Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Las Vegas,NV. I am a convert to the church. I love volleyball and anything artistic,especially baking. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old. I grew up in Las Vegas for about ten years then moved out of state for a couple of years. I played all four of my high school years playing volleyball and I graduated from Lincoln high school. Volleyball is a big part of my life, I coach two years of recreational volleyball and after graduation I coached the freshmen team for my high school. l loved every second of it! Then i was called a full-time missionary, I served in the South Carolina mission, August 2013 to February 2015 and I love being there and I love the people!!!! I loved being a missionary!!!!!!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ! I didn't grow up in the church but I had a mother who was also a convert at the age of 9 so she grew up with the same standards of the gospel. When I was baptized it was an easy transition for me to live the gospel standards because my mother had already instilled them in myself and my siblings. Some parts I admit we're really tough but I made the decision to become a member of the church at the age 12 and was at peace with that. My mom didn't force me, I chose it. I was baptized in June along with my brother and sister and were baptized by my uncle. That started with faith and has made my faith grow as well as my testimony in this gospel so much and now I have been called to serve a mission. And I am so happy that I get to share my experiences and knowledge with those I have the opportunity to teach. I feel honored to be able to serve my father in heaven.

How I live my faith

I get to be a missionary and get to teach people here in South Carolina, helping them grow closer to Christ. I love going around finding people that want to learn all about Christ ,not only do I teach,but i learn so much form it! I get to teach a lot of amazing people.
