Hi I'm Emily

I grew up in Kennewick, Washington. I will be serving in the Kansas Wichita Mission.

About Me

I love to read and collect books. I was on the swim team in high school and love to swim because of it, but that's the only kind of athleticism that I've accomplished. I'm a sophomore at BYU as a Pre-Music Major and Modern Hebrew Minor. I love learning!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church and have parents who are active in following its teachings. But as a child I watched some of my siblings struggle with addictions to drugs. It made life hard, and I grew up fast because of it. I decided early on that I didn't want to follow the paths my siblings took, so I studied the teachings of the church to learn more about how to be happy and follow Christ. Doing this led to me staying in the church and actively participating in it.

How I live my faith

I love to go to church with my family and watch my niece and nephews learning more about Christ, and helping them in that learning. I try to do my best in keeping the gospel close to my heart and showing that in my actions and mannerisms. I look forward to being able to serve others on my mission.
