Hi I'm Emilee

I grew up in Las Vegas and I'm currently a BYU student in Provo. I have been called to serve in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

About Me

My name is Emilee and I am 19 years old. I am the oldest of 4 children. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister who I adore. I have grown up and lived in Las Vegas my whole life until last Fall when I moved to Provo, Utah to continue my education at Brigham Young University. I grew up playing soccer, singing, dancing, and participating in student government. I love to run, take pictures, and hang out with family and friends. Last January I received my mission call to Albuquerque, New Mexico. I report to the Provo MTC on May 13 and I'm so excited to share the gospel with Heavenly Father's children there.

Why I am a Mormon

Life is better when you're in the boat. I have been blessed with a family who raised me in the church but I still had to be personally converted to this gospel and gain a testimony of my own. There have been times in my life where I wasn't as in tuned with His ways and I wasn't listening to the precautions and warnings He was giving me. Living life with out the gospel is hard. You might feel confused or very doubtful, maybe even alone. The gospel is not weight, it's wings. The gospel is true and creating a good relationship with our Heavenly Father and his son, our Savior, Jesus Christ leads to answers, peace, and true joy. Don't get me wrong, life is still challenging at times but it is so comforting to know that He can be and wants to be right by our side through every trial and hardship. Pray to Him and feel of His power and love for you. He will make it known to you to He lives and wants all of us to return to live with Him someday.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings growing up in the church but they have all led and prepared me to serve a mission. I have worked mainly with youth and other members of the church my age. I have a lot of experience with organizing and planning events. I enjoy reaching out to those around me and doing my best to help them in any way that I can. I love being a member of the church because there are always wholesome activities going on where you can engage with other members, strengthen your relationship with friends, meet new friends who you can connect with, and come closer to our Heavenly Father by feeling of His spirit and love for each one of us.
