Hi I'm Eric

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

This is my family. My family is the most important thing to me. We stay very active by going on hikes, playing in the leaves, riding bikes, playing games around the kitchen table. I am a lot like you. I work to take care of my family, struggle with my personal shortcomings, and have talents that I'm trying to improve.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe my family can be together after we die. Jesus Christ made it possible for us if we live our lives in a way to be qualified for this wonderful blessing. Jesus taught, "Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 18:18) Through the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we now have temples where families can be bound for eternity. I am humbled to have had this knowledge taught to me by my parents and am grateful now for the blessing to teach these truths to my son.

How I live my faith

When I tell others that I am a Mormon, I want them to first know that I live a clean and honest life. I treat others with respect and I let the things I've learned through my faith guide my choices and actions. I feel a great sense of responsibility to not let anything in my conduct cause someone to be disappointed in me. I don't always do this perfectly but I do my best. I have been given a great blessing to belong to this church. In my congregation I have the privilege of working with the full-time missionaries. You may have seen them in your neighborhood or riding their bikes around town dressed in their suits and white shirts. These young men and women, the missionaries, have put 2 years of their lives on hold and dedicated their time to serving and teaching others the gospel of Jesus Christ. I help the missionaries in our area coordinate their teaching and help those who choose to join our church through the transition to membership. I encourage you to stop and talk with one of the missionaries serving in your area the next time you have the opportunity to do so.
