Hi I'm Emily Hansen

I'm a missionary in the SLC Temple Square Mission. My pure happiness in life comes from living the Gospel. I love laughter!

About Me

Hi! I'm Emily. I grew up in Southern California & my heart will always be there! I love the beach, it's my happy place. I have two older brothers who I love dearly, and amazing parents who raised me in the gospel. My mother is the best lady I know, I hope I can someday learn to be an amazing mother, just like she's always been to me. I love to laugh & hang out with friends. I go to BYU-Idaho & was studying Business before I came on a mission, I have NO idea what life has in store after this but I am grateful for the lessons I am learning during this 18 months of full time service to The Lord. I love the teachings of the church & am blessed to have always had them in my life. I know I am a happy person because I am a disciple of Christ. I live & love the Gospel & am proud to be a member of the church!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into the church. I always envied those who were converts because they always had amazing stories of how they came to know the truth. For me I always knew the teachings of the church felt right and true. I always loved attending church and learning more and more. I am so grateful for the teachings of this church. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach others about the gospel each day. I don't just believe this church is true, I am fully converted to it. I know there is power in the Book of Mormon, I have a firm knowledge that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and because of this he was able to restore this amazing gospel and give us the blessing of being part of it. I know because of the blessings of the gospel my family can be sealed for eternity and as I use the Atonement everyday I will be able to return and live with my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ again some day. I'm a Mormon... I know it... I live it... I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by continually trying to strengthen my testimony! I love being a missionary and having the opportunity to teach others about Christ and his gospel.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Emily Hansen
The purpose of being a missionary is to spread Christs gospel to all those who have an open heart and are willing to learn. Missionaries love getting to know people and are so friendly, that is why we go around spreading the gospel to all those who will listen! Show more Show less
