Hi I'm Emily Wilson

I'm an ice cream enthusiast, an outdoor junkie, I love dirt bikes and boating, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and I love the desert! I love being outdoors, and enjoy doing anything from camping to scuba diving. I love riding my dirt bike and boating with my family and friends. Family, dogs, and Christmas are what make me the happiest.

Why I am a Mormon

I love science, and I like to understand the "why" behind everything. Naturally, that has led me to have lots of questions about religion and why people believe the things they do. Over time, my questions have gotten deeper, and I've spent more time searching for answers. Every time I am honestly seeking answers, I am able to find them here in this Church! The doctrines we teach make sense, both intellectually and spiritually. I love that the Church encourages us to learn, and to look for answers to our questions. If we sincerely search the scriptures and go to God in prayer, we will find answers to our questions, and I've found those answers here! I'm also a Mormon because family means everything to me. I've found that the Church teaches us how to have the happiest, most successful family in this life and in eternity. I was blessed to be born into a stellar family, and I believe the teachings of the Church has impacted that a lot. Living the teachings of this Church has brought me peace and happiness, and I feel very close to God being where I am!

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving an 18 month, full-time mission for the Church in Washington DC. Growing up, I participated in various youth organizations which were centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ and service.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

One of the 12 Apostles said that the Church always has been, and always will be a missionary church. That's just how it is! We teach because it's true! It's something that everybody needs, and we're here to share it with them. Show more Show less
