Hi I'm Emily
I'm a college graduate. I'm married to my best friend. I have two crazy but cute kids. I love running, travelling and cooking. I enjoy reading non-fiction books, especially about nutrition, childbirth and social issues.
Why I am a Mormon
I'm a Mormon because it is through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that I have come to know and love my Savior Jesus Christ. I love the message found in the Bible and the Book of Mormon to seek after Charity, the pure love of Christ. It is my life goal to have Charity and Christ's image engraved on my countenance.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer plays a very important part in my life. I try to pray on a daily basis to thank God for all of my blessings and to ask for the things I feel I need. When I need peace and direction, I am always amazed by the comfort and guidance I receive after sincere prayer.
Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?
The way I aspire to share the gospel with others is through living it. I am drawn to the idea credited to Saint Francis of Assisi, "Preach the gospel at all times and if necessary, use words." I truly think the best way to share the gospel is through loving and serving others as Jesus taught.
How has attending Church services helped you?
At church we renew our covenants of baptism through taking the sacrament. This weekly reminder of my covenant to follow the Savior helps me to feel purpose in my life and motivates me to be a better person.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by trying to follow Christ's teachings of loving others, mourning with those who mourn and avoiding judgement of others. I strive to follow God's will for me and I find comfort daily in the amazing gift of the atonement.
