Hi I'm Emily

I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

I enjoy doing anything that involves learning. Learning is the most favorite thing for me to do because learning means growing, it means I am expanding my horizons. I am one person who loves trying new things, I love the world and everything it haves to offer. I love traveling! I enjoy the seasons, reading, camping, exercise, spending time with loved ones, singing, dancing, being crazy, and serving others. I am currently serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving for 18 months in Mesa Arizona. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others has always been something that I have wanted to do since very young. I didn't really think about going on mission until I was 14 years old. My aunt told me she could see me going. Ever since that time it has become a goal of mine. I am on a mission now and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known the church to be the true church of Jesus Christ. I grew up with countless personal experiences that bear witness to me that Heavenly Father is real. I was a very active member as a child. I felt the Holy Ghost, I felt in my heart that I was doing those things that were pleasing to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The closer I followed the commandments the closer I felt to Jesus Christ and the happier I was. In my collage years my faith was put to the test. After many trials I lost much of my faith and testimony. But one night I had a life changing experience. In result, I dropped my perfect life with out God. I dropped it, left it behind. I left cause even though I had what seemed to be the perfect life it was not a life that would bring me closer to my Heavenly Father and ultimately not what I wanted. God knew that and sent an angel, He sent many angels to rescue me! I know with everything that is in me that I am a daughter of God. I need my Savior, I need to follow Him and be the very best Emily that I can be because God expects nothing more and nothing less. I know that my life would have no meaning, I would be nothing without my Savior. I am Mormon because this is where you find truth, friends, family, happiness, peace, comfort, joy, wisdom, the Holy Ghost. This is the straight and narrow back to Heavenly Father. This is the Lords way. You can know it to. Open a Book of Mormon read it and pray and you will get an answer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to follow in the footsteps of the Savior. These things consist of obeying Heavenly Father, inviting others to come unto Christ. Repentance is key. As I repent of my sins I can start fresh with no mistakes. I draw closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I pray and read the scriptures. These are very important for the scriptures testify of Christ and by lacking in reading the scripture you deny yourself the blessing and strength that come from reading those testimonies. The Book of Mormon is my shield along with prayer to help me withstand temptations of the world. Service is one of the best ways to live in faith. I do my visiting teaching and am always looking for ways to help others around me. Sometimes I don't understand things, not always do things make since but by leaning not unto my own understanding and putting that faith in the Lord. That is the best way I can live my faith, because, it is not up to me, it is up to the Lord, He is God, what he says goes, and because he is a loving Heavenly Father he wont ask us to do anything that will not bring us complete joy.
