Hi I'm Erin

I am a registered nurse, energetic optimist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from nursing school in 2011 and since then have been working full time as a geriatric nurse. I hope to become a nurse practitioner in the future. I love being outdoors and especially enjoy biking and hiking. I am the oldest of five kids and I count my siblings as some of my closest friends, along with my wonderful parents. I love life and find happiness in simple pleasures like beautiful sunrises and the laughter of children.

Why I am a Mormon

While I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it wasn't until I was a teenager that I felt truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I began asking myself questions regarding religion and whether or not I believed anything I had been taught as a child. Then one day I felt the confirming peace of the Holy Ghost reminding me that I knew the truth. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is indeed the church of Christ restored in its fullness. I know this because of how happy being a Mormon makes me feel. My membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is my greatest blessing.  

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I act, holding to standards outlined in a pamphlet called "For the Strength of Youth Fulfilling our Duty to God." This pamphlet gives specific instruction on a variety of topics from dress and appearance to dating and physical health to entertainment and the media. I am also actively involved in my ward by accepting the responsibility of accompanying the hymns we sing every Sunday for a church meeting involving all of the women in my ward. Even though my service is small, I know that I am an important member of my ward and that my contribution is appreciated.  

What is the Relief Society?

Erin
The Relief Society is an organization for women over age 18 in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As equal partners with the men, women in Relief Society come together to lift and teach one another and to strengthen the institute of the family. Relief Society allows women the opportunity to recognize and develop their divine talents, such as compassion and love.   Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Erin
Mormons are indeed Christians. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we place Jesus Christ at the center of our worship. We seek to follow Christ's perfect example of love toward everyone and willingness to submit to God's will. Not only do we believe in Christ, but we believe in His Atonement for all mankind which allows us to repent of all our sin and return to live with God someday. We seek to become Christ-like in our words, thoughts, and actions. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Erin
Above all else, it is imperative that we develop faith in God and in our Savior, Jesus Christ. While men and women may fail us at times or cause us to doubt our faith in them, God and Jesus Christ are constant sources of strength that we can always trust in. Even when times are difficult and we pass through trials, God only wants what is the best for us. In order to show our faith in Him, we trust in His plan for our lives and confidently do what He asks of us. Faith means putting our belief into action and keeping the Lord's commandments regardless of what happens to us. We stay true to God because we know He is always there for us. Show more Show less
