Hi I'm Emily

I've lived in Sandy, Utah my whole life and am preparing to serve in the Chile Concepcion South mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Like many young adults, music plays a huge role in my life. I absolutely love to sing. I love to learn about it, I love listening to it, and I most certainly love doing it. I've never planned to do it as a profession, but I like to think that I can bless others with my gift. My family and friends play an enormous part in my life as well. I find such joy in simply being around all these people that I love. I'm leaving soon to serve a mission in Chile, and I couldn't be more excited! (and nervous) This gospel is what makes me the most happy in life, and I feel that without it, I wouldn't know true joy. Heavenly Father has made it possible for me to serve, and I am so grateful for the opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know for myself that this church is true! Growing up in the church, I definitely didn't have as hard a time as others. But that doesn't by any means suggest that I don't have a sure testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel myself. As I moved out to college this past year, I've had to struggle through things I never even imagined. But because of these hard things, I've been able to grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know and understand that Christ is the one and only way to Eternal life. Most of all, I know that God sincerely loves me, and knows what's in my heart. Even at the lowest points in my life, there was never a time when I could not feel His love for me. I know that this gospel is the source of all my happiness, and I can hardly wait to go share it with others.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I'm currently helping to plan activities for the women in the ward to participate in. I'm only nineteen, so this is actually my first calling. Before this, I helped out as a leader in my young women groups. However, I have also learned that I don't need a calling to be of service to others. There's always someone who can use an extra hand if you keep your eye out!
