Hi I'm Emily

I'm serving a mission in Orem Utah. I sing! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE babies and dogs! My ward nicknamed me the "baby-whisperer" because I'm always holding someone's baby and I'm a pro at getting them to sleep. I'm always singing, and music is my life. I met the church music writer, Sally Deford, and had the opportunity to sing one of her songs for her...I think she liked it!! ;) I'm going to college for Music Therapy, but I'm taking a year and a half off to serve a mission in Orem Utah!

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel. I have been through trials and times in my life that felt at certain points to have no way out. I definitely made mistakes and wasn't perfect, but know the only way I was able to come out of that darkness and become a better person was through the atonement, and the fact that Jesus Christ knows exactly what we are feeling. No matter what we do he is always ready to help us. I know that forgiveness is real and possible, no matter what. I believe that the Book of Mormon is another true testament of Jesus Christ. I know that we are all unfathomably loved children of our Heavenly Father, and that through this gospel we can live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I had the opportunity to teach our 4 year olds in church for a few months and loved every minute of it! I also enjoy spending time with the mothers of young children and babies in my ward, and I babysit for them any chance I get! I occasionally sing solos and duets in sacrament meetings, and I love bringing the spirit through music!
