Hi I'm Emily

I'm the 5th child out of 9. I'm the mother of 3 boys. I grew up in Idaho but now call Texas my home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to cook and eat all types of food, right now I am discovering and enjoying Indian food. I feel it is important to come together as a family and eat dinner. My kids enjoy rating my new recipes and we all enjoy hearing about each others’ day. I love to play card games, board games, group games, any type of game. I am always planning parties and get-togethers, any excuse to have fun and celebrate. I also love to read, watch movies, and just spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

As I mentioned, I am a mother and I love the principles taught to the youth in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I want my children taught to be honest, trustworthy, hard-working, self-reliant, charitable, respectful, chaste, kind, and to have integrity and faith. My own wonderful parents raised me in the Church of Jesus Christ but I have gained my own testimony. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know of its truth. I have also asked in prayer as to the truthfulness of Joseph Smith as a prophet and our prophet today, Thomas Monson. Heavenly Father has answered my prayers. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ because it brings such happiness into my life. I know that I am a daughter of a loving Father in Heaven. That He loves me so much that He gave His Son, Jesus Christ, so that I might live with Him again. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that the principles taught in it will bring you closer to the Savior.

How I live my faith

I feel my greatest responsibility in living my faith is in my home. I am currently the mother of 3 boys and I take motherhood very seriously. I hope and pray that my children might recognize their Father in Heaven’s love because of the love they feel in our home. I pray and read the scriptures with my children daily. We also have family home evening once a week where we all take turns teaching the family about a gospel principle. I also help with the young women program in our church. I plan weekly activities for girls aged 12-17 and teach a lesson once a month on Sunday. I love the strength of the youth. They are truly amazing examples. I try to follow Jesus Christ and love my neighbor in all that I do and with everyone that I meet.
