Hi I'm Emily

I'm a wife and a mom to three girls. I'm a self-taught graphic designer. I run my own web design business from home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a work-at-home mom to three beautiful little girls. My husband and I are both self-confessed, technology-loving geeks. In fact, we met online and have been married now for 13 years. I am a self-taught graphic designer who started my own web design business three years ago. I work with clients from all over the world but get to do it from the comfort of my own home, and usually in my pajamas.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a strong Mormon family. In fact, I come from a long lineage of proud Mormon pioneer ancestors. But that doesn't mean that I didn't have to become converted to this gospel. My conversion came incrementally but was solidified as a teenager while attending a church summer camp. I remember sitting in a beautiful meadow one sunny afternoon and praying to God to know whether the things I had been taught all my life were true. The confirmation that I received was undeniable. During the times in my life when my conviction has waned, I try to think back on that experience in the meadow, and others like it, and remember the feelings that I felt. The reason I stay, the reason I believe is something that Joseph Smith himself said, "I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it". I know that this church is Jesus Christ's true gospel and I know that when I'm following His example I'm happiest. It's really that simple for me.

How I live my faith

I help the teenage girls in our congregation with a goal-setting program called, "Personal Progress". The girls set and achieve goals that help to develop their skills, mold their character and strengthen them spiritually. I also visit four assigned women from our congregation on a monthly basis. A companion and I go to their homes, share a gospel message with them and enjoy friendship and conversation. It's a way for us as women to look after one another needs and show our love and support.
