Hi I'm Emily Garner

I'm a psychology major. I love to sing and dance, I served in the Wisconsin Milwaukee mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite activities to do are to sing and dance. I've taken dance classes my whole life, sing whenever I can, and have been in various choirs. I've finished one year at BYU-Idaho and just got back from serving a full time mission. It was the greatest experience of my life. I love this gospel so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so blessed to have been born into a family who were already Mormon. Since I was born into it, I had to pray and ask if the church was really true, in order to form and build my own testimony. I've also read through the Book of Mormon a few times, and prayed and asked about it. I know that Heavenly Father always answers our prayers, even if it's not in the time frame we had in mind. I know that this is the true church, which is why I've continued to follow the commandments and do the best I can. This is also why I'm so excited to serve an 18 month mission in Wisconsin and teach anyone who will listen. I love this gospel so much, know that it's a great way to live, and that it will always continue to bless my life in many ways. I'm so grateful for our Savior and everything he did for all of us. I can't wait to help people by teaching them about Christ and the plan our Father in Heaven has for us. It truly is a plan of happiness.

How I live my faith

When I was at college, I was in charge of one of the "family" home evening groups. It was fun and good for me to plan lessons, activities, and other things for our group. I love them and had a blast! I am now preparing to serve a mission in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area and am very excited. I love to help and serve others, and know that teaching people about the gospel will do just that. I try my hardest to live the commandments daily and come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ, in order to become more like our Father in Heaven. I also read my scriptures daily to learn from them and answer any questions I may have.
