Hi I'm Emma

I am a small town country girl with big dreams. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in one of the best small towns in Washington State. I loved being apart of such a tight knit community full of great family and friends. While, I am currently studying at BYU, I look forward to each and every moment I get to spend at home. When I'm not busy with school work, I love reading, watching movies, and playing music. However, being outdoors is the love of my life. Whether I'm hunting, fishing, hiking, or just riding my bike, being outdoors makes me the happiest.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon church, but that doesn't mean I automatically had a testimony and was converted to the gospel. Like many others, I have struggled my way through life and all of the challenges that have come with it. It is by small and simple everyday feelings, experiences, and lessons that I have come to understand the Gospel and know that it is true. In the church I have learned about reading the scriptures, praying, and having faith and it is through these small everyday little things that I have found happiness and protection. I guess in the end, I am a Mormon because it is within the walls of His church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, that I find the love, guidance, hope, and charity of a people that truly know Christ and want to share it.

How I live my faith

My favorite day of the week is Sunday. I get to go to church with so many wonderful people that believe the same things I do and live the same way. It is such a great opportunity to be a part of such a loving and generous church. In my ward, I serve as a ward missionary. I have the opportunity to go and teach others, spend time with the missionaries, and help spread the message of the gospel. I am also living my faith by preparing to serve a full time mission in Denver Colorado. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn and grow through sharing the gospel to others.
