Hi I'm Emily

I'm a Nanny, College Student, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in Idaho and I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in New York. Things about me are, I love to go on adventures! I like to walk, swim, and ride my bike to different places. I enjoy the outdoors and love the world our Heavenly Father has given us. I love Fall, it's my favorite time of the year! I enjoy being a nanny. I love animals! I love to read, especially the scriptures! I enjoy history and learning about new things. I love to make people laugh, and I love to laugh as well. Most of all, I have a deep and abiding testimony of the power of the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For a long time though I took it for granted. I didn't make the best of choices and I started to go down a not so good path. I came to the realization,though,that I had a purpose, I just didn't know what it was. So for the first time, in a very long time,I prayed to my Heavenly Father...and you know what? He answered me back! I felt a hundred times lighter, I felt peace, love and assurance. I had found my purpose. I am a Mormon because as I strive to live the commandments, do as God asks, and apply the Atonement of Jesus Christ daily, I am blessed. It is when I do these things that I can continue to feel the way I did, that night when I, with a troubled heart, came to know my purpose. I am a Mormon because I know with all my whole soul this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is Jesus Christ's true church upon the earth once more! I know God and His Beloved Son, called Joseph Smith to be a prophet in these latter-days to restore the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ once more to the world. I know the Book of Mormon to be true and a solid testament of our Savior Jesus Christ. I know inside and out how powerful the Atonement of Jesus Christ is. I have applied it daily in my life and the effects I feel from it has made me feel peace, joy, and happiness, I have no need to fear. I am a Mormon because I know it, I live it, and I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow in the footsteps of my Savior. I try my best everyday to read my scriptures, to pray, to serve and help others. I make it top priority to get to church each Sunday to take part of the Sacrement and to renew the promises I have made to my Heavenly Father. I am not perfect, and I do slip up and make mistakes, but as I follow God's commandments, and strive to do my best everyday to be more Christlike, my faith increases and I feel the continued love my Heavenly Father has for me.
