Hi I'm Erick

I'm a true Californian. I absolutely love baseball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California and went to college out of state. I met some amazing people and friends who were members of the Church. During college I converted and have never looked back ever since. I am a die hard baseball fan and love following the lives of LDS baseball stars such as Vernon Law and Wally Joyner. I even recently met Wally! I always try to invite friends out to the baseball games, members or not. I currently have three wonderful children and a beautiful wife.  

Why I am a Mormon

For me the gospel is simple and easy. I follow the commandments and blessing are poured forth. I'm not saying it is easy, but I can guarantee you that when I became a member, lot of doors have opened in my life. I am the only member in my family and it has taken a while for them to all understand my choice of religion, but they respect and have seen a positive change in my life. I solemnly testify that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ and that Thomas Monson is the true prophet on earth.

How I live my faith

I have been given many chances to work with those in my neighborhood. I have taught from the scriptures at a local high school which was amazing. I was able to lead the men in our ward in various outreach programs from shoveling snow to visiting the sick.I currently work with many members in the church through teaching, speaking and advising. I have the specific responsibility of working with all of the girls ages 12-18 and advising their leaders.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

A church leader once said that you can't dip your toes in the pool and call it swimming. In order to know if the Church is true, you must immerse yourself in the Church. Attend meeting, participate and have an open heart. You will then know that the Church is true. Show more Show less
