Hi I'm Emilie Davis

I am a student at BYU studying Human Development. I had the chance to live in Jerusalem for a semester. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in American Fork, Utah and graduated from American Fork High School. I am a BYU student. I was married to my high school sweetheart in the Salt Lake Temple after returning from a Study Abroad in Jerusalem in spring 2012. I have an amazing family and a great golden retriever named, Indy. I love to sing, hike, participate in theater and learn. I have a special interest in families. I hope to be able to serve families around the world after I graduate.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the LDS Church and I have developed a testimony of the Savior over time. Through faith and prayer, I discovered for myself that Jesus Christ lives and loves us. When I discovered this for myself, I wanted to be a part of His work with all my heart. The most beautiful thing about the Mormon faith is that it is centered around Jesus Christ and eternal families. In the LDS church, we believe that we can be with our families forever through the sacrifice of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Why wouldn't I want to believe that? I lost my sister, Jessica, when I was seven. She was still a baby when she died and I never got the chance to watch her grow or get to know her, but I know we will be together again. That is why I am a Mormon. I want to be with my family forever and I know that someday, I will be able to be with Jessica again. What a miracle.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am the primary chorister in my ward. "Primary" is the program within the LDS church that is specifically for children to participate in until they are twelve. I have the opportunity to teach the children about Christ through music. We feel the Holy Ghost as we sing songs about Jesus. I have a special love for little children. I hope to prepare the rising generation to act in faith and to know their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
