Hi I'm Eric.

I grew up in Montana. I have a wife and two kids. I love to watch movies and Folf. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of two children. I graduated with a bachelor degree in English and earth science education. I'm a cell-phone salesman. I love to watch films, especially those by Christopher Nolan. I love to Folf. Many may know it by Disc Golf, but I know it as Folf. I love food and my iPhone.

Why I am a Mormon

It's a concept that can only be understood while living the principles presented: the commandments are not boundaries; they set and keep me free. I've lost family members and have gained new ones, as my children. I love knowing where my family goes after death and where they came from. Everything in the gospel makes sense; it feels right; it registers with the rest of my body and mind. I know it's true, not because I was raised as a Mormon, but because I found for myself. It took work. It took study, faith, and open mind, selflessness, and prayer--and especially action before and much more so afterwards.

How I live my faith

I'm the secretary in the young mens organization. I created my own attendance role on my iPhone. After each month, from my phone, I email the role to the ward clerk. I attend services each Sunday and actively try to add to class discussions. I find I get more out the class when I give more.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Eric.
The Book of Mormon was written by various prophets and men who resided in the Americas years ago, from 600 BC to roughly 420 AD. It contains the history of those who lived here, their wars and peace, their teachings and prophesies given them from God, and especially it contains the record and teachings of Jesus Christ, as He visited those here shortly after His resurrection in the old world.

What is the Relief Society?

Eric.
An organization for adult women. Within it they teach one another at their level and understanding. They accomplish this by attending Sunday services and visiting each other throughout the week and month, ensuring they and their families are well and kept. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Eric.
Eternal Life is the opportunity to return to God, our Heavenly Father, and His son Jesus Christ, and live with Them forever and become like Them and do what They do. The next life will not be spent lounging on clouds and eating grapes. That would be so boring. The next life and eternal life will be spent learning and applying such knowledge and wisdom, just as our Heavenly Father does now. Show more Show less
