Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mother. I'm an Athlete. I'm a Writer.

About Me

I am a mother of two kids and wife of a med student, so I am constantly trying to find balance. I run marathons competitively for a track club, serve as the president of my condo association, work as a freelance writer and editor, and bake thousands of vegan chocolate chip cookies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am glad to have grown up in a home where Christian values were taught and Christ-like behavior was expected. I followed my parents' examples and then read the Book of Mormon for myself, prayed about it, and felt the Holy Ghost confirm to me that it is true. The truth of the Gospel is reaffirmed to me through the many miracles that I've witnessed and the positive changes I've seen in my life.

How I live my faith

I attend church with my family every Sunday and serve as a teacher of 5-year-olds. We discuss scripture stories and gospel principles through presentations, songs, and art. Once a month, I visit a few women to share a short devotional and check on their physical needs. I make meals for new moms and serve in the community.
