Hi I'm Emily Golightly

Hi, I’m Emily Golightly. I enjoy reading, playing the piano, and learning new things. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Utah, and I am the oldest of four girls. My family is one of the greatest blessings in my life, and I have learned so much from them! I love to read, and I have been reading almost since I could talk. I love books like Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, and Wonder by R.J. Palaccio. I play the piano, and I love it! I have been playing the piano since I was eight years old, and it has been a huge part of my life. I am an open major student at Brigham Young University, which has been an amazing experience! I am also preparing to go on an eighteen-month mission in Arizona to share my beliefs with others. I am super excited for that opportunity!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life, and from an early age my parents taught me the importance of making good decisions and following Jesus Christ. They taught me to pray and ask God for myself if our church is true, and I have learned through many experiences that it is! I have received so many amazing blessings from my Heavenly Father that could not have happened if God was not real and this church was not true. I love the feeling of peace and joy that comes from being in this church, and I am a better person because of it.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite ways to share the gospel is through music. I play the piano in our weekly church meetings, and I love how much happiness good music can bring to each of us. I am also a firm believer in being kind to everyone I meet. Even though I am not the most outgoing person, I always try to share a little happiness and goodness with those around me.
