Hi I'm Emily Leue

I was born #5 of 8 kids. I moved from San Diego to Utah to go to school, where I met my husband, Phil. We are happy. We're Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dental hygienist, working to help my husband finish school to be an automotive mechanic. I'm a referee for high school basketball and volleyball. I love finding good bargains for clothes or home decor. I'm trying to get better at gardening and family history. We've been married for almost three years and can't wait to have kids soon!

Why I am a Mormon

I want to live with my family forever. I believe that God, our Heavenly Father, created and organized us into families because that is how He lives, and He wants us to be like Him. Within our families on earth, we learn life's most valuable lessons and experience the greatest joys, along the greatest challenges. In the temple, we make promises to God to follow His commandments and His prophet, and He, in turn, promises that we can live in family units forever, even after death. Living my life according to wholesome values helps me feel peace, and I am reassured by the Atonement of Jesus Christ that my mistakes can be forgiven when I commit to improve and serve others around me.

How I live my faith

I believe the greatest way we can serve God is by serving each other, especially our families. I get to spend time with the Young Women at church, and it's a great opportunity to share what I believe with them and how choices I've made as a teenager have affected the rest of my life for the better. It's such an honor to share that with them and invite them to choose to follow the prophet and the Savior by making daily decisions to live the way He lived. My husband also works with the Young Men, and serving the youth together has strengthened our marriage as we remind ourselves what's most important to us, and the choices we make that affect our future family. We love inviting them into our home and share the Spirit of peace that we try to maintain. It's a good reminder to keep our relationship as strong and peaceful as we can so they can feel it too.
