Hi I'm Emily Wirick

I am a college student. I'm a pianist. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Music is a huge part of my life. I play piano and sing as well as teach a great group of kids to play the piano. I grew up all over the United States! I am studying music education at college and love to spend time with family and friends. I enjoy the outdoors, as well as soccer, tennis, and swimming. I am currently a missionary serving in the Oregon Salem Mission and I could not be happier sharing this gospel with people every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who were already members of this church. I was raised to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ and I know that doing this brings us closer to Him and eventually helps us to be able to return to Him. As I have grown older and gained some knowledge and experience of my own, I know that the things taught in this church are true and that if we follow them we will have more joy and peace in our lives than we could even imagine. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. I know that through faith, repentance, baptism by immersion, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end that we can return to our Heavenly Father and gain Eternal Life, bringing us happiness and blessings forever. This church not only will have a positive impact on our lives on earth, but also the life to come.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a full-time missionary, teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Oregon! Because I know how much the gospel blesses my life, I want to share my beliefs with others so they can experience those blessings as well. Every day, as a representative of Jesus Christ, I work sunrise to sunset to bring the world His truth!
