Hi I'm Emily

I'm a music therapist. I'm hearing impaired. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with disabilities. I have a hearing impairment and am missing a thumb, among other things. Yet still, I am a musician. I sing and play piano, guitar and percussion. Because of the way that my family raised me, I grew up with the knowledge that I had potential for greatness. My faith in Jesus Christ and knowledge in the plan that God has for me gives me great strength and peace, despite the difficulties that come with living with a disability. My experiences and love of music has driven me to be a music therapist - and I work primarily with children with disabilities.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints brings me great joy. The doctrine and principles of the gospel simply make sense to me, and even more importantly, the more I learn the more I feel of its truth and the more things feel right. I've always been a Mormon - and always will be a Mormon because this is what gives me knowledge in a world of confusion, what brings me peace in a world of turmoil, and what gives me strength in a world of change.

How I live my faith

I get the opportunity to be involved with music at church. I often play the piano or lead the music for meetings. Right now, I help with our congregation's choir - and I love to write arrangements of hymns specific to the talents of the choir members!
