our Heavenly Father being the pilot of our lives and that we didn't need to be scared. I felt the spirit so strong that day. Shortly after that I had the oppurtunity to go to Europe by myself, all alone. It was the biggest life changing experience of my life. While I was there (for about 3 weeks) I was able to do a lot of thinking about who I wanted to be and where my life needed to go. When I came home I changed my phone number, broke up with a guy I had been dating, and stopped hanging out with some of the people who were bad influeneces on me. It was the best and hardest decision I have ever made. When I look back on my life I always will know that my trip to Europe was the time that my life changed forever. It was there that I decided that I was missing the most important thing in my life; the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Since then, I have gone forward with Faith, never looking back with regret. I am a Morman because I know the Church is true and that my life is more blessed with it!

How I live my faith

My husband and I just moved into our house and became members of a new ward. We were called to be Primary Teachers (teaching children that are 9 years old). I love teaching children. I don't have kids of my own and so I was so surprised to see how smart they are. I have also, just recently, been assigned to be a Visiting Teacher. I am excited to go and visit the sisters in my ward and get to know them better.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Amber Waters
I am so blessed to be a member of the Church. My favorite thing about the Gospel is the knowing that I will be with my family forever! Being sealed to my husband was the best experience of my life! I am so happy that I will be able to be with my loved ones forever and that death is not the end. Show more Show less
