Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, I'm Emily :) I love singing, and all art forms; Painting, Music, etc. I love learning about people and about how things work. I have a great job, I'm a student. I love to read, expand my mind, and to be still.

Why I am a Mormon

I recently converted to the LDS church. Before my life was pretty much just going through the motions of every day with no real purpose it all. I felt so lost. Thinking I was smarter than God and I had all the answers.. that thinking only led me to deeper and darker places, Why was I here on earth? The question used to fill my mind day and night. I grew up strong in another faith, I gave it my all.. but I couldn't help but always feel like there was something missing in my life.. I didn't know what, but something.. Years of trying to find that missing piece inside of myself, and lots of roads traveled, I came upon this gospel. My heart was hard, but the spirit I felt was so strong, so loving, so fulfilling. How could I deny this? I couldn't.. I slowly started to embrace it, learned about the teachings, learned about plan of salvation. What was happening to me.. something different was going on inside of me.. I could feel myself changing, I could feel a sense of peace through me, which is something I pretty much never have felt. I could feel a sense of security, hope, love, joy, and so many other emotions that words can't express. I started to read the Book of Mormon, and it all fit with the heavy biblical background I was raised in, it was the missing piece. The more I read the more I saw and understood it's truth. The more I prayed the more I could feel that undeniable spirit with me helping me see right from wrong. I finally have hope. Real Hope! I know that when I die I can see my family again! I would not trade the knowledge of this Gospel and the love of my Savior for anything! He is my best friend, my Redeemer, and he is always there for me, and he is Real! I am so thankful for his restored church and all the many ways he works in my life. I can honestly say that I know that if you follow the teachings of his church and live your life according to his will, with him in the center of it all, you will live a fulfilling life. No regrets. I am better everyday because he guides me, I am happier every day because he's with me, and I know that I will be with him again some day. And That is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Growing one day at a time, serving others as much as I can, and loving my each person I see. Having compassion, and being an ear to listen. Trying to be more like my ultimate example :)
