Hi I'm Emily

I was born and raised in Idaho, I am going to school to become an English teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been attending Brigham Young University for almost a year now. My dream is to be a literature teacher. I have passion for books, the San Francisco Giants, the Utah Jazz, and my two nephews that I love dearly!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God has answered my prayers. I have prayed to know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called of God, and I have prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true. I received the answer that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that Joseph Smith is a prophet. I did not have a vision and God did not speak to me directly, but I did feel peace and contentment with being a Mormon. I still feel at peace as I have loved ones pass away. I know that I will see them again. It is the Mormon church that fills me with hope.

How I live my faith

I have been playing the piano for 12 years, and now I play the piano and organ at my church. I love how music invites the spirit. Playing hymns makes me feel at peace especially since my college schedule is so hectic and busy.
