Hi I'm Sarah Erickson

I'm mom, a horse trainer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to a beautiful little girl. I grew up around horses and knew it would be part of my life. I went to college in Wisconsin to get my bachelor degree. I know it is important to continually educating myself. I own my own business; training horses and giving riding lessons. This allows me to be a stay at home mom and do what I love. A few of my favorite past times are: Reading - mostly historical fiction, Sewing, Crafty stuff (as my husband calls it), working with my hands, fixing things. I love being outside, camping, fishing and sitting by the fire. I love music. I've been playing the flute since I was in 5th grade. I enjoy singing and I am passing that love onto my daughter. I enjoy being in choral groups or doing solos. Most important to me is spending time with my family, and progress eternally with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church. It has always been my choice to go to church and enjoy the blessings of having the full gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that our Savior came to earth to make it possible for my sins to be forgiven. His love is unconditional, He is the example we need to follow. I hope I can live up to the potential that our Heavenly Father sees in me.

How I live my faith

I am in a smaller branch. I am 2nd counselor in Primary Presidency (Sunday school for ages3-12yrs), Primary music leader, Branch Music chairman. I love being able to share the talents that I have been given. I have been blessed with many callings in the church, I have learned a lot in each and have grown with each. Some of the callings have started as a HUGE trial for me, stretching me beyond my comfort, in the end I was always melancholy when I was released. The Lord knows what we need now and will need in the future; each has prepared me for something to come in the future. In the end I have always been grateful for my callings.
