Hi I'm Emily

I'm from Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being with my family and friends. Whether it be going on a walk, watching a movie, hiking, eating, laughing - simply being with them is what I love doing. On top of that, I enjoy playing the piano, being outdoors, playing frisbee, baking, and scrapbooking. I just finished my semester at college and I am currently preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been a member of this church my whole life and it has been the most important part of who I am and what I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church and to serve a mission because I know with all my heart that it is truth. I know that because of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ as my Savior and Redeemer. Since I know that my Savior lives, I also know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Since I know that, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and restored the Church on the earth today. Since I know that, I know that Joseph Smith did in reality see God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Everything all connects. I love the person that I am as a member of the Church. It brings so much peace, joy, and love into my life and I can't wait to go out and share this message as a missionary!

How I live my faith

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings so much happiness into my life and gives a sense of hope when trials and adversity are going on all over in the world. This is because as a member of the church, there are so many opportunities to serve not only in the church, but in the community. Doing service is the thing in life that brings me the most happiness because it brings me closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ.
