Hi I'm Emily

I am a daughter and sister. I am a photography student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it lifts me and blesses me with joy each day. I enjoy learning new things, especially about the gospel. I love my family. I enjoy making new friends, laughing and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this gospel is true because I have sought out the truth for myself. Proverbs 3: 5-6 reads, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths." In times of trial and times of joy, I have put my trust in the Lord and He has provided me with the guidance and direction I seek in my life. I know I am a daughter of God and that knowledge gives me strength to use my agency righteously.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a daily basis. Each day I try to become a better disciple of Christ. I try to pattern my life after the Savior's example and I've fallen in love with who I am and who I can become. I love this gospel so much that it has become my whole life. Everything I do is influenced by my knowledge of the truth and the love I feel from my Heavenly Father. I am so thankful for my testimony and faith because it makes every day something to look forward to, no matter what is happening.

Are Mormons Christians?

Emily
YES! Mormons are indeed Christians. The Book of Mormon testifies, "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophesies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins" (2 Nephi 25:26). As His disciples, we believe that Jesus Christ is the "author and finisher of our faith" (Hebrews 12: 2). Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and He loves us very much. Show more Show less
