Hi I'm Emily

I'm a California girl living in Seattle. I'm the mother of 4 boys, 1 girl. I like Dr. Who, gaming, the outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother of all boys. I love to bake, cook and can. Walking to the ocean and looking for sea glass makes me smile. Some days you'll catch me playing video games with my husband or boys and other days you'll catch me reading a book by the fire. I have a degree in Literature and writing, and I used it today to explain to my 9 year old the difference between "there," "they're," and "their." I also used it to make a batch of fun-dough, do a few loads of laundry and change a few or a lot of diapers.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because there is no other place where I feel the peace, serenity and joy that comes from being a member of His church. I'm an avid lover of books, but there is no feeling that rivals the feeling that I have while reading the Book of Mormon. As an avid photography hobbyist, I love beautiful places, but nothing compares to the feeling of serenity and love that embraces me as I walk through the temple doors. As a mother of 4 energetic boys, nothing refuels my tanks every week like sitting in church and being filled from head to toe with the tools I needs to not only survive the next week, but to charge into it with a positive attitude. All these feelings combined testify of the truth and perfection of His gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith my attending meetings on Sundays. I've served in various areas of the church. A few of my favorite opportunities were to serve as a full time missionary in Japan and organizing activities and service projects for women 18 and older. It's rewarding to see how as women in Christ we grow closer and I witness random acts of kindness daily. There is so much love and sisterhood in this Gospel, it's a great feeling know that no one is really left behind.
