Hi I'm Emily Slatter

I'm 21 years old, from Ontario, and I was baptized in October of 2015.

About Me

I danced competitively for 8 years and non competitively for 3. I stopped dancing at 14 to play ball hockey and then eventually ice hockey. I spend a lot of my summers up north with my family, going fishing, and atving. I love hiking, dogs, cooking, and writing!! I was diagnosed with depression when I was 15 and it was really tough for a long time, but ever since I started going to church I've been able to get the help I needed, and I am so grateful for that!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the truthfulness of this Gospel! There have been so many times in my life where things were just too good to be a coincidence, it had to be God. If this Gospel wasn't true I wouldn't have experienced the amount of happiness I have felt. If God wasn't real I probably wouldn't be here. I've gone through things where I thought "I am not strong enough for this, I can't do it, I'm ready to give up" but the Lord provides a way and provides the strength that I need to over come every trial I face. The spirit has testified to me so many times that this is Christ's church on the earth today and that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that the Lord is there! You can come to know that for yourself too.

How I live my faith

"Walk by faith not by sight." Trusting in the Lord and obeying His commandments is key! I feel closer to my Father in Heaven when I am doing the things he asks of me such as reading my scriptures, praying, going to church, and serving others.
