Hi I'm Emily

I'm a photographer and a missionary in the California Roseville Mission. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in the same city my entire life. Although I was raised in the city, I love adventuring in the outdoors. I love being in nature surrounded by Gods beautiful creations. I also love being so close to Washington D.C. It is such a culturally diverse environment so I get to meet people from all over the world. I am a portrait photographer and have run my own business for just about 2 years! I love discovering new things; artists, music, places, people, food, you name it! I love this gospel and all the many blessings it has brought into my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so incredibly grateful to have been born into this gospel! I used to think I won the “spiritual lottery” because most of the world doesn’t have the gospel. But I don’t think that anymore. I truly believe that we each have a specific role and purpose in life and being raised in the gospel is part of mine. Because of that, I feel that Heavenly Father trusts me to use this knowledge and do something with it! That’s why I am serving a mission. To serve, to teach and to brings others to Christ. I know that my Heavenly Fathers loves me, I know that when I pray to Him he hears me and will answer my prayers, all in His time. I have learned throughout the course of my life the importance of trusting in God and that he has a specific plan for me, even if I have a different plan for myself. Through Him I have learned that I cannot depend on my own luck and skills to get through this life. I must rely on God. That is the only way I can ever succeed, is through Him. I am grateful for the blessings of the temple and for the knowledge that families can be together forever. I know that is through the Saviors Atonement we can have peace and happiness and someday return to live with God.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary! For 18 months, I am representative of Jesus christ and invite others to come unto Him. I don't know what I would do without this Gospel. Although I am a full time missionary, I believe everyone can be a missionary by striving to be an example of Christ. We can do this be being kind and compassionate to others, serving with love and trying our best to keep the Commandments.
