Hi I'm Amber May

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I come from a very smal town in oregon. I still live in the ward that i grew up in. The people there are like family. I have been to a few other wards and my ward will always be home. I have been married to my husband for almost 5 years. He is a non-member. He comes from a part member family. His mom was the rock and she passed away a few years ago. My mom is not active at this time and neither are my sisters. We went througha rough patch after my dad passed away and I an the only one that is active besides my aunts and uncles and grandma and step grandpa. I am working full time right now and someday hope to have a family of my own. My husband also works full time. We are just enjoying being with each other right now.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I stopped going for a while after my dad passed away and while I was in college and meet my husband. I finally decieded that I missed having Jesus Christ in my life, even though I never stopped praying, I knew I needed to get back to church and have the sacrament back in my life, as well as the scriptures. I missed going to church and feeling the Holy Ghost. WOW... the Holy Ghost is a powerful feeling. I think i BAWLED the 1st 6 months I was back in church. Soon after going back I recieved my pariartical Blessing and I BAWLED through that also. It means so much to me, I read it all the time. Some day I hope to go through the temple and have my husband go with me, awell as getting my two sisters and mom to come back to church. I just keep praying...

How I live my faith

I am currently the secretary for the women that teach the young women of the church. We have mutual or youth group on Wednesday's. I really enjoy teaching the young women of the church. My little sister is 16 right now and somtimes she come to church with me. I'm not much older than them and still see myself as "one of the girls" sometimes, they think it's funny. I also go Visiting teaching my partner, who is about 50 years older than I am. She is really nice and I went to school with her grandchildren. It is nice to get to know her and she really taught me how going to see people and being dependable is important.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Amber May
Temples are special places where families came be together forever. I went throught the temple when I was 8 with my family to be sealed for time and eternity. I am so happy for this event and remember it like yesterday. 2 years after my father passed away, If we wouldn't have been sealed, who knows what would have happened. but now I know I will see my dad again someday.
