Hi I'm Emery

I am a student, and a tutor at the local community college. I am a Mormon

About Me

I was a student at a community college studying psychology. I graduated and plan to attend a university later. I play the piano, research for my studies, hike the Sierra Nevadas, and mountain bike. Right now I am serving a mission for Jesus Christ, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the closeness that I feel to Jesus Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored church of Jesus Christ. The teachings, and ordinances are what brings us closer to Christ. The Book of Mormon, and the Bible go hand in hand and teach us about Christ and God. Everyday I am able to read the scriptures, participate at church and develop a relationship closer to God and Christ. And I know that everyday as I sincerely study the scriptures, my studies, and pray that I am growing closer to God and Christ.

How I live my faith

I served in many positions of my local congregation. I was a pianist for the congregation. I also served as an assistant to the Bishop, helping him with the sick and infirm members of the congregation. I also help people for the fun of it. I was helping some of my friends at the community college one day and a tutor saw me helping me and asked me to become a tutor. It is because of my faith in Jesus Christ that I am so anxious in helping people.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Have you ever seen a good movie, read a good book, or hiked a mountain with an amazing view? I know that I have and my first response is to tell my friends and family about how funny it was, how the scenery was, or just how much I enjoyed it. Likewise, the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me a great amount of happiness and I want to share it with my family, friends and anyone who will listen. There are missionaries who volunteer to preach for eighteen or twenty-four months. These missionaries have seen the happiness that the Gospel brings and want to share it with anyone who wants to listen. Show more Show less
