Hi I'm EmiLee Simons

I grew up in small town Idaho. I love my family and reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest child of 4 in my family; but only by 3 minutes older than my twin brother! I played basketball for my tiny high school in Idaho. I have studied for 3 semesters at college in Business and English. I grew up on a farm/ ranch and riding horses and tractors are a favorite past time. I love playing the piano, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me joy and peace, something sadly lacking in the world. I am a member of the church because I am uplifted by the teachings and knowledge that comes from it. I am a Mormon because I know the teaching about forever families, Jesus Christ's Atonement, and love from Heavenly Father are real. I have been a member my whole life; but once I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, I gained my own personal testimony about the truthfulness of the gospel, the Book of Mormon, prophets, and eternal families.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending Sunday services, visit teaching other members of the ward, and playing the piano in church meetings and in my home. I have been called to serve a full time mission in Brazil which is another way I live my faith.
