Hi I'm Erik

I'm a husband, a father, a leader, and a follower. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happily married father of five. I went to college after high school, but dropped out. I served in the Air Force. I worked my way through college part-time. Now, I work as a manager. I like to read, and I trade options in the stock market. I've done my share of coaching children's teams, as well as camping with the boy scouts. My sons are all Eagle Scouts. I've loved watching countless baseball, basketball, soccer, football games; and tennis matches that my children and their friends have played in.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel is true. There is a purpose to life. An important thing to me, and a very cool thing, is that we do not need to trust any person for our knowledge about God and the purpose of life. If we really want to know, we can find out through the Holy Ghost. Every good thing that I am, that's part of my life, or that I've helped bring about, is a result of the blessings of the gospel in my life. The better I live the gospel, the sweeter the relationships with my wife and family.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures; pray; attend church; find ways to serve others; work on being a good husband, father, and employee; and I try to be honest in all my dealings.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Erik
First, you have to really want to know. You can't pretend or fake it. Second, you have to put a little work into it: read the Book of Mormon, pray, attend church. Then you can start feeling the Holy Ghost bear witness of it's truthfullness. If you give the Lord a fair chance, you can know. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Erik
Jesus Christ. If we put our lives in His hands, He will make us a better person than we can make of ourselves, and we'll have more peace, joy, and happiness. Show more Show less
