Hi I'm Emily Beukers

I love adventure, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well hey there. I'm your everyday average track-running, ice cream-eating, theatre-loving, nineteen year old girl. I'm going to college and plan on majoring in Accounting. My goals in life include starting a charity, traveling across the globe, and finding the world's best lemonade.

Why I am a Mormon

What I have learned from this Church is everything to me. It is what helps me through every hard time and every bad day. I am so grateful that I have had the chance to grow up in this Church. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I love reading it. I love the stories and heroes that it tells about and I love what it teaches me about Jesus Christ. For the past two years I have read my scriptures every single day and it's gotten to the point where I can't fall asleep at night if I know I haven't read. I just need the peace that the Holy Ghost brings to me from reading a page or two. I love this gospel with every part of me, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Dominican Republic. This is the opportunity of a lifetime and something that I am so excited to do. I have seen in my friends and family the way that this gospel can change somebody for the better and I want to share that with others. I want to give people the opportunity to turn the lives around and find happiness by sharing what I know about my Savior Jesus Christ.
