Hi I'm Emma

I grew up in Gloucestershire, England, I love working with animals and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have an older brother and sister and a mother and father who are all still strong in the church. My favourite hobbies are horse riding and art. I have completed high school and hope to go to either college or university to study horse management or animal behavior. I got married in the summer of 2012 in the London, England Temple. In the future I hope to have children, have lots of horses and work with animals.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe that it is the true church on the Earth today. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and translated the Book of Mormon. I have been a member all my life but gained a full testimony when I was 12. My Sunday School teacher challenged us to read Joseph Smith's story and then pray, asking if the Book of Mormon was true. When I prayed, I had an overwhelming feeling of peace and I knew in my heart that it was true. I have never doubted it. The gospel makes me happy because I know that Heavenly father has a plan for me. I know that I am a daughter of God and He loves me and watches over me. My desire is for the world to feel to peace and happiness I do from from being a Mormon and living this gospel.

How I live my faith

At church, I have a calling to represent the 18-30 year olds. I try to teach them, organise activities for them and fellowship them. Each day I try to be an example of my Faith. I keep my standards and look for opportunities to serve.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Through studying the scriptures on a daily basis you can come to know your Heavenly Father. You can know His teachings and learn of how much He loves His children. you can know, through scripture, God's Plan for us. Pray to Him regularly and sincerely. Do not hesitate to tell him everything that you are feeling. He knows you. By praying, you can gain a personal relationship with God and can feel the peace that comes from Him. You will feel that He is there. You will know that He is there and will know what His plan is, specific to you. Show more Show less
