Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Mormon. I am the mother of six young children. I believe in hope and the future.

About Me

I love being a mother and having a family. I spend my time driving my children to school and their many activities, reading good books, refinishing furniture, antique shopping, and learning more about photography. I enjoy gardening and cooking healthy meals for my family. I love living in Colorado and being outdoors to see all of its beauty.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that because I am imperfect, I need Jesus Christ as my Savior. I am comforted knowing that He loves me, along with a patient Father and Mother in Heaven, and that they have a plan for me. I believe that with God and Jesus Christ as my guide, I can be assured knowing that all will be well.

How I live my faith

On Sundays I have the opportunity to teach lessons to a class of six and seven year old children. I enjoy visiting with other women around me and sharing what we learn with each other. I assist my husband in teaching our children weekly Family Home Evening lessons and studying the scriptures with them in our home each night. I love listening to my children pray and am comforted knowing that in this world they have a Father in Heaven to turn to in prayer and a loving Savior to forgive them as they learn and grow.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints gives me a wonderful freedom in how I live. I live with a network of people around me who support me in my role of mother and in raising my family. I find happiness in knowing that God has a plan for me and helps me along that path. I find freedom in keeping the commandments and refraining from substances and activities which could be harmful and addictive to my body, as well as damaging my soul. I enjoy living a thrifty, frugal lifestyle while still enjoying the beauties the world has to offer. I feel peace as I teach my children about a Heavenly Father who loves them, a Savior who is forgiving, and commandments that will help guide their lives. Show more Show less
