Hi I'm Erik

I'm a commercial diver and crane operator and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 42 years old , a dad , crane operator ,commercial diver, and very happy follower of my Savior Jesus Christ. I love seeing others reseave the blessings of the Gospel. I like to race rc cars, (want to learn how to sail), and have fun just doing anything. Served 4 years active duty in the military, I was in the 82nd airborne, and was able to serve over in Iraq in the first war over there. I grew up on a 100 acre farm in Ohio raising sheep and differenet crops. I'm thankful for all my experience in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of mainly my second Mother. Shortly after being discharged from the army I had made some not so good choices so I ended up being homeless for a couple of weeks. My Dad and Mom took me back in to their home, helped me get a job, and Shared the Gospel with me. I had gotten home after work one day and my mom asked if I would like to meet the Missionaries. I said not today because I had worked 12 hours that day and was tired. So she told the Missionaries not today. Later that day another set of Missionaries came by to visit and that was it from then on out the Lord had my attention. When the Missionaries asked me to give the prayer after the second visit I did and that is when I felt the Holy Ghost so strong. I knew this is where I need to be. I what I was being tought was all true. The Missionaries would call me an golden investigater. I was baptized in 1992 and have been actively living the gospel of Jesus Christ ever since. I know were I come from, I know who I'am, I know were I'am going, It is because of my elder brother and savior I know these things. God has given my that sure knowledge through the Holy Ghost the third member of the God Head. I love Him and know that He lives. I know that there is only one way back home to Him and that is through His Only begotten Son who also lives. I say this and Testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth of the church and community to live a more meaningful life and live the gospel. Itry to do everything I can to stay worthy of all blessings the Lord might have in store for me and help others to do the same. I Love to help all who are in need of something. I also stay away from anything that is filthy ,dirty, degrading, negative, etc that would keep me from sin and temptation. Prayer and studying the scriptures are key to keeping your spirit focused on the right things that will bring true lasting Happiness.
