Hi I'm Emmalee

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was born and raised in Utah.

About Me

I am a college student majoring in Elementary Education. I love to spend time with my friends and family. In the winter that involves snowboarding, watching movies, and playing card/board games together. In the summer we camp, swim, and fish. I also like to sew and do anything creative. Currently I am serving an LDS mission in Oklahoma. I teach and share messages with the people here about how we have a loving Heavenly Father, that He has blessed us with a plan to return to live with Him again, and how we can do so.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has brought countless blessings into my life. When I keep covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father I know that He blesses my life. I feel at peace when I am choosing to keep the commandments of the Lord. When I was a senior in high school I decided to complete my Personal Progress and earn my young womens medallion. This helped me to learn more about the gospel and the ways it applies to my life. I know that if we as sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father choose to keep his commandments He will bless our lives more than we could ever imagine. I hope that as you study the gospel you will know that to be true as well.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I live. In everything I do I try to emulate our Savior Jesus Christ. I am not perfect at this, but I know that as I use the Saviors atonement and try to be better each day that I can make improvements and come to be more like Him. I have been a member of the church my whole life. Often it can be difficult to realize how I can help others come to the knowledge that I have grown up with, but I have learned that it really is the little things that help people understand more about your faith in Jesus Christ. Inviting people to learn or participate in church activities can help them understand more about our faith and how we live it!
