Hi I'm Eric

I am a husband, a father and a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent graduate with a degree in accounting. I enjoy snowboarding, scuba diving, travel, reading, running, hiking and photography. I love reading the teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ and am striving to live them every day. My wife and I recently brought home our first child, a beautiful little girl. I know that families are eternal and that as my family and I follow Christ's teachings we will be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

In my youth I tried hard to not be associated with the Mormons because they weren't viewed as cool or popular. As soon as I realized what being a Mormon has to offer I didn't care what other people thought anymore. Since I began attending church and living the principles that are taught in the Book of Mormon I have found happiness that cannot be attained anywhere else, trust me I've looked. My happiness has come through serving others, learning and following the examples of Christ and starting a family. I know that Christ loves each of us and wishes that we all come unto Him and find true happiness.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to serve in the church in many different aspects. I have taught the youth, worked with Boy Scouts and am currently assisting with the membership records in our local area. There are many opportunities to serve and in every one joy is found in knowing that others are benefiting from your time and effort.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

As a Mormon I believe that society is based on the fundamentals of a family. Individuals join to become families and families join geographically to become a community and society. If the family that a society is built upon fails then a society is weakened and when our society becomes weak we begin to lose freedoms, including freedom to worship, and pray and attend meetings all of which bring us more happiness. Families therefore = Happiness. Show more Show less
