Hi I'm Emily

I'm the youngest of five children, I'm always up for an adventure and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time outdoors-especially while laying in a hammock. I like to cook, journal, play the violin and spend time with friends. I like when plans don't go exactly how they are planned because things turn out more memorable.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to live the gospel because my relationship with my Savior that I have been able to develop by reading the Book of Mormon and praying has filled my life with inexplicable happiness. Christ's gospel gives me peace even in the midst of the confusion and darkness of the world. The Holy Ghost testifies to me daily of the truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. God has proven time and time again that He loves me, has a plan for me, and wants me to be happy. Because of this love, He has provided the gift of His Son and through Christ's Atonement, we are able to repent and become clean and are given the strength we need to endure faithfully.

How I live my faith

In high school I helped organize activities for the youth in my neighborhood. In college I was the secretary for the group of young adult women. My responsibilities included keeping records of church attendance and visiting assignments, planning activities, making announcements and teaching lessons.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

There's no need to take the word of anybody else. God wants you to know for yourself about His truths. If you truly ask God in prayer to confirm the truthfulness of the Church, he will answer your prayer. He might not answer the way you expect but the answer will come. When you are seeking out truth and goodness, Satan will try to do everything in his power to discourage you, so be careful to let your faith guide, not your doubt. Write down how you feel when God confirms truth and then when you are going through times of doubt, read what you wrote and remember how you felt when you knew with assurance that the Church and Book of Mormon are true. Once you have received that witness, don't assume you never need ask again. Ask often. Ask when you feel prompted so that you continue to strengthen and further your knowledge. Show more Show less
