Hi I'm Emma

I love to learn. I love my family. I love my faith. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm am a college student studying Biology. My life is changing and uncertain. It is scary, but with the Lord on my side I know that I can do anything. My faith makes me strong.

Why I am a Mormon

The best way that I have found to gain a testimony of this gospel and its principles is to test it. One of the best things about this church is that there is little or no risk in trying it. I wanted a knowledge of the Book of Mormon, so I read it. All it took was some time and some thought and prayer. I asked if it was true and got my answer. I wanted a testimony of the Lord's love for me, so I asked and felt His love for me. As I have learned about the gospel I have come to believe and to know that this church is Jesus Christ's church on the earth today and that it was restored by a true prophet. I have seen and heard about miracles in these times. We have a living prophet who speaks to us and gives us counsel from God. I know this to be true because I have asked; I have practiced my faith.

How I live my faith

I try to live after the example of Jesus Christ everyday. I am not perfect and make mistakes, but I do my best. I try to listen to the Spirit and do what God would have me do. I try to serve others and show them that I love them. The church is all about service. To me living my faith is all about taking the principles of the gospel that I learn and implementing them in my life. I try to live what I know and be a good example to others.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Emma
We do proxy baptisms for those who are dead so that they can have the same chances at salvation as we have. Not everyone has had the chance to hear or accept the gospel in life but God loves all of His children enough to give them the opportunity to accept the gospel after they have died.
