Hi I'm Amber Ferrell

I grew up in Virginia. I'm a convert. I am lds.

About Me

I grew up in a city then in high school moved to the country. Living in both areas has thought me that it doesn't matter where you are, your mind set makes all the difference. After I graduated in 2014 I was able to go on a mission for 18 months. My mission was called the great Kentucky Louisville Mission. It was amazing I served from Sep 3, 2014- March 23, 2016. On my mission I was able to go to Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky. I love music, my family, the out doors ( being outside), animals, and developing new talents.

Why I am a Mormon

When I first joined the LDS church it was simply because every time I went, it felt like home and every thing that was thought I knew was true. Now being older I have been able to live my faith, but I have also had to stand up for it. Doing this has blessed my life in so many ways, I know that what I am doing is right and true, God is proud, I am coming closer to him, and that I am always gaining knowledge. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Gods church restored to the world, and that by being her we learn to gain new talent and we know who we are as sons and daughter of God. I say this in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping everyone I can. Helping people can be anything from helping to do things for them, being kind to them, teaching people, or even teaching by example. In church I am a substitute teacher, and sometimes people will ask if I can help them with short notice as little as that day. Being willing to say yes has helped people in so many ways but has also brought me tons of joy. Another way I live my faith is living by all the principles, standards, and being as respectable as I can everyday and where ever I am.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Amber Ferrell
yes we believe that God still helps lead us and sometimes by a prophet today. We believe in the holy bible and also the Book of Mormon. In our life we see that we live differently then Moses did. Because our obstacles may be a little different than Moses, we have a modern day prophet who speaks to us two times a year, to help lead and direct us in the saviors way. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Amber Ferrell
We believe that men and women are completely equal, we may have different jobs but we each have our own roll. A man is not better without a women neither is a women better with out a man. Parents have a divine roll together and a mother and father also have there own divine roll, but both are to strive to be equally yoked. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Amber Ferrell
We are not required to serve a mission. Going on a mission is a privilege, however there are some who physically can not. While going on a mission is not required, we should always be willing to teach the gospel to others through action or guidance. There are many people who do not have the fullness of truth or even a true understanding of Jesus Christ. In some cases we may be the only way they can have that information so it is important we share when we can or when we are prompted. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Amber Ferrell
The Bible has indeed been on the earth for a long time. As we can see from all around the world. People have different beliefs and believe different things from the Bible. The restoration was made so that we could have a fullness of truth. If you take a thum tac and put it through a pice of paper you can move it any way, but when you put a thum tack on one side and another on the other, it can't move. That is the restoration. One thum tac is the Bible and the other is the Book of Mormon, the paper is then the unchangable truth. Show more Show less
