Hi I'm Amber Liddiard

I am from Utah. I served a mission in Brazil and recently got married.

About Me

I grew up a few years in Australia, but mostly in Utah. When I was 9 years old my parents were divorced and soon after my dad remarried. I am the oldest of the 6 kids. I love spending time with my family boating and tubing, camping and four-wheeling. I love traveling and experiencing new places and things. I am studying photography and love taking pictures and making memories. My husband and I dated for 4 years and after we both returned home from our missions we were married in the Draper Temple. He is my best friend and I have the most fun when I am around him. We have a cute little hedgehog named Pokey and are excited to start our family as soon as we are both done with school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. I have been blessed with a gift for knowing. I can't identify a specific time when I wanted to know the church was true and received a recognizable answer, instead the thought that I already know the truth. Every time I feel the spirit it's another witness that this church is the true church. In my life I have proven that the gospel brings happiness and blessings. As I have seen different people in my life either living the gospel or not I can see that those who embrace the gospel are truely happier. The gospel just makes perfect sense. It gives me hope because I know that everything unfair about this life will made right through Christ's Atonement. Families can be together forever, they are meant to be together forever. The gospel brings safety and peace. When you live it you lose nothing and gain EVERYTHING. Test God's promises. He will always keep them. Christ lives and loves each of us and I know that this church is the ONLY church will the fulness of Christ's gospel restored.

How I live my faith

When I was 12 years old I started the Young Womens program and during one lesson I decided I would read my scriptures, pray and write in my journal everyday, so I did. Back then I was a very "letter of the law" type of person. That caused me to become very judgemental of those who chose not to live as strictly as me. Somewhere along the way I found that that is not how Christ works. If my goal is to be like Him I need to be accepting and love like He does. That is the best way to help someone is by loving example. Now I would say I am more of a "spirit of the law" person. I still try to live close to the spirit, but not at the cost of people I could help. After high school I got to go on a Church History tour to visit Kirkland, Nauvoo, the Sacred Grove, Palmyra, the Hill Cumorah, Carthage and Liberty Jail, etc... It was an amazing and unforgettable experience! I had wanted to serve a mission as long as I can remember so I took institute classes at college and before I turned 21 I started my mission papers. I was called to serve in the Brazil, Campinas mission and there I learned things that I will never regret learning. I learned how to see people with an eternal perspective, how to be grateful for everything I have, how to be a better mom and magnify my callings by knowing how to teach the gospel, how serving a mission blesses your family at home, how to trust in the Lord, and it strengthened my testimony and knowledge of the scriptures. Missions are hard, but worth every moment!
