Hi I'm Eric Nelson

I grew up in Arizona, I love to have fun and work hard, I love sports and being active, And I'm a Mormon

About Me

 My name is Eric, I'm currently serving a mission in the Georgia Atlanta Mission! I played sports throughout high school, such as football, and weightlifting. I have three older brothers and two adopted little sisters, both my parents are still together! I love them so much! We have been through so much and yet we love eachother every second! I love the outdoors, such as hiking and camping and watching sunsets and all of that good stuff! i like to think im outgoing, and easy to get along with.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in the church all of my life, but never felt the connection to the gospel before. In August of 2010 I decided that I needed to know what I have been practicing my whole life was true, I read the Book of Mormon and got down on my knees just like Moroni promised, and asked our Heavenly Father if these things were true, all the many things I was reading and learning about. As I prayed I felt/found the happiness and joy it speaks of in the scriptures! In my head I just knew it was right! The most correct thing in this universe! I really came to know that Jesus Christ is the Christ that came here to be crucified by the world so we could return to live with him again! I came to know and love the Book of Mormon and the truth it contains! I strive to feel that peace/joy/happiness everyday! And as a missionary I feel the love and joy working through me to help others come unto the same knowledge that I have came to know is right! And help them come closer to their Savior.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by serving others everyday and representing our Lord Jesus Christ! There is no greater Joy then that! "When ye are in the service of your fellow men, ye are only in the service of your God." This is so true! It is really such a blessing to serve others and grow to love them! I'm so thankful for the love Jesus offers me! and I know that My Redeemer Lives!
