Hi I'm Emily

I live in Southern California. I've swam my whole life, now I'm a lifeguard. I'm preparing for life as a full time missionary.

About Me

I'm a 19 year old girl living the gospel of Jesus Christ, the best I know how. I've been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ for my whole life. That doesn't mean it's been easy, but the journey has definitely been worth it thus far. I always keep an eternal perspective, even when I have hard times. I'm preparing to serve as a full time missionary in South America in the Spanish language. I'm preparing by working my job as a lifeguard to save up, practicing my Spanish, and going out with current full time missionaries to teach and bring others unto Christ. Some of my hobbies are swimming, singing, going out with friends and co workers, and playing basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true, I have no doubt in my mind. I know that the word of God is passed on through our prophets of today. I know that they are the mouth piece of the Lord and that the counsel that they give us is what Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would have us do. I am a mormon because the gospel brings me so much joy and I love sharing that joy with others. I am a mormon because I can have eternity with my family and friends and I love to keep the eternal perspective. I know that time is a worldly thing and that our time on earth is not even the half of it. I also just love the love joy and peace that having Christ in my life brings. I know the The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the true gospel of today. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and I love everyone because we are all of children of God and he would want us to love each other. That's why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and taking the sacrament, also listening and learning from the lessons being taught each week. I am as Christlike as I can by showing love and compassion towards others by being a friend to all. I am currently a ward missionary while I prepare to serve as a full time missionary at the end of this summer. I love to volunteer and help anyone that I can. I give freely and be as humble as possible. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm not afraid to be a representative of Christ.
