Hi I'm Erik Edvalson

I'm imperfect. I try to be as normal as possible. I try to be better everyday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married and Julie and I have 3 boys and a little girl. I work as a statistician/data analyst and in my spare time I like to watch college football and I also restore old bicycles. I'm kind of porky so I have to exercise everyday. I have a weakness for BBQ, especially Carolina BBQ and Texas Brisket. I believe that God has the ability to watch over all of us and take care of us...Luke 12 6-7...6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore ye are of more value than many sparrows.    

Why I am a Mormon

I feel fortunate and blessed to have been raised in the Mormon faith and to have gone on a 2 year mission. I've done my best to live right and be a good Christian and life has led me down this path and I'll continue to follow it.

How I live my faith

I give my wife and kids a hug every day before I leave for work and I hope that I value the lives of all others more than my own even though I have selfish tendencies.
