Hi I'm Erin

I love to live, love and laugh... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Oregon and lived there pretty much my whole life. I am the 6th child of ten. It was always fun and crazy having a big family but it is worth every moment, the good and bad. My Parents are my greatest support and my family is my team. With out them I wouldn’t be who I am today. They mean the world to me. I love sports and most of all I love playing them. I love dancing, music, art, being creative and being outside. My all time favorite thing to do is to be with my family. I love to smile, laugh and have fun no matter where I am and I'm always myself. I love helping others and seeing the smile on their face. I love being who I am because I know who I am... I am a Daughter of God.

Why I am a Mormon

It is simple. What I know, I know to be true. Growing up I didn’t' learn everything at once and still don’t know everything, but my understanding grew as I began to apply, read, pray and follow his will not mine. Learning what I know was not easy and some things took time for me to understand. It wasn't untill I my heart was open and I was weak and willing to listen that i Understood. I am not perfect and I still make mistakes, but I know I can become perfect through my Savior. I know that it is only possible through His atonement and mercy can I return to live with my Father in Heaven. I know without a doubt that the atonement works. I have used it in my life and it is something that I know if I didn't have I wouldn't be where I'm at today. Our Father in Heaven wants us to be happy and has provided many ways for us to have peace, joy, love, happiness and many more wonderful things. We just have to be willing to accept Him and that means we have to act. God will never force anyone to do anything. He will be there to help guide us but in the end He will let us make the choice. He loves us and knows that by our choices we will learn the good and the bad. He loves us so much that His arms are outstretched in front of us but we have to be willing to open ours and run into His. That takes faith, action and trusting in him. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and he saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. I know that God's prophet today, Thomas S. Monson leading and guiding His church on this earth. I know the Book of Mormon is true because I have read the pages and felt the peace and joy that it brings into my life. It is true and if you don’t believe read it for yourself and find out. If you do not read, pray, and apply then you will never know what I know. I know that this gospel is true, I am grateful for it in my life and how it has shown me who I am, I am a daughter of God. The world always changes but God and the gospel will always stay the same.

How I live my faith

I served a 18th month mission in Atlanta Georgia and loved every moment. Now I am currently serving the Lord in the LDS Church. I work with the members in any way to helping people feel the same love, joy and peace that i have in my life. Just being able to let them know that they are loved and thought of is the greatest satisfaction you can get. I Love my Father in Heaven.
