Hi I'm Emily

I'm an artist. I love that Thai mango and rice dessert. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an appreciator of the little things in life. I love dogs, rain, paint, books, and my beta fish. The smell of the ocean is incredible. The taste of a new food you've never tried is astonishing. All these little dumb things we don't normally focus on are the make up of our best memories. There are so many things I am looking forward to; school, work, my own family, new places, new foods, new people. I want to experience all that this world has to offer. We've been blessed with a whole world of beauty and I want to see it all! Art is something I feel binds us together, no matter how different we all are

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that this church is true. Though I was raised in this faith, I came to a point in my teenaged years that I needed to figure out for myself whether everything I was being taught was true or not. And it was hard at first. I was confused and had so many questions. But if you try and humble your stubborn heart and let the atonement work it's magic, you can come to know and love your Savior. He is the only constant and peaceful influence in my life. I am so grateful for the example He was to me and for His choice to suffer the Atonement for ME. I feel so small and insignificant in the world. But when I look at myself as the Savior would see me, I know I have worth and I know that I was meant for something greater. That's the best thing about the gospel. We are ALL important.

How I live my faith

Little by little. You just have to try a little harder every day and know that you will never be completely perfect, but you can always do a little better than before. I attend church every Sunday. Some weeks are harder than others to go, but you just do it! No matter how you felt before church, you always come out with a better attitude and appreciation. I attend the singles ward for young adults in college and I go to the activities they provide and try to do my best in whatever calling I receive.
