Hi I'm Emma

I grew up in the United States. I just finished my freshman year of collage at Brigham Young University Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to college at BYU Idaho, just finished my freshman year. My major is therapeutic recreation, with this I want to one day own or work at a rec center that teaches people that are autistic or have down syndrome how to swim. I enjoy playing sports my favorite is water polo. I have four sisters and no brothers. My favorite past time activity is play card games with my friends and family but I also enjoy watching movies. I will be serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in New Zealand for 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I developed my faith in this church when I was a senior in High School, my ward was having a "Book of Mormon Read". This is an activity that is held at a members house were the youth of the church read all of the Book of Mormon together. I did not understand all of the principle of the church at the time and I still don't but I knew that they were true because of the warm feeling of comfort that I had. After reading of the Book of Mormon, I went home and knelled next to my bed to pray to my Heavenly Father and see if this feeling was a confirmation that this was the true church. I received a firm yes and that feeling of comfort only grew more. I found that as I keep the commandments of the church and remain obedient to the Lord and can have this feeling where ever I go and do. I have received so many blessings from this gospel and I know that it is because this church is true and that my Heavenly Father loves me.

How I live my faith

While in college I have had a great opportunity to have the same faith with many people my school. Everyone is so kind and loving to each other. I have been able to get to know so many awesome people through a calling that I had in church. I was the president over half of the woman in my ward. I was in charge of organizing activities and getting to know everyone and try to help them with their needs and spiritual growth.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

The current Prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Russel M. Nelson, I know he is called of God and receives revelation from God on how to lead this church. Show more Show less
