Hi I'm Emily Schwartz

I grew up in a town outside of Seattle, Washington. I am the youngest of four kids. I love laughing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Emily Schwartz and I am 19 years old. I grew up in a small town called Snohomish, Washington which I absolutely loved. I love rain and clouds. Growing up I danced and played softball. I danced competitively my last three years of high school. I'm also the youngest of four siblings and I have the best family in the world. They mean everything to me. I also love baseball and traveling with my family. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho and am majoring in communications with an emphasis in visual communications. I want to be a photographer and a mom! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ so much and I have dedicated my life to following the Savior because that has brought me the most happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the truths taught here are the real. I feel the spirit whenever I pray and read my scriptures and I can feel Heavenly Father love for me. This gospel has brought me more happiness in my 19 years of life then I ever expected. I know in my heart this is the true gospel. It has carried me through the lowest lows of my life and has brought my happiest moments as well. It gives me a reason to live. I love this gospel and I hope to bring this knowledge to others! This is Christ's church and He is the head of the church. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion and it the key to true happiness and true conversion.

How I live my faith

I love this gospel so much!! Knowing that I have a loving Heavenly Father and my brother Jesus Christ has given me a string foundation for how I want to live my life. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and He knows me perfectly. I know that Joseph Smith was a chosen prophet of God called to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ on the Earth. I know that Heavenly Father answers prayers. I know that temples are the literal House of the Lord. I know that this is the true church on Jesus Christ and through Hum, we can know pure happiness.
