Hi I'm Emma Brinton

I am currently serving as a missionary in Oakland/San Francisco California. I believe in choosing to be happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I LOVE being outside, mountains, photography, reading, and eating!! I grew up as the oldest in 6 children in Midlothian, Virginia. I went to Utah State University in Logan, Utah for my freshman year of college. I am currently serving as a missionary in Oakland/San Francisco California and LOVE every second of it. My family means everything to me, but right now I am helping others to be happy as they find Jesus Christ, who is my ROCK & the reason I am who I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a very active Mormon family. At first, I relied on their testimonies and the testimonies of my church leaders. It wasn't until high school that I truly began to develop a testimony of my own. Since then I have been living and striving to develop my own testimony. My religion makes me happy and gives me hope. It helps me become a better person, to be kind and forgiving, overcome trials, grow, and see the bigger picture. This is all possible through Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. I have faith in Him and He helps me to be better and HAPPY :)

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I study study study so I can teach. I pray pray pray so I can have the Spirit and be led to those who are searching for the truth. I try my best to keep the commandments of God and strive to be better each day. I LOVE the people I serve here in California and do my best to do God's will. I think one of the most important ways I can live my faith is to be kind and happy.
