Hi I'm Emily

I'm a soccer player, I'm a big sister, I'm going on a mission to Germany, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up playing soccer all the time! I was involved on the school team and in competitive leagues where we traveled around the western USA for tournaments. I went to BYU for two and a half years and loved every minute of it! Most of all I'm a big sister. I'm one of 7 kids in my family. I have three older and three younger. I'm the oldest one in the house now and my best friend is my five year old sister! I also am a mommy to the best golden retriever puppy in the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love what this Gospel teaches and how it blesses families. I know that God loves each and every one of his children and that he has a plan for each of us. He has a plan that allows families to be together forever! That is such a blessing to me. I know that families are eternal. I know that Christ died for me and that he lives again to help us through our trials and that he will come again. There is continuing revelation today! The Lord has not forgotten us, but loves us very much. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and that through revelation he was able to restore the one true Church to the earth today. I know that President Monson was called of God and leads His church on the earth today. I know that through him God let's us know His will for us. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It doesn't replace the Bible, but rather accompanies it. I know that by reading the Book of Mormon you will come to know Christ and gain a testimony of Him and know that he loves you. I know that this gospel will give you comfort and strengthen you in times of need. The joy that comes from knowing Christ and living your life in accordance to God's will will bless you. I know these things to be true with all of my heart and that is why I've decided to serve my God for the next year and a half. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily. I love this gospel more than anything in the whole world. Because of my love of this Gospel, I've decided to leave for a mission. I leave for the Germany Frankfurt mission in one week!! I live my faith by reading my scriptures daily and studying Preach My Gospel so that I can be an effective missionary in sharing what has caused me to have so much happiness in my life, so that they might have that joy as well! I can't wait to be an instrument in His hands and to serve the people of Germany!
