Hi I'm Emily

I'm a teacher, I'm a sister, I'm a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently working at a junior high teaching English to 180+ teenagers. My job brings me a lot of laughs, a lot of frustration, and a lot of growing experiences. I have grown to really love these students that I see every day, and I have learned a lot about God's love for me as I've grown into this role. In my free time I like to catch up with friends, do yoga, play the guitar and the piano, read, and plan trips around the world. Although I live in a different state as the rest of my family, I love to talk to and spend time with them. My younger brothers are the coolest boys on the planet.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church, but through the help of the Holy Ghost, I have built my own testimony. I know that this is Christ's Church on Earth, and that the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ has made it possible for us to become like He is. As a twenty-something-year-old single, I've dealt with a lot of transition over the last few years. As I'm making decisions and dealing with change, it is so comforting to know that the Church and my testimony are constants in my life, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Knowing God loves me is an incredible force in my life, and I wish that everyone could feel that love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my ward. I go to Church each Sunday to take the Sacrament. My ward is especially for single adults, and one of my responsibilities is to help plan activities during the week. These activities help us get to know each other better, and I'm grateful for the friends I have made from attending. I live my faith outside of Church meetings as well. By reading my scriptures and praying every day, I invite the Holy Ghost to be with me. I am also living my faith by serving others and trying to keep the commandments.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes, Mormons are Christians. As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe that salvation comes through our Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
