Hi I'm Emilee

I'm from New Mexico. I love making people laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently preparing to leave my family for 18 months to serve the Lord as a full-time missionary. I have been called to the Mexico Mexico City West Mission and I couldn't be more excited to start serving and teaching the people of Mexico. I just finished up my first year of college and I loved it! I love learning and college has been such an awesome experience so far. My hobbies including reading (a lot!), doing outdoor activities such as hiking or camping, spending time with family and friends, and photography. I want to someday travel the world and see everything that there is to see. I have a passion for helping others, and I plan on using that to help serve those who need it throughout my life. I am planning on majoring in Sociology and going into International Social Work, so that I truly can make a difference in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church, but I have made the personal decision to follow it's teachings because I have gained a testimony of the truth of it. I have prayed to my Heavenly Father to know for myself, and I have received a witness many times that this is the true church. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is the most amazing book. It truly can help with any problem and make any day better, just by reading a few verses. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that we have a living prophet on the earth today who leads and guides us according the the will of the Lord. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. I know that if we will only come unto Him, that he will lift us up, and help to shape us into something greater than we could ever imagine. I know that we can be fully clean through His Atonement, and that Jesus Christ is the only way back to our Heavenly Father. I know that Heavenly Father knows and cares about each of us personally. He loves us so much because we are His children. He wants us to return to live with Him again, and by following the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we can obtain that goal.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ in everything that I do. I strive to be kind, generous, and loving towards all that I meet, and I look for any opportunities to serve others. I live my faith by trusting in the Lord and striving to do all that He asks of me, including serving a full-time mission in a foreign country, while speaking a strange language.
