Hi I'm Emilie Berg

I am from Bergen, Norway. I love music, books, and hiking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Bergen, Norway, a city surrounded by beautiful mountains and fjords. I love hiking in the mountains, and riding my bicycle around Bergen. I love spending time with my family. I absolutely love music, playing the piano and singing with my family. I am currently serving as a missionary in the England Leeds Mission, and loving every minute of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have experienced that the teachings of Jesus Christ have helped me to find more peace and happiness in everyday life. I know that applying his teachings is what will help me to become the best version of myself. I love that as I go through hard times, I can take a step back and see that this life is so short, that there is so much more good to come, and that Heavenly Father loves me no matter what.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the opportunity to live in England and share my faith with the people I meet every day. I feel privileged to share these things with other people to help them come to see the blessings that come through strengthening our faith in Jesus Christ. I know that the little things we do each day have a massive impact on our lives. When I was about 15 years old, the group of youth in our stake received a challenge to read the Book of Mormon 1000 days in a row. It was called "a thousand days that will change your life". I did the challenge, and loved studying my scriptures. I continued to do it for the thousand days, but I didn't realize the difference it made to study the scriptures each day until the challenge was over. As I started to not read as regularly, I felt different, more negative and critical, but I didn't understand why at first. As I was thinking about why I felt different, I realized that I had stopped being as diligent with my scripture study. As I again started studying more regularly, my appreciation for the scriptures grew. I knew the power it had to influence me for good and guide me in my life. I know that the little effort we put in, coming to church, reading our scriptures and saying our prayers bless our lives more that we realise, and that these things are what will help our faith to grow day by day.
