Hi I'm Emily

I like to go on walks and bike rides with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a southern girl who's now living in the Northwest with my wonderful husband and four kids. I like to cook, read, sing, create, bake with my kids and be outside with my family enjoying nature. I love being a stay at home Mom and experiencing the daily ups and downs parenting brings. When I'm not cleaning up a mess, kissing an owie, or making someone a snack, I'm the bookkeeper for my husband's dental practice.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have a testimony of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know Heavenly Father knows each of us by name. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy, and I know the church is true. My prayers have been answered and I have felt the Spirit bear witness to me that fact. Although I was raised in the church, I grew up in a place where there were not many members. The gospel carried me through and provided me the opportunity to show others what I believe. I also have had many experiences in my life that continually reaffirm to me that this gospel is true. When I was sixteen, my Mom was diagnosed with cancer. Heavenly Father was there through it all and helped me persevere when times were really difficult. My faith increased tremendously and my relationship with my Heavenly Father grew.

How I live my faith

I love attending church each Sunday with my family. I'm always uplifted and recharged for the week ahead. Reading my scriptures and saying my prayers daily also helps strengthen me. One night a week as a family, we set aside time to discuss the gospel and enjoy an activity together. I like to be involved in my children's school by volunteering and attending activities, and we look for ways to serve others in the community. Over the years, I have done many different things through church service. Right now I'm serving with the youth. I enjoy being with them each Sunday and during the week, when we have an activity night. I love their Spirits and their zest for life!
