Hi I'm Emily Field

I am a born and raised Texan. I am a photographer. I am a daughter and a sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent high school graduate. I am a photographer and I love to capture life's most often missed moments. One of my favorite ways to spend the weekend is to make brownies and watch a Disney movie with my family. I love anything and everything to do with the medical field. One of my goals is to be a Nurse one day. I was a Pharmacy Technician intern at a local Walgreens for the past year. I am a middle child in a family of 7 and I have 1 niece and 1 nephew and I love spending time with them. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for the church in The Baltic Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

The short truth of why I am a Mormon is because I know with all of my being that this is the true church. I may have been raised in the church but being an active member was completely a choice of my own. As I have read the scriptures, listened to the Prophet's words and attended church the Spirit has quietly told me that these things are true and that the church is where I belong. I know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me so much. I know I existed before this life on earth. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, and that He truly did atone for our sins. I know that with repentance we can fully be forgiven of that which we have done wrong. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that in 1820 he prayed to Heavenly Father to know which church was true and Heavenly father answered none of them. I know that under Heavenly Father's instruction Joseph Smith restored the true church to the Earth; the same church that Christ set up while he was on the Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon truly is scripture and word of God. This church has been my anchor and has brought me lasting happiness that I can't find anywhere else. The reason I still follow His gospel is because I have grown to have a deep love for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday and I love it! All 4 years of high school I have attended early morning seminary and loved every minute. I strive to do my best to keep the commandments and be an example in all that I do. I start each day with a prayer and I end each day with a prayer and I say many more prayers throughout the day.
