Hi I'm Emily Rhead

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I love nature and the outdoors. I love Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints serving in Michigan. I was previously a college student back home in Utah. My hobbies include photography, reading, painting, hiking, and biking. I love to visit new places, or travel to old ones. My favorite places that I have been are Seattle, Washington and Jacksonville, Florida. I hope to travel all over the world some day and meet new people and experience their culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to faithful parents. I have grown up going to church and gaining a testimony of its teachings. When I was eleven years old, my father passed away to cancer. It is the hardest thing that I have ever gone through. I know though that I can see him again if I keep my faith and live a worthy life by keeping the commandments. As life went on for me I faced other challenges, but I knew that the Savior's atonement could help me through them. I am a Mormon because I took the steps to know if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was true, and it definitely is. This gospel brings so much comfort and direction, and can help us deal with challenges in life. I am a Mormon because I want Eternal happiness, and that is what this church brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always going to my Heavenly Father in prayer, and trusting that he will give me answers and guide my life. I am currently a primary teacher at church for the six year olds. I have loved listening to the children sing primary songs, and share their feelings about Jesus Christ and the church with each other. When life gets hard, I always try to remember that there is a purpose in all things, and I can always rely on the Savior's atonement to get me through trials. I love this church and its teaching so much that I want to share it with others on a LDS mission. I have just been called to serve in the Michigan Lansing mission.
