Hi I'm Emily Atwood

I am a fun-loving, adventure-seeking, salsa-eating, aspiring webdesigner, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Utah girl born and raised and am currently a 20 year old sophomore at BYU in the IT program. I am a sister to three and owner of the fattest dog you've ever seen. I love bowling, swimming, dancing, rock climbing and trying new things so really I am down for anything FUN.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides hope, peace, and direction in my life. Being a member of the church has provided so much comfort and guidance to me that I would be completely lost without that direction. I seek out happiness and I am never happier than when I am following the example of Jesus Christ. I know that he lives and that this church is the true restoration of his gospel on earth, and I could never say otherwise!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the small and simple things each day such as reading my scriptures, praying, attending church meetings and activities, and serving in my ward to help me to improve myself on a daily basis. I have made it a personal goal to attend the temple each week and have gone to almost all the temples in Utah. Doing these simple things help me become closer to my Heavenly Father.
