Hi I'm Emily

I'm from Roseville, California. I'm 19. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a sophomore at Brigham Young University, however I am currently taking time off of school because in November of this year, I will be moving to Brazil for 18 months to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those I meet. My major is Elementary Education. I love working with kids, spent the summer working in a preschool, and am now a full time nanny. Within the past year, I've become a lover of hikes and the outdoors and being a little outside my comfort zone. I firmly believe in road-tripping as often as possible with people that you love. I love Disneyland. I love fruit. I love overly zoomed in, candid pictures of my best friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I used to be a Mormon because I was born into it, raised with my faith. Now, I am a Mormon because I know there is no other place which could make me as happy as I am now. Nothing has made me feel as loved, as hopeful, as joyful, as humble, as purposeful, as worthwhile, or as purely happy as being a Mormon has. I know that there is a power that has flowed into my life, and will flow into anyone's life, the moment I began to read and study and live by the Book of Mormon. I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves each and every one of us, despite our actions, without fail, and more than we will ever comprehend. I know that Christ is the Savior of the World. He is my Savior and he is your Savior. As we come unto him, we will find our purpose in life and be happier than we can be without Him.

How I live my faith

In the past year, I've developed a love for serving fellow women in my church. Whether it be organizing a Valentine's day activity, or dropping off dinner, or teaching a lesson on Sunday. Women can find strength in other women, and this definitely applies to our faith.
