Hi I'm Emily

I am a small town Idaho chick who moved to Missouri. I am a future missionary who loves family and life. I am a mormon.

About Me

I love music! I am the kind of person who always playing music, singing, or has music running in their brain. . One of my favorite quotes are "Teeth are ALWAYS in style." I love seeing people with genuine smiles on their beautiful faces. I love making people smile and I will go to extreme measures to get a real smile out of someone. My two absolute favorite books are The Phantom Tollbooth and The Book of Mormon. The first is a kids book that shows a transformation of a sad, lonely, bored child, who didn't know where to turn in life, who changes into a happy, positive, joyful soul. There are so many similarities between myself and this boy. What changed me into having the desire of being happy was my absolute and favorite book, The Book of Mormon. If you haven't read it. Read it! I love spending time with my family as well as being surrounded by my little nieces and nephews! Any day is perfect if I get to spend time with the fam. I love the color blue! It is calm but exciting all at the same time. I am a country girl who moved to a big city when I was 15. It was one of the biggest changes I have had in my life but one of the best as well. It has been a definite growing experience! I am currently planning on going on a mission to serve The Lord for 18 months and I am stoked! I will meet many different people who I will be able to learn and grow from. Most importantly I will have the opportunity to bring others closer to their Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or being a Mormon. But it was my decision to become a member. When I was 8 years old I had the opportunity to be baptized into the gospel of Jesus Christ. I chose to be baptized because this gospel made me feel true and pure happiness. I have read The Book of Mormon and am continually reading it because I know without a doubt that it is true. The Book of Mormon is so amazing because it is meant for our day to help us learn, grow, and to gain a stronger relationship with our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. I know that The Bible and The Book of Mormon go hand in hand with each other and make the knowledge that we have about Jesus Christ that much more true. They are both witnesses of our Savior Jesus Christ. Two witnesses are better than one. Being able to have the Holy Ghost constantly with me and being able to feel our Heavenly Father's love that He has for me is so important to me. I know that anyone can pray to Heavenly Father and He will hear and answer your prayers. He loves each and everyone of us and wants us to be able to return and live with Him again. You are NEVER alone. He is there for you always to help and guide you through your life. I know that is true with all my heart because I have felt His love and have had my prayers answered. I know that families can be together forever and that you will have the opportunity to see those loved ones who have passed on again. The gospel of Jesus Christ is true and I love it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith enthusiastically! Everyday is a challenge to make it better than yesterday. It is always important to show your faith, who you are, by your actions. It would be really hard to truly live my faith if I didn't show through actions what I believe. My goal everyday is to do at least one act of service for either my family or a perfect stranger. In less than a month I will be serving The Lord 24/7 for 18 months. So excited!
