Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Boise, Idaho. I am a mom. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom, wife, daughter, Aunt and sister. I love to read, scrapbook, sew, camp and research my family's history. The greatest job I have in this life is being a mom and a wife. Each day I love to wake up and know that I get to perform my duties as a mother and a wife. I learn and grow everyday from spending time with my children. The inspire me, encourage me and make me who I am. My family is the most important thing in my life. I went to school and received my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. My love of learning continues today with my children and all the books we read together.

Why I am a Mormon

Each morning I begin my day kneeling by my bed. I invite the Spirit to guide and direct me through out the day. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gives me strength. When trials and tribulations happen in my life I put my faith in the Lord and he helps me get through whatever I am being faced with. The church is focused on families and as stated above my family that I am raising with my husband is the most important calling I have been given. I love Family Home Evening on Monday nights and watching my children learn. I love reading the scriptures and having family prayer morning and night with my children. The Church of Jesus Christ gives me such happiness and guidelines to live by that I don't worry about what kind of world we live in. I know that if I follow the counsel that has been given in The Bible and The Book of Mormon (Another Testament of Jesus Christ), that I can return to live with him someday. I am not perfect and never will be but each day I wake up with a renewed spirit to live better and be better. That is what life is about...to be the best you. When I make a mistake I repent and move on. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ is true and I have a firm testimony that a young man at 14 years of age named Joseph Smith was visited in The Grove and was visited by Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and was told to restore the gospel to this earth. I know that we have a living prophet today that guides and directs us. I know that Families can Be Forever.

How I live my faith

I am on a committee at church that helps families learn how to put together 72 hour packs and begin getting a one month food storage in their home and then eventually work up to year supply of food in their home. I love helping people and seeing them happy. I have three ladies I visit once a month and give them a special message that uplifts them and helps them in their life. I am a girl scout leader for two of my daughters troops, I serve on the PTO at our elementary school and I am a board member of my metro district where I live.
