Hi I'm Emily

It's nice to know I'm related to Mark Twain, but AWESOME to know I'm a Daughter of a Heavenly Father & that he loves me!

About Me

I am a wife and Mother. I have three boys. I believe it is my job to give them the best life I can! I love to write and research my family history. It is exciting to know that I am related to Mark Twain or Samuel Clemens the Author, through my grandmother Helen Violet Clemens, but it does not bring the joy I feel when I know that I am a Daughter of a Heavenly Father and that he loves me! My relationship with him is very important, as he gives me the added strength I need in todays world.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school and through out my life, or when ever I got into a tough situation, I found my self always wishing I had that big brother that all my friends had. Then, I realized I did!! His name is Jesus Christ and, he has already performed the ultimate rescue possible. Because he has done this, I know that I can do the rest. I can take my place and just do my best! I belong to the only true church of Jesus Christ today. This church helps me best prepare to feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost, so I can receive the special messages that God has for me. I know that he gave me my family so that I would have extra help getting back to him some day. Like crossing the finish line by myself, I know that I would be incomplete without every family member. This is why I am glad to know that Families can be together forever. When sealed to my family members for all time and for eternity, I know that they will cross that finish line with me. This is why it is my responsibility to share the gospel with everyone. God has made a way for all of his children to hear his message. I know that his promises are based on obedience, but that we all have our free agency. We have the ability to choose life when we look for Christ's light. I know that there are no second class citizens in Heaven, he died for each one of us and would have still, even if, we were the only one he was to atone for. I know that with God, all things are possible! He loves us no matter what! Best Wishes to you!

How I live my faith

I like to share the gospel by being a good example and serving others, but it is the best when I can tell somebody how they remind me of the Savior Jesus Christ when I see them doing what I know is right. I believe that good examples are the best way to promote and advance his cause. One day I was trying to park my car when somebody came over and told me just how much space I had left. It made it easier for me to park. So, I took the time to tell them about the story of the good samaritan. I said God needs good people to make his team strong! Then I offered a copy of my favorite religious book, The Book of Mormon. I said they could read more about God and his son Jesus Christ, if they would like to take it. They said yes! Things that are praiseworthy remind me of my favorite article of faith; We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul~ We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
