Hi I'm Emily Carr Rogers

I'm a future full time missionary! I love my family and friends! I love dancing, quotes and the rain! I love being a Mormon!

About Me

Even after being born and raised in Utah, the sight of the mountains still blows me away. I am in the middle of 3 girls so I have a sister on each side! My mom, sisters and I make up a fearsome, righteous foursome and enjoy Pride and Prejudice movie marathons often. I'm constantly twirling around the kitchen and leaping down the halls because I love dancing. I'm a total ballerina! I consider myself a decent baker but a nervous cook. Nervous but willing to keep trying! Hopefully after 18 months as a missionary in New York I'll learn cook like a pro. I am thrilled to be a missionary of the Lord! Teaching what I love and believe in all day, everyday is incredible! Even though I miss my family and friends, I know that they are being taken care of while I'm away. A quote I love goes like this; "A missionary leaves her family for 18 months so that others can be with their families for eternity." :)

Why I am a Mormon

My mom raised me in the Gospel and helped me build my foundation of faith that has blessed me all throughout my life. As I've gotten older I have been able to see the joy of the Church for myself. Through reading the Book of Mormon and praying to Heavenly Father to know if this really is the true church I have been able to receive my own confirmation. Then while going through life's ups and downs, I have seen miracles that I know could only come from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that each and every one of us is known and loved by our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ and we can see that love in the simple miracles and beauty in our everyday lives.

How I live my faith

To answer simply, I try and live in a way that would make my Heavenly Father proud and happy. I am no where near perfect but I try my best to act like Christ did when He was living on Earth. Seeing the good in people and treating them with pure love and kindness is a big one that I really focus on. As a full-time missionary I get to fully focus on serving the Lord and bringing the joy of the gospel to the people in New York. One of my favorite quotes is "Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says 'Oh crap, she's up!'"
