Hi I'm Emily

I grew up around the world. I will be serving a mission in Japan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read books, movies can never compare to them. Unfortunately, I am not so good at sports and will almost every time land on my bum when I try. I go to college and share an apartment with four amazing women. I love the beach with a passion and can never get enough of it. I have just been called to serve a full time mission in Japan and am excited beyond words to share the knowledge and truthfulness of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that even if you've been born in the church there is a time in your life that you have been converted. For me it was when I wanted to know if the church was true. I truly wanted to know for myself if everything that I was ever taught was true. I started going back to church, that's when I started to feel something. I started to pray and slowly I began to read the Book of Mormon. I then had the desire to attend seminary. While in seminary I started praying about the Book of Mormon. I asked Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true. I didn't receive my answer immediately but only as I kept reading. The feels I received were so strong that I knew without a doubt that what I was reading was true, and that if it was true Joseph Smith was a prophet. From there my testimony has grown and been a blessing to my life. The power of prayer is incredible, I promise that as you pray to God with a sincere heart your prayers will be answered. "If any of you lack of wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not" James 1:5

How I live my faith

I try to be the person that Heavenly Father would be proud of. Sometimes I will slip up but that's the great thing about the gospel, repentance is there to help us find our way back to the right path. I find that when I apply my faith to my every day life things seem to go easier and my life feels full. I also find that as I help other people I feel like the person I'm truly meant to me. Charity is an amazing thing and blesses my life so much. I try to live my life in a way that can be an example to others.
