Hi I'm Emily Hafener

I attend school at BYU-Idaho. I am serving a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California and I grew up in North Carolina. I am the oldest of six siblings. I am studying social work at BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the teaching of the church are true. I have read the Book of Mormon, I have prayed about it, and I know it is the word of God. I know that there is a living Prophet on this Earth today. I know that God loves and cares for each of us and wants us all to return to live with him again. I know that families can be sealed together for eternity in the Temple, through the power of God. Knowing all of these things has been such a great blessing in my life. It has brought me so much joy, hope, and direction. That is why I continue to follow His gospel and why I have chosen to leave my home, family, friends, and education for a year and a half to share this message with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church weekly. I read the scripture and pray daily. I also go to the Temple as often as possible. I am serving a full time mission for a year and a half in Las Vegas.
