Hi I'm Erin

From Idaho to Utah to Oregon. I'm a wife and mother. I'm an advocate for the good in life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been a singer, dancer, actor, mom, wife, seamstress, and personal chef (for my family of course). I have a deep love for the humanities and all that humankind has accomplished through history. It awes me to see how people have developed the talents that God has given them. At this time in my life I am fortunate to be seeking out new hobbies and interests. Every day I look forward to learning a little more about myself and about who I want to become.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Mormon church, but that is not why I am a Mormon. This gospel is the only thing in my life that has brought me so much happiness. When I read my Book of Mormon my heart is filled with the warmth that spiritual truth brings. This same feeling comes as I listen and follow the true and living prophet on this Earth, President Thomas S. Monson. Through all my faults and trials I know I can rely on our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He suffered for our sins and through Him we can access the Atonement. It is real. I know that Jesus is my Redeemer and brother. He has been there for me when I have felt lost and alone. I am a daughter of God and see my true worth when I see myself through His eyes. I know the Book of Mormon is true because I've read it and prayed about it. I think that is the best way to figure out anything in your life. I don't believe because people tell me to, I believe because I've figured it out for myself.

How I live my faith

In the mornings I read my scriptures and pray. As I do these things I see the Lord's hand throughout the rest of my day. I sing church songs with my daughters every afternoon. I want to empower them and teach them who they are: daughters of God. I want them to see their divine nature and value. I teach the ten year olds in church on Sundays. I love to see their eyes light up when they learn about the gospel. I like to meet new people and learn from them. I love the friendships I've gained from meeting new people in my neighborhood.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

We believe that families can be together forever. We believe that the family unit lasts longer than, "til death do us part". It lasts for eternity if a family is sealed together in the right place, at the right time with the proper priesthood authority. Show more Show less
