Hi I'm Emily Robison

I grew up in Massachusetts, Beijing, China, and Tokyo, Japan. I love to sing. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving music. I love to sing, it's one of the ways I like to share my testimony with others. I also love to be outdoors and go on adventures. I am currently attending Brigham Young University, and I plan on majoring in Nursing! I love to help others, to give back!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I bore my testimony any chance I got. Every fast Sunday, when people could go up and share their testimony, you would see me up at the pulpit telling the entire congregation how much I love Jesus Christ. That was when I was younger. Now my testimony is a much more quiet, humble feeling that I have inside me. A reassuring feeling that I carry with me wherever I go. Nonetheless, I still have the same testimony I had when I was younger; I love Jesus Christ. There is no formula to obtaining a testimony, or how to keep it, or even how to know you have one. A testimony is a very personal declaration for ones feelings towards the gospel. No testimony is the same, just as no person is the same. We all go through different experiences that shape us and our testimonies along the way. For myself, my testimony has always been founded on love. I’ve always known my Heavenly Father loves and knows me personally. I can feel the warmth and light he brings to my life through my family, friends, and even strangers who smile at me on a bad day. Through that, I have been able to figure out for myself that I know the gospel is true, and that Jesus Christ is our savior. A testimony isn’t about being able to know every single thing about the church, being a scripture master, or even following every single guideline the church gives us. Children have some of the strongest testimonies in the church, bwut they know far less about doctrine than, say, the bishop. Yet they can feel the love of Christ and have faith that He is our Savior. A testimony is about YOU. What YOU believe, what YOU know to be true, and how YOU feel. If you have even the slightest glimmer of belief that the Jesus Christ is the Savior, that is your testimony. Keep it, hold it close, don’t let it go. It’s yours.

How I live my faith

I am very active in my Church. I am a counselor for the group of women in our Church, so I help guide and serve them with whatever they may need. I used to be a teacher for children, and that was such an amazing thing to do! I love being able to share my testimony with others!
