About Emily

For those of you who didn't really know Emily all that well: Emily Spencer was a beautiful, vibrant, fun loving 16 year old. She loved the Lord, her family and friends and loved to sing and cheer for Belpre High School. Emily’s life was tragically cut short on December 22, 2010.

Here is an assignment she was given and this will tell you all you need to know about Emily, in her own words.

What is so important in my life is God.  I am a very big Christian and I love God.  Without Him I don't know where I would be.  When I don't feel good or don't know what to do, I turn to God to help me.  I try my very best not to use bad language or to be rude to anyone.  It's not nice, and it makes other people feel bad when you say that stuff.  You don't know where everybody comes from, some people don't have very nice homes.  That doesn't make it right to make fun of people.  When I walk down the halls of BHS and see or hear people being made fun of, it hurts me.  Why would anybody stoop to that level to do that?  Peer pressure?  Not one single person is perfect, I know that.  Everybody will make mistakes, it's human nature.  I wish that everybody would see God the way I do.  Loving, kind and forgiving.  I feel like my religion is very strong.  I try spreading the good news by putting Bible verses and lyrics on Facebook.  I like everybody seeing the Bible verses I put up.  I don't care what people think.  I get a lot of comments about being a Christian.  It doesn't bother me.  I just ignore most of it.  At least they know Who I'm living for.
