Hi I'm Emily Crow

I grew up between families. I love reading. I have an angel mother and Im a mormon.

About Me

I am 20 yars old.I was born in California, my parents divorced when I was just 3 years old and my sister was a little baby. One of my parents was an active member of the church and the other was not. I grew up between homes. When I was 8 years old my father married a woman who (is now my personal hero) had 4 boys two younger than I and two older. I instantly had 4 brothers. We also went to live with my Dad when I was 8. So here I was in a house with 4 boys and a step-mother who I had only had brief interactions with before, as time passed we grew close and they became my "brothers" and the only steps were the ones that took us to a different level of the house. When I was in my early teens my mother remarried and had a little girl, I love them! When I was 15 one morning I woke up to find out that my mother, my little sister and the boy she was pregnant with were all killed in a car accident. My world caved in I had to rely on my Savior the whole time. Many people want to talk after a tragedy but I DID NOT! God has a plan for all of us. Heavenly Father knew that I was not ready to be without a mother and but he also knew that through someone elses actions my mother would be taken away from me. He had given me a mother (my step-mother) to lead and guide me she is my hero Im so glad God has loved me enough to not only give me this wonderful woman but to send his son Jesus Christ to come to earth and atone for my sins and give me someone who knew exactly what I was going through.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I saw the difference between my parent who lived their faith and the one who did not. I have prayed and studied hard to know if the Book of Mormon was really the word of God and have received my answer. I know that we can be with our families forever through this restored gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is the head of his only true church and that is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know it is true, God has told me.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a mission In New Jersey (NJMM) to share with the world the plan of salvation God has for us so they will know that they could see their loved ones again. The Family is ordained of God I know that to be true because we are all his children and he wants us to have Etearnal families.
