Hi I'm Emily

I was born in England, immigrated to Australia when I was 10 and I'm a Mormon :-)

About Me

I'm a mother of three, step mother of six and grandma to five. I am a primary school teacher, currently working three days a week in a coastal school's library. I love chocolate. I enjoy swimming in the summer and sunbathing. I'm getting more lazy as the years pass by.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to this church seven years ago. I had been a practicing catholic until the end of high school. I like to think I had religious values ingrained in me and always believed in God and heaven. After my divorce, I felt I was missing something in my life and tried to return to our Catholic Church. The 'something' was still missing. I was introduced to our local Mormon church, where on my first visit I felt an overwhelming sense of joy,peace and belonging. I know that this feeling was the spirit touching me and helping me understand I was in the right place. Each week I attended church I learnt more and more about the bible and the Book of Mormon. I grew spiritually and saw my children change too. They enjoyed being there and left the worldly trends outside to understand a better, cleaner and healthier way to live our lives. The church has the fundamental belief that the family is central to heavenly fathers plan. I know this to be true and pray that our family will be together forever.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to church every week. I love learning from the scriptures. Since converting to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have learnt more about my Christian religion than I ever did throughout my life. My family reads from the bible everyday, a little at a time. We have family prayers to be grateful for what we have, to bless our food and to keep us safe on our travels. Each week we try and do something fun together, so we can remember the importance of being part of a loving family.
