Hi I'm Emily

I am from Denver and just graduated with my degree in ceramics. I love to talk, write and make pots. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Denver Colorado and I just graduated from college with my degree in book binding and ceramics. I have a lot of aspirations in life. I want to sell art, write a book and travel! I am serving a mission for the church just now, but afterward I am thinking of getting my masters in English, living a couple years in New York City and touring Europe. When I settle down, I want to own my own studio. The likeliness of all that happening? We shall see. I love to talk and party. I like having fun especially in the sun. I am pretty flexiable I love the city, I love the country. I would say my favorite past times other then art, is riding the subway and camping! I kind of fit the stereotypical crazy artist lady.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and faith in the church was pretty easy for me. I knew it was true and it wasn’t too hard to follow. My sophomore year of college, my parents were getting a divorce and my faith was more then a little rocked. One night I prayed to know if God was there and I have never felt such a feeling in my life. I know I am a daughter of God and He has given me strength to overcome so many hardships. I know I am here for a purpose, to get back to my Heavenly Father and to be happy, and the gospel of Jesus Christ has shown me how to do just that!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission, which means I teach people about the where they came from, why they are here and where they are going and how to get there. But I have done a lot of things in the church. I have helped set up a lot of the meetings we have as members, strengthening the sisters at church. I love people and I strive to live as Christ did, serving others and being happy!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testiment of Jesus Christ, it was written at the same time as the Bible in the Americas. Prophets from the Americas wrote down the sacred happenings of their people which it is in the Book of Mormon. The Bible was changed from the oringinal text, but the Book of Mormon was translated by the power of God and has all the truths of the Gospel. Reading it will bring a person closer to God. I know that becuase I have experienced it. The words written in this book are truly the words the Lord would have us hear. Show more Show less
