About Me

Hi! I am Emily Ann S. I am a student currently studying childhood education. i love kids, and cooking, and hanging out with friends! I love reading and listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because being a part of the church is the first chance of happiness that I have ever truly experienced. i was raised a member, however, when I turned 16 I decided that the church had too many rules. I started going to other churches and didn't make the best choices in my life i had lost my self I no longer knew who I was, I didn't comprehend the value of my life. I had fallen to a level that I thought that there was no return from, because after all of mistakes why would the Lord want me? it was then that I decided that I was done feeling that low, I was done being unhappy. I went to the Lord I started praying and reading the scriptures, I had a friend who was about to go on a mission that I talked to about the questions that I had. I started feeling this happiness that I had never had before experienced. I finally knew and understood with every fibber of my being that I was a daughter of God. That Heavenly Father loved me and that I was important and that I was worth so much more then I even knew. Then one night as I was reading the scriptures I prayed to know if the things that i had been reading were true and that it was real. I was filled with this fire that I knew that the church was true. That the church had always been true, and that simple truth has made me so happy.
