Hi I'm Emily

I enjoy swimming. I love violin, piano, and singing. I like to sew, crochet, and bake. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoyed competing in high school varsity swimming. I am not the best swimmer, but I enjoy it and it is a great activity to be healthy and to accomplish goals. :) I also love to play my violin. I am majoring in music. I want to be a private violin teacher. I love to play music. I also play piano. I like to play hymns. I also love Jon Schmit's piano music! It's amazing! I love to read things like Harry Potter. I like classic novels and fantasy novels. My favorite book in the whole wide world is The Book of Mormon. :) I enjoy crocheting! Crocheting is such a fun activity and you can make fun little homemade gifts.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. I was raised in this gospel. I participated in programs that the church provides. I've learned to read scriptures and pray. There is no doubt to me that God lives and that he loves his children very much. Everything on the earth shows that there is a God. I have read the Book of Mormon and the Holy Spirit testifies to me that it is true. The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ. The living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, and the many prophets before him have testified of Christ. I have a great faith in this church. I believe with my whole heart that it is true.

How I live my faith

I try to fulfill my visiting teaching duties. Visiting teaching is an opportunity to talk to other women within the church and try to serve them.

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It testifies of Christ. It is a record of ancient prophets who lived in the American continent. It started when an ancient prophet Lehi left Jerusalem as commanded by God. God commanded his family to come to America. The Book of Mormon is the record of the prophets after Lehi. It also records Christ visiting these people in America after His Resurrection. Show more Show less
