Hi I'm Emily
I'm a student, employee, occasional food blogger, and aspiring programmer. I'm an average person with lofty dreams. I'm a Mormon.
I graduated in Dietetics and am returning to school for Computer Science. When I'm not working or studying, I love to play the piano, cook, write about food, read, and watch movies. My favorite thing to do is to have fun with family and friends.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I want to be! I find true peace and happiness by trying to live the principles taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been taught the doctrines of this faith my entire life, and after studying the gospel for myself and praying about it, I know it to be true. I know this is the true church of Jesus Christ. My life has taken many unexpected turns, but my faith in Jesus Christ and His church is the one thing that has remained constant and that I have always felt certain of. As a member of the LDS church, I know what my life's purpose is: to seek the help of my Savior Jesus Christ in overcoming sins and weaknesses so that I may return to the presence of our Father in Heaven. I know Heavenly Father loves each of us and wants us all to enjoy eternal life with Him. I love the LDS Church because it teaches me that even though life is difficult, Heavenly Father wants us to be happy, and He has provided a Savior to help us overcome all difficulties and unfairness.
How I live my faith
I get to attend church each week with about 200 other people in my community who believe the same things that I do. I am strengthened as I hear them share their knowledge of true principles and their experiences of living according to that knowledge. I try to be a better person each day, and I'm grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, which makes it possible for me to improve and leave behind my mistakes. I believe that God is the literal Father of our spirits and that by praying to Him, reading His words, and obeying His commandments given through ancient and modern prophets we can have peace and joy even during stressful times.
