Hi I'm Emily.

I'm a just finishing up by sophomore year at Brigham Young University in Idaho and I love every minute of it! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am loving the college experience at BYU-Idaho, staying busy by doing homework and studying, while still leaving time for fun. I love meeting new people laughing, and having fun. I absolutely love to spend time with my family more than anything. I love the rain but will not complain if the sun is shining. I love to play basketball, watch movies, and you can almost always find me curled up with a book.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. I am not only a member of this faith because I was born in the church but also because I believe it is the true church on this earth. I believe in everything the church stands for and I truly believe in everything it teaches. I have become converted to the gospel by living everyday like I know I should, choosing to make the right decisions, reading and studying my scriptures, praying to my father in heaven, and by making it a continuing process. I know that I am loved by a Heavenly Father, and Savior and that they will never stop loving me. I know I can be made perfect through the atonement and I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today. I know the Book of Mormon is the words of prophets of old and it is one way our Father in Heaven can communicate with me. I am so grateful I have the Book of Mormon to read everyday. I know that families can be together forever and I am grateful to have such a family. I know that this is the true and eternal gospel on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good example, to those around me, whether the are LDS or of a different faith. I try to do my best and be my best in every aspect and every day of my life. I try to emulate the Savior in everything I do by choosing the right, standing up for what I believe, and by being a disciple of Christ. I know there are things that I can do to be better but it comforts me knowing I will always be forgiven and loved by my Savior and Heavenly Father. I am so blessed to have their endless love!
