Hi I'm Emily

I'm a knitter. I'm a mother. I'm a teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a pretty normal person. After teaching school for 10 years, I have recently made the adjustment to being a stay at home mom. I enjoy playing with my two kids, learning how to cook, and finally having time to clean the house! My husband is not a member, but he is the love of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. It gives me a solid foundation to stand on. Without it, my moral compass would point me in all kinds of wrong directions. It gives me the strength to get up every morning and smile through the day. It teaches me why I'm here, what I need to do, and where I'm going.

How I live my faith

As I said, I recently became a stay at home mom. This has been a big change for me. But I know that as a woman and as a mom, my greatest calling is to rear children. I loved my job as a teacher. I loved working with children each day, and now that I have my own it's important to me to be present with them. This involves making big sacrifice. We have to live by a strict budget, and there are not a lot of extras right now, but I know that I am doing the work of The Lord inside the walls of my home.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Emily
To me, science is the study of God. Every time a new discovery is made, or a law of nature defined. I realize that the God of nature already knows that. He knows the intricacies of everything, and He is just leading us to those answers. Everything about the way the universe and all that is in it works testifies to me that there is a God.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Emily
A testimony is a strong belief in a spiritual thing. It's affirmed by the Holy Ghost, or the spirit of truth. Anyone can gain a testimony. It's marked by the "warm fuzzy" feeling you get when you know something's right. Show more Show less
