Hi I'm Emily

I love to laugh and have fun. That's probably why I'm always smiling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love life! I enjoy hiking, boating and anything adventurous. My favorite thing to do is run, mostly trails and up the canyon. I also love to sing and dance. My bestie is my sister, our favorite pastime is eating ice cream and watching movies. I am a student at Brigham Young University and working towards my master's degree in speech pathology. Something that makes me most happy is working with children, especially children with autism.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but always had a strong desire to know for myself why it was the only true church. I was surrounded by so many good people and my parents who had firm testimonies in Jesus Christ. I knew this wasn't enough and that I had to find out for myself. My conversion has been a process. When I wanted to know for myself this was the true church I read the Book of Mormon. I recieved my answer, but it has been through difficult trials and challenges that I learned I had to rely on my Savior rather than my parent's testimonies. Through these times I have found the gospel of Jesus Christ as my anchor. I can have hope when I feel hopeless, and peace with life's uncertainties. I can honestly say I have found all my answers to life through the gospel of Jesus Christ. It makes me so happy and helps me to remember my worth in this life and that God loves me. I know with this knowledge that if everything is taken away from me I will always have my Savior who knows me and cares about me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by action and countenance. I love to smile because it is a way I show my inner devotion I have for my savior Jesus Christ and the happiness his gospel brings me. I also share my faith of Jesus Christ to everyone I can while serving a mission. I share with people how The gospel of Jesus Christ can help them with what ever they are going through and it can give them happiness that they can't find anywhere else
