Hi I'm Emily Lawrence

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised an Air Force Brat from Hawaii till my parents retired in Colorado. I greatly enjoy bowling and photography. I Have an older brother and a younger sister who I am very close with. Also as a newlywed, I have a wonderful husband that is currently going through Pilot training with the Air Force. Not only am I a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a wife but I am the child of converts. My mom converted to the church when she was 16 and my dad when he was 32. Because of my parents and their faith and strength I am where I am today! I dont know where I would be or who I would be without them and their love for the Gospel! It was never easy being in a family with both parents as converts, they didnt always have the answer, we didnt always do FHE and many other things. But my parents never missed a beat when living their life according to the church and making sure, as children, we knew what was expected of us.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it is the faith I have been raised in. But most importantly, it makes sense! There is a real answer for every question you have on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. We practice a religion that Jesus Christ himself established here on the Earth. His structure and word was lost for a time but has been restored today. We have a living Prophet who leads and guides us with direct direction from our Heavenly Father. I am encouraged to develop a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. I also had the opportunity to be sealed in the Temple for time and all eternity. What a blessing it is to know that when I die I will still be married to my husband in the life to come. Families are forever.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am the ward chorister. I have worked in the nursery and the relief society. I am also a visiting teacher.
