Hi I'm Emma

I've been a member of the LDS church my whole life. I'm in school at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 kids. I have two younger brothers and 1 younger sister that I love very much. I absolutely adore the outdoors, books, tv shows, and movies like Harry Potter, Sherlock, and To Kill a Mockingbird. I love camping, hiking, and rock climbing. I moved to a different state after my junior year of High School, and never thought I'd end up where I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have faith that God is our loving Heavenly Father, and that he loves all of us and wants us to be with him again one day. I know that that is why he gives us commandments and asks us to follow them. I know that Jesus Christ payed the price for all of our sins and felt every painful experience that each of us will ever go through. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon and that it is the word of God and that it is scripture like the Bible. Most of all I'm a Mormon because I know that God loves all of us and wants us to be safe and truly happy, and that this true happiness comes when we follow His commandments and live His gospel, which was restored to the Earth by the prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day of my life by praying every morning and night, reading my scriptures daily, and looking for opportunities to help those around me. I also try to do as Christ did and love people, and not judge them for past mistakes they might have made.
