Hi I'm Eric

I am a young entrepenuer. I am diabetic. I am a father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married to a beautiful bride,and have 3 children. Our life is a busy one, but full of purpose and fun. We love spending time together, sharing dreams and problems and working to get it all figured out. I love to exercise, enjoy watching sports and being dad. My wife is an avid cook, loves to take care of the house and family and play with the kiddos. The kids love being outside, playing made up games and being involved in all their activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon but like anyone had to come to a knowledge of the truth for myself. There was a time that I began to question the things I had been taught so I started going to some other churches to learn their doctrince and feel of the spirit they had to offer. I then approached the Mormon religion in the same way and found as I prayed and read to know the truth I felt the confirmation of the truthfulness of the Mormon church. The church provides me with direction, puropse and perspective. When I live the teachings of the Mormon faith I feel more at peace in a hectic world and have had countless experiences that illustate God's divinity.

How I live my faith

God has given commandments through modern day prophets that reaffirm truths found in ancient scripture. In addition to the commandments that are familiar to Christiandom, God has revelealed through living prophets additional commands to enrich and bless our lives. My family and I live our faith through our daily actions towards others. We look to serve and help when necessary. We seek opportunities to share the joy Christ offers and work to live virtous, chaste and clean lives. We do not drink alcohol or smoke. We pay an honest tithe. We have lots of fun in appropriate times and places, we repent as we may do things to offend our Heavenly Father. We are trying to be like Jesus in all that we do and say. We work to maintain a positive attitude and an eternal perspective.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Eric
We believe that families can literally be together forever after this life is over. We work to solidify our relationships throughout our lives because we know the joy that can exist within the family can last forever. The happiness that comes from a close knit family cannot be duplicated with anything in the world. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Eric
It is a commandment for all young men to serve a mission and they are eligible to serve once they turn 19. This requires preparation as they need to be worthy to act as servants of Jesus Christ. Women are invited, if they choose, to serve once they are 21 or older. Senior married couple can also choose to serve if they feel so compelled and are able physically and/or financially.
