Hi I'm Emmy!

I love my family & friends! Music, acting, and reading are my favorite past times! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hello, I'm Emmy! I'm 20 years old, in college, and preparing to go on a mission! I've been acting ever since my freshmen year of high school. I love acting! It has helped me overcome being shy and has helped me be more out going. Also, it has strengthened my testimony. Being in Theatre and being a Mormon is not easy. But, it has brought up so many questions about what i believe in. Its pretty awesome! Thankfully, my friends have been supportive and respect my beliefs! I feel super blessed to have them in my life! I have made a lot of friends through Theatre and i wouldn't trade 'em for the world! My family is a huge part of my life! i love my family very much! There's 4 of us! My mom, dad, my sister, and me! My parents raised me and my sister in this gospel. My family has always been very supportive. I Thank Heavenly Father everyday for them!!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member all of my life, but i still had to discover for myself if the church was true. During high school my testimony wasn't very strong. I went to church but i went for the wrong reasons. I went because my parents told me to go. I lived the standers of the church to the best of my ability. It wasn't hard to live the standers, but with a weak testimony and not having enough faith, i wasn't happy. I soon realized something was missing in my life. I knew that somehow i needed to make this miserable feeling go away. At first i didn't think i was good enough to have the gospel back in my life. I asked a friend of mine some questions. She was great & was able to answer my questions. Then, there came a moment when i knelt down by my bed and prayed. I wasn't sure if i would receive my answer right away but overtime i did. As i kept praying and kept reading the book of mormon, that empty feeling i once had was gone. I am a Mormon because of this trial. Because i prayed & asked questions i know without a doubt in my mind that the Book of Mormon is true. I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church. I believe that we have a living prophet of this earth today and his name is Thomas S. Monson. Everyday i am still learning and growing. But, I can promise you that by following the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, you will see a difference in your life. With prayer, faith, and desire anything is possible.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live my faith everyday. Lately, i have been with the sister missionaries a lot. I've gone trackting with them and went to some lessons with them. Also, I went on a mini mission (A week long mission) to Zanesville Ohio. It was an amazing experience! Being with the missionaries is amazing! i have learned so much from them and have made amazing friendships! I feel very blessed to have been able to spend so much time with them. Heavenly Father knew i needed them and He made it possible for me to spend time with them and learn from them. They truly are amazing people. I can't thank them enough for all that they do. I look up to the missionaries so much! They are my heroes! My dream is to become an actress! That has been my dream for as long as i can remember. But, more importantly, my biggest dream is to become a full time missionary. I'm going to receive my call very soon. I am nervous and very excited to find out where the Lord wants me to serve! My friends and family are supportive and that has helped me a lot! I know that going on a mission is the right thing for me to do. The time i have spent with the sister missionaries has helped me realize that!
