Hi I'm Erin

I'm a native Arizonan, fourth generation. I'm a former high school homecoming queen! I'm a mom and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am not your typical female. I don't craft. I abhor shopping. And I really don't wear jewelry. However, I do like a clean house! I enjoy reading a good clean book. I like to play Just Dance with my children on our Wii. I am trying to learn how to play the piano, better late than never. My newest craze is indexing. Basically, I transcribe records (birth, death, census) so they become searchable online. It is a very satisfying hobby! I am a mother of four amazing children and married to my best friend. Oh and one more thing I am a college graduate and I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education!

Why I am a Mormon

First I was a Mormon because I was born into a Mormon family! Yet, at some point everyone has to stand on their own two feet. Now, I have chosen to continue being a Mormon because it is a great way to live. I have automatic social connections with those I attend church with. I have a healthy lifestyle and am free from addiction. The knowledge of a Savior and eternal families helps me make good choices now and to value what is most important. I find safety and a true sense of peace in following the counsel of a living prophet. I am grateful for my Savior and for His atonement. I fall short sometimes and He makes it possible for me to course correct on a daily ongoing basis!

How I live my faith

My faith is part of my everyday. My day includes prayers; individual, family, mealtimes and in emergencies. I know God hears and answers prayers! I also read from the scriptures on a regular basis. This helps me stay focused and remember what is important in life. I try to treat others the way I know Jesus would want me to treat them. I'm not perfect in any of this but I feel my day goes better when I try my best!
