Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Utah. I am of Greek heritage. I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I could go on and on about everything that I love to do. But i'll start with the coolest thing ever...I'm currently serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Portland Oregon!! What an eye opener it's been thus far and I'm loving every minute of it!! Anyways, before my mission I was on my high school swim team and water polo team. Along with the sports I was an active member of my high school choir and band. I've been swimming for most of my life and I enjoy every second of it. I love reading, being outside, working in the kitchen making yummy homemade food with my awesome Yia Yia (Greek for Grandma) I love writing poems and writing in my journal. I could proabably go on for a while. I love my family and I cherish every moment I have with them.

Why I am a Mormon

Every LDS child's answer to "Why I am a Mormon" is "Cause I grew up in the Gospel and it's what my parents teach me." That is true. But there is so much more to this question. Why I am a Mormon? Why am I a Mormon? Cause, of course, I grew up in this Gospel and I have come to know for myself that this Gospel is very true. Through hardships in my life I have overcome many walls that have entered my life. I don't like to think where I would be without this Gospel and the knowledge it brings to my life. So, I am a Mormon because being Mormon brings happiness to my life and to my family's life. I love everything that pertains to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I know that he died for my sins. I'm so blessed with the knowledge of when I die I can live with Him again. Having that brings such peace into my life.

How I live my faith

I served as the Young Women's Secretary for my ward. I loved having the calling and I learned so much from the girl's. I received my mission call to Portland Oregon and am super excited to go. By doing this I can show how much I love the Lord, this faith, and His church.
