Hi I'm Emma Winkler

I love music, adventures, horses and the sunshine. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a Mormon all my life. I have a wonderful family which consists of my parents, me and my three adorable younger siblings. If there is one thing you should know about me it is that music is my life. I am a pianist and a singer. Even my job is teaching music to children. There is something about music that speaks to the soul and I love it. I am an actor. being on stage, in my opinion, is one of the most enjoyable things in life. It has help me become more confident and loving of myself. I also love going on adventures. Camping, boating, hiking, you name it, I love doing it. I'm a bit of a adrenaline junkie which scares my parents a bit. I am also very clumsy which is a bad combination when mixed with thrill seeker... I am pleased to say that (surprisingly) I haven't broken anything yet! I like to say that I'm a cowgirl even though that's not necessarily true. I just have a deep and abiding love for horses, cowgirl boots, and getting dirty. So, in my opinion I have all the qualifications of being a cowgirl. Last but not least, I love this gospel. I am trying to be the best I can be, even though I often struggle, I keep trying. My goal is to go on a mission, come home, and marry my best friend in the temple, to be sealed for time and all eternity. I have a testimony and try my best to not be shy about sharing it. I know I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and a Savior who loves me enough to atone for my mistakes. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to the faith but as I've gotten older I have had to work for my faith. I have learned that my Father in Heaven loves me. I know and am constantly reminded of how much my Savior loves me. I have read the Book of Mormon four times now, and every time my testimony of that book grows stronger. I have received many answers to my prayers and have felt the guiding influence of the Holy Ghost in my life. I know that there are prophets in the latter days and that they testify of a Living Christ. I know that there is a plan for happiness in my life and all I have to do is follow it. I know that this gospel brings happiness to individuals and to families. I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love to serve. I try to do my best in all my callings and am constantly looking for new opportunities to help and uplift others. I have made it a goal to look for those who need a friend and be that for them. I have often been put in positions where it is my duty to seek out those who need help and find ways to get it to them. In those times I have learned that one of the best ways to serve is to be kind and not judge. Sometimes we all just need someone to see us as we really are, children of a loving Heavenly Father. There is a light in everyone and I believe it's worth loving.
