Hi I'm Emily

I love music, my country, and life! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of six kids in an amazing family. My parents have been married for thirty years and are great examples. I absolutely love my family. I'm about to embark on a mission to teach the glorious hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for eighteen months! I am more than excited to spend my time teaching about what I love most! I decided to serve a mission because the Gospel is what has brought me peace and joy and I want to share that with others! I play basketball and I love most sports. Athletics are a huge part of my life. I also enjoy running and ran a half-marathon in high school. I also love music! I sing and play the viola and piano! Dancing to and singing loudly and obnoxiously to the radio are some of my favorite activities!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon! I don't think that I could even begin to try to navigate life without the Gospel to direct me. Most people aren't sure who they are or even who to trust. It's the time that most question what they believe. Even though I've been LDS my whole life, I am still a convert. I remember kneeling on my bed, and asking God if he really existed. I asked him to just help me know if He was there. I didn't hear a voice or anything, but I felt this burning inside that just felt right, and I knew that God exists. I'm still on that path to conversion. One of the biggest reasons I am a member of this church is because it brings me peace, no matter how I feel. I can feel peace when I'm confused, angry, afraid, anything. When I pray and listen and study my scriptures, I feel peace in my heart. My problems don't go away but I feel HAPPY! I also feel loved. I love this church because it has guided me to feel my Savior's love. Through the Gospel, I have felt that I am a special daughter of God and that He loves me unconditionally and that He wants me to succeed. Most of all, I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true! It is His church on this Earth today!

How I live my faith

I also just do my best to try to pattern my life after Christ's. I do my best to live my faith by being the best person that I can be. I try to show others how much Christ loves each and every one of us in the way I live my life.
