Hi I'm Emily

I am a recreation therapist. I love expressive arts and adventure. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married tp my best friend. I am a recreation therapists working with the mental health population in the community and in acute care. In my free time I enjoy playing with expresive arts. I love to knit. My husband and I love to travel, camp, bike, hike and ski.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it makes me happy. Being mormon helps me keep life in perspective. I know who I am, where I came from and why I am here. I am a mormon because it helps me know my Saviour and Redeemer Jesus Christ, the source of hope and strength in my life. I have come to know through my own experiences, that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I try and live my faith everyday by showing Christ like love to the people around me, the clients I work with, my coworkers, my family. I also live my faith as a teacher of the women's group at church. Once a month I teach a lesson on a principle of the gospel, such as faith or charity, although I am the "teacher", I think I learn more than the class participants. My husband and I also support the youth by chaperoning a youth dance once a month. We enjoy being around their energetic sprits and helping them have a safe and fun evening.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

I love mormon temples. I have been to a lot of beautiful places in the world, but the temple is the most beautiful place I have ever been. In the temple we make promises to God and in return are promised blessings. I love the temple because I feel peace. I feel closer to my Father in Heaven and to my brother, Jesus Christ. I am reminded of who I am and what I am here on earth to do. In the temple, we are able to be sealed together as families. It brings me incredible peace and hope to know that I will be with my father and mother and brothers and sisters when I leave this world. I love knowing that my husband and I will be together after this life. I love moron temples. Show more Show less
