Hi I'm Emily

I love my Savior, my family and my friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three kids. I have two younger brothers, a good mom and dad. One of my brothers has Down syndrome. He is a joy to have in our family and we love him. After I graduated from high school I went to college for a few years. I love the things I have been able to learn and the people I have been able to meet. I have taken a couple of years off of school to serve an LDS mission in Raleigh, NC. I love sharing the gospel with the people!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is true. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to be happy today and receive joy in eternity . . . that is living with Heavenly Father and our loved ones forever. As a child I followed my parents example and learned from them. As I grew up, I learned for myself the 'why' of the gospel and its teachings; I came to understand the reasons for the rules and guidelines I had been living by. I have come to understand for myself that everything God asks us to do is for a specific purpose. There are blessings that come to us in this life and in the life after this one as we follow the example of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by repenting every day. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of changing and becoming better, more like Him. I know that it is only through Him that we are able to overcome the trials, habits, sadness’s, and disappointments that plague us. I enjoy sharing this knowledge and blessing with everyone that I meet. I also enjoy the opportunities I have had to teach the women of the Church while I was away at school.
