Hi I'm Emmitt Skog

Born and raised in rural Midwest USA. Grew up in Nauvoo, IL, and always been LDS. I come from a family of seven.

About Me

A little about me is i'm a gear head. Which means I love cars and trucks, but I also love sports. The Saint Louis Cardinals, and the Miami Heat are my teams. I plan on serving in the Air Force and being a mechanic. I like to serve people, so that is why I want to be in the military. I never liked school. Never took it seriously, I always participated in FFA events for my AG class. Shop and P.E. class were the only classes I enjoyed. So this is were my love for sports and cars come from. I help out with every car show around, and enjoy working on peoples cars for better performance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in all of the teachings the church abides by. I am a Mormon because when I step into those church doors I feel safe and protected. My worries about stuff happening in the world, in the school, or even in my personal life are dissolved. I enjoy being a Mormon. Many of my friends accept the fact that I don't do the things that they do. I am a Mormon because I believe, I know that this is where i'm supposed to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the fullest. I love the blessings I have been blessed with because of my faith to the church. I was in Boy Scouts which we did a lot of service for other people and the small town I came from. Our church participates in many service projects throughout the world, and my faith has been strengthen a lot by helping out other people.
