Hi I'm Emma

I love to dream, to create, and to learn. I am creating my own major to teach creativity through the arts. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn. I have a passion for the fine and performing arts, but I adore studying language, history, math, science, politics, psychology, sociology, crafts and skills, you name it. But even though I love learning so much, I am pausing my college education and career to serve a mission for this wonderful church. I have a strong testimony, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I had to choose to be a Mormon on my own. This church has always given me the most happiness, no matter what I was going through in my life or what I needed at the time. I have felt the love of God so strongly every day, and I don't know what I would do without the sure knowledge that I have of that love. I am so grateful for everything that my Father in Heaven does for me, and I am so thankful for the atonement of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that without him I could never be free of the sins I commit in this life, nor could I receive life after death. I love my family more than life itself, and I am so thankful that I will be able to be with them forever. I am thankful that, when I get married, it can last for time and all eternity and not only 'til death. There is nothing I want more. I know this church is true, and I would never be anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day in the way I treat those around me and the way I follow my God. I love people, and my greatest goal in life is to make people happy. I do this by sharing my smiles, my hugs, my positive attitude, and my empathy with everyone I meet. I do my best to help people become the best that they can be, and I always strive to think the best of people. I am active in my church, and am currently serving as a missionary to help spread this wonderful gospel throughout the world (starting with the area of Santa Rosa, California) :) I have served in many leadership capacities with the youth in my ward and in my religion classes, as well as assisting with music in our sunday meetings. I follow the words of modern and ancient prophets in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and I always strive to serve those around me in whatever ways are needed.
