Hi I'm Erica.

I love to laugh and smile. I am a quadruplet.I love playing basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a senior in college studying early childhood special education. Attending college is definitely benefiting my life in so many positive ways that I never thought possible. I have learned that I can do hard things. I can achieve anything I set my mind to as long as I endure to the end and not give up. I love to learn new things and progress in life. I love playing sports especially basketball and being actively involved with those around me. I love my family and the close bonds that we share. My motto in life is from the words of Walt Disney," Keep Moving Forward." I think that is the key to success, happiness, and joy in life. I love my life and all the many wonderful things in it. I just got to keep enjoying the ride and live my life with no regrets. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is what brings me happiness and peace in my life. Oh how blessed I am because of the knowledge and truth that has been testified to me. The knowledge and faith that I have developed is a definite strength to me. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. I have a happy life. I have been raised a Mormon my entire life and I know it is what gives me a purpose and a reason to excel and be excited for what life has to offer. It makes me who I am and gives me the incentive to improve and progress and become a better person because of the never-ending blessings that are constant in my life when I choose the right.  

How I live my faith

I try to be a positive example to others and fill my life with Faith, Hope, and Charity. I strive to look for the good in all things. I remind myself that I truly am a Child of God and he knows me and he loves me. I surround myself with people who build me up and influence me in ways that are pleasing to my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ. I seek to learn and know more about the church and its gospel principles. I try to be a better person each day. I focus on moving forward in my life. I attend church regularly and fulfill my church callings and duties. I strive to be obedient and honest with my fellow men. I try to be the best example and influence to others that I can be. I set goals that will build me up and draw me closer to my Savior and I work to achieve them. I keep a journal and record each day the things that I'm grateful for. I thank my Heavenly Father in prayer daily for the tender mercies and blessings that he provides for me.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We need to always be learning more of Jesus Christ and his teachings. He is perfect. Even though none of us are perfect we can learn from Jesus Christ and try to follow in his footsteps. The more we follow his teachings and his example,we will see his unconditional love for us. He wants us to be happy! As we see and recognize the blessings and peace in our lives, our faith will increase. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We first need to have the desire to get to know him. Then we need to act on that. We need to pray unto our Father in Heaven sincerely and make him apart of our lives. We need to have faith in him and know that he is real. As we seek to learn of him and pray unto him, we will come to know of him better and grow closer to him each day. We will notice the blessings that he bestows upon us and continue to seek him. Show more Show less
