Hi I'm Emma Luthi Price

I am a mother of a cancer fighter. I am a student of the arts and all things uplifting and beautiful. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was blessed to grow up in a strong LDS household with wonderful parents and four very loud and very active younger sisters. I am currently going to Brigham Young University studying the humanities. Art, music and literature of all kinds has always fascinated me. I love how the Lord inspires so many people to create masterfully beautiful things to uplift and inspire others as well as make the world a more beautiful place. Learning to use and to foster the talents and abilities the Lord has given to us for the elevation of the mind and the spirit is something I want to help others appreciate. There is so much capacity for beauty and love and joy in the world and that power is contained within each one of us. People just need to understand how to let it out and the world will be so much better for it.

Why I am a Mormon

The Lord knows me. The gospel of Jesus Christ found fully restored in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, provides a soothing balm against the afflictions brought on by the hardened and angry hearts of people. There is so much pain and sadness in the world but Jesus Christ's sacrifice - his suffering both in the garden of Gethsemane and his suffering and death on the cross - not only saves us from our sins if we believe on His name, keep his commandments and partake of the ordinances He instituted but heals our hearts. Christ himself said in Luke 4:18-21, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord . . . And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears." He came to world to heal our wounds. We all fall short and often during that fall our heart and spirits are wounded along the way but the Lord knows our sufferings intimately. The ancient prophet Alma said in Alma 7:11-12 tell us that "he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities." The Lord knows me. He suffered my earthly pains - emotional and physical, my sicknesses, my loneliness before I ever had to. He knows how to succor and comfort me. His atonement and resurrection raises us up from the corrupted world to one of peace, kindness and joy. That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love working in my ward. So many different kinds of people and backgrounds to learn from and I know their individual experiences can help me understand my relationship with the Father and the Son in different and exciting new ways. I serve in the Family Home Evening committee and I love how much I get to see the Lord working in people's lives in the Ward Council. Every single calling is inspired and the Lord knows exactly what we need. There is so much power in serving as part of a church family where everyone is striving to learn and understand and become more like our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love making food for people and having them come over and eat it and enjoy it with me. I love serving and giving of myself because every time I do, I get back so much more then I receive. That's what the gospel is all about. And it gives me so much hope. I just love it!
