Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Mormon. and love it! :)

About Me

Hi I am Emily. I am Single and 22 years old. I attend Brigham Young University-Idaho. I love to be with my family and friends. Music is my passion. I love it more then anything. I have lived in the same city my whole life, but I now live in Rexburg Idaho. I am looking for someone that is perfect for me. I am ready to settle down which surprise a lot of people. I know I am young, but I dont party. I have a huge family that is very important to me. I dont have contact with my dad because he abused me.

Why I am a Mormon

About a five years ago, my ex boyfriend introduced me into the church. At first I wasnt so sure because I really wanted to be catholic and was really involved with that church. Then him and I made a deal. if he came to my church to see how my church worked then I would go to his. This went on every Sunday. Then about a month into going I did not want to go to my church any more. I felt more at home in the LDS church. He then went on a mission and my parents werent to happy that I was going to the LDS church but they supported me. I made a promise with my mom that after he left I had to wait 6 months to a year after he left to get baptized. I re took the lessons for the third time and I knew it was the right thing to do. So on Feb. 5th, 2012, I was a new member of the church with the calling of a Primary teacher. I have such a strong testimony that this church is true and that this is my home and my family. I know president Monson is a true prophet and that Joesph Smith was a true prophet. I know that book of Mormon is true. I love being Mormon and it was the best choice I have ever made.

How I live my faith

I used to be a primary teacher so I work alot with young kids. I love going to church every sunday. Every day I will tell someone that everything happens because it is the Lords plan for you. I try not to say to much about the gospel, but I know that if they ask more I can tell them a lot more. I try to post something new on Facebook about the gospel that I love to read. A lot of my non-member friends like what I post.

What is being a Mormon like?

I love being a Mormon. It was really hard to get used to because I did dress modest all the time but when I was baptized I felt something that I will remember forever. Being Mormon is hard at time because people will ask me "want to go party? Want to go drink? or Want to go Smoke?" But every time I tell them no. So then they ask why. I tell them that its looked upon because we need to stay clean for christ. He stayed clean for us so why cant we. I am so proud to tell the whole world that I am Mormon. We do alot with family and service work. In the church we do everything together. We are one big happy family. We all get along with each other. Show more Show less
