Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised here in Colorado as the tenth child in a family of eleven. Now that all of the kids are grown up, it is a big party every time we all get together. I am a recent graduate with a degree in history. I love museums and hope to eventually have the opportunity to work as an archivist.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents worked hard to educate all their children with a knowledge of the Gospel of Christ. Until the age of twelve, I relied on the testimony, experience and example of my parents and older siblings as a witness to me that I needed to continue attending this church and acting according to its principles. As I grew older, however, I began to realize that I needed more than the word of my family, no matter how true it was. I needed to know for my self if I was to have the strong testimony of Christ and his love for me personally if I was to endure the hardships of life. Through constant prayer and scripture study I was able to gain that testimony that I lacked before. Over a long period of time, my testimony grew line upon line. Though I know without a doubt of the love that God and Jesus Christ have for me, I will never be done in working to strengthen my testimony. I am a Mormon because I feel closest to my Heavenly Father when I live by the teachings and doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

One of the ways that I live my faith is by accepting responsibilities given to me by my church leaders. I am working as a family history coordinator in Denver. I am there to help both Mormon members and those not of my faith to find their ancestors through the internet and other sources available. As one of the things that the Mormon church is known for, I help those who want to research their ancestors have a successful and good experience both with doing family history and more importantly, with the Mormon church.
