Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Los Angeles California, currently serving in the Great Texas McAllen Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love the beach. I love art. Some day I'd like to become a photographer. I love music, and I love to dance; Bachata, Merengue, Cumbia, and Salsa. I am the oldest of 3.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a member of the Church, and I am thankful that my parents were converted before I was born. I've chosen to follow this gospel because I know it is true, every single one of the teachings. Sometimes it has not been easy to live according to the standards of the Church, because a lot of the times you stand out and you are different than others. I've learned through experience that it's a good thing to stand out. We, as members of the Church, can be an example for others. We just need to have the courage to stand up for what we believe in. I know that this gospel is true, and I know that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father live. I know that God's plan for us is perfect, and so is his gospel. I love the church, and I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving a mission in McAllen Texas, and I love serving others. I've learned to not only talk about Jesus Christ and share His teachings with other people, but I have learned to serve as He did. Previous to serving a mission, I have had the wonderful opportunity to serve as Primary Chorister.
