Hi I'm Amber Brubaker

I grew up in a tiny farming community in Idaho. I'm happily married and going to school at BYU-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in college, studying English, hoping to write or teach someday. I love to sing and to be with people. I am married to an amazing man and we are working together towards eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church. Living the gospel is like having a friend with you always. It is amazing because whenever I feel down or inadequate, I know that I can always pray or read the scriptures for comfort. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gives me a purpose and a reality to my life here on Earth. It gives me something to work towards. By living the gospel standards, life is easier! I know that this church is true and that Jesus Christ is my savior. He suffered for my sins so that I don't have to in the last days. Through his atoning grace I know that I can be saved if I am faithful. I love this gospel and know that it is true with all my heart. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised in the church. It seems like I would be perfect at living the standards of the church, but it is more difficult than it may seem and I am still working on being truly converted. Right now, I am a visiting teaching supervisor in my ward. Visiting teaching is an assignment given to all the ladies of the ward. They are paired up and assigned a few women to go and visit every month. My job is to write down who did their visiting so that we can be aware of all of the women in the ward. At first I thought that it was going to be a lame calling, but I came to the realization that it would only be really lame if I made it that way. So instead I decided to make it as great as possible. Since then I have made a real effort to get to know all of the women that are supposed to report to me and have felt so much closer to each of them. It has helped me integrate into the ward and to gain so many knew friends.
