Hi I'm Emily G

I am a singer, a crafter, and I am a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE to sing and listen to music. I am oppressed with reading and crafting. I love wearing jewelry especially when I've made it with my mom. I loved being in band while I was in high school. I don"t really like running, but I enjoy playing soccer. I am allergic to Corn and have worked with corn plants for 3ish years. I have short thumbs that make life difficult but I deal with it. I enjoy telling other that I am half of a middle child because I am 3rd of 4. I am the only girl. I almost never wear make-up or do anything fancy with my hair. Really, I'm just an ordinary girl. I have likes and dislikes. I have challenges and blessings. I have strengths and weaknesses. BUT I am also a Child of God. I have a knowledge and Testimony of Jesus Christ My (our) Savior. I am part of a great family that loves me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. I grew up believing it was true. I never doubted that I was a Child of a Heavenly Father who loved me. I always new the Book of Mormon was scripture. However my life has not been easy, and my testimony has been tested. When I was in middle I went through a really hard time, I felt completely alone. During that time I prayed harder then I ever have before. I learned how the Atonement works to give us comfort and strength. I learned that when Christ was in the garden he felt everything we would ever feel and he did it individually. When I was in high school I decided to really pray about the Book of Mormon. I believed it was true, but I wanted to know why. As I read I came across this scripture in 2nd Nephi 33:10, which says "And now, my beloved brethren, and also Jew, and all ye ends of the earth, hearken unto these words and believe in Christ; and if ye believe not in these words believe in Christ. And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ, and he hath given them unto me; and they teach all men that they should do good." This verse hit me with such strength. I believed in Christ, and I believed in the Book of Mormon because it is the words of Christ. I know this church is true. I know that God's love is REAL! I know the Book of Mormon is true and that Jesus is the Christ. I say these things in Jesus name, amen.

How I live my faith

I teach people the gospel in a variety of settings. I stand up for what I believe in and hold fast to the truths I know.
