Hi I'm Emma

I'm a Texan. I can twirl fire. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a baton twirler for my high school and on homecoming we got to twirl fire. I am now a cashier at Walmart. I love reading and history but not together! I plan on attending Brigham Young University in Idaho after my mission to Brazil. My best friend is my little sister Tori, who has down syndrome.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born Mormon. But I've stayed that way because I know that this church is true. So many times I have seen and felt the Holy Spirit with me comforting me and guiding me away from the path of sin. I know that my prayers can be answered even if it is a small matter, Heavenly Father cares and helps you. At church camp my inactive friend lost her camp shirt we were suppose to wear that day, she started freaking out as we were already running late. We tore the room apart and the bathroom, yet it was no where to be found. So in great faith my friend got down on her knees and asked me to help her pray. I told her just to ask Heavenly Father what she wanted, so she did and as she said "amen" our other roommate jumped up and ran to the bathroom. She came out holding the lost shirt. It was on the back of the doornob. We would have never found it, if not for the Holy Spirit's help.

How I live my faith

In church I lead the music and teach the 5 & 6 year old class. In high school my favorite quote to tell my nonmember friends was "Modest is hottest!!" but now it's "Keep your head, heels, and standards high!!" I like that quote because it's a fun way of saying "stand tall and remember who you are!!"

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

No. The church encourages you to vote but to vote your conscience, meaning vote for whichever candidate you feel best represents your morals and values. Show more Show less
