Hi I'm Amethyst

Hi! Welcome to my page I am a Singer, Songwriter/ Actress from Orange County. And I am a Saint of these Latter Days :D

About Me

Music, Theatre, & Television is my thing. I have grown up loving to perform. Its my passion, and it brings me peace, harmony and excitement.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Christ. I believe that in order to return to him, we must be saved by Grace and be changed by Grace. I believe in the Eternal Plan of Salvation, and that as long as we are here on this earth, we must always be willing to share the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by serving the Lord. I have 3 church callings in my Young Single Adult Ward that I attend. I am in the choir, the dance committee, and now I am on the Welcoming Committee. My church callings really help me to stay close to The Gospel, because I am given task that really serve as a positive purpose to keep me on track. I am to attend choir rehearsal weekly, where I must prepare to sing for Sunday Services, and special events. On the Dance Committee, I am in charge of getting the word out to Southern California Young Single Adults age 18-30 to come out to our Beach Cities YSA Dances. And Welcoming Committee is where I am in charge of helping people who would like to join our ward. I love my callings and I am thankful that they all directly help me in serving this Gospel.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Amethyst
I am a Pro at answering this one. I can break it down for you. Think of a stake like a school district. For example lets say you have the Springfield Stake And under a school district you may have a variety of schools. So think of the schools being like a ward. Wards may have names or numbers, ex. 1st ward, 2nd ward, 3rd ward, 4th ward, Sunny Hills Ward etc. So... the 1st ward, 2nd ward, 3rd ward, 4th ward, and Sunny Hills Ward are all under the Springfield Stake. Normally you attend the ward assigned in your boundaries, just as you would normally for any public schools. Types of Wards: Family Wards, Young Single Adult Wards, Student Wards, Mid Single Adult Wards & Newlywed Wards. Every stake has family wards, the rest may depend on how large the membership is for that particular area. A Branch is basically a ward but smaller. A Bishop heads a ward. A Branch President heads a branch, and some other changes may apply. Yea so basically that is it :D Show more Show less
