Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Idaho and Utah. I am a wife, mother, and dental hygienist. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a wife to my high school sweetheart and mother to four awesome kids. I spend most of my time chasing after my four munchkins. I also spend time working with my husband as his favorite dental hygienist! We purchased a dental practice in Central Texas and are busy trying to make our American Dream happen. My favorite season is Fall because of the crisp air, autumn smells, and college football. Ohio State Buckeyes are #1 in our household. I enjoy running and being outside. Reading is one of my passions but I have to be careful when starting a new book --- I tend to forget to eat or sleep when I get into a great book. My favorite snack is candy corns and peanuts mixed together or chocolate covered cinnamon bears. Life is never dull but I like it that way!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the principles taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are true. I know my Savior Jesus Christ atoned and died for me. Jesus Christ has made it possible for me to live with my family forever. I know that we have a living prophet today that receives revelation in this dispensation. How grateful I am that the power of the Priesthood is once again here on the Earth. I am a Mormon because by living the teachings I am becoming a better person. I feel the peace it brings into my life and I can't imagine living without the knowledge that I have a loving Heavenly Father who sent His son, Jesus Christ to pave the way for me to return Home again someday.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by serving and loving others. I have the opportunity to coordinate monthly visits to all the women in our congregation. It is an amazing to see women come together to serve, love and visit one another. True friendships are created and endless service is rendered and I get to see all of that come about. I try to live my faith each day and become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ by showing unconditional love to others and trying to be a good Christian in all of my actions.
