Hi I'm Emma

I'm a middle child, I love to write, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a middle child of five who grew up in a home where working hard and developing talents in whatever way possible was very important. Because of this, I have so many different sides of my personality. I love sports -- I run, swim, and played soccer and basketball -- but I also love all kinds of art, from playing the piano and singing to making mosaics and writing. Words on a page always seemed like an easier form of expression to me than speaking aloud. Writing is something that makes me feel comfortable. Through it, I try to express the joy I find in the little things and the importance of seeing the big picture instead of being caught up in the whirlwind of life. I like to observe, and because of this, I have grown to love people. It doesn't matter to me the color of someone's skin or what they believe or to whom they are attracted. All that matters is that they are here sharing the same air and sights and ground that I walk on.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it has brought love and light to my life. It allows me to express myself not only through my words or my music but through my actions and from my heart. Being a Mormon is something I would never give up. It is hope, it is faith, it is knowledge.

How I live my faith

Because I know that life can often be a challenge, I try to remember that I'm not the only one who experiences hard things. I love service because I've found that I am most happy when others are happy. When I serve others and see a smile light up someone's face, I know that I have done something to help the world, even if it's just one little thing. Everyone's smile is beautiful, and the world deserves to see every single one. I want everyone to know that there is something worth living for. As I love others through charity, I hope that they too can see how much goodness it brings to the world and decide to serve others as well. My faith isn't something that I practice only on Sundays when I do to Church; it's something I live. I don't pick and choose what I do and when I do it because I want everyone to know that what my faith teaches is something worth understanding. The center of my faith is love, and I strive to project that in everything I do.
