Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in southern California, I have a passion for music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young college student studying to be a professional violinist. I love hanging out with my friends and having fun! Recently, I decided to temporarily put my education on hold as I serve the Lord for 18 months on a full-time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and a Savior who has made it possible for me to have the hope of life after death. I know these things because I have studied the words of ancient and modern day prophets and asked in prayer if they are true. When I study these words, I get a sweet, peaceful feeling and when I pray to Heavenly Father, I get a feeling inside that my heart can hardly contain. I know that He is there listening to me and ready to answer when I need His help. I am never alone in this crazy world. That is what the Mormon church has brought to my life.

How I live my faith

Before becoming a missionary, I worked with the youth of the church. I helped plan and participate in many fun activities for the youth that brought them close to the community and taught them about their Savior.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Families are forever! I have recently had some deaths in my family that hit me really hard but because of the power of the priesthood which is available to us on this earth, I know that I will see my family members again. There is life after death! Show more Show less
