Hi I'm Eric

A Wandmaker, Writer, Mandolin Player, social activist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I look to do anything that catches my interests. I like experimenting with a lot of different forms of art--sort of an artist. I am getting into pyrography (wood burning). I have also done a lot of woodworking and a lot of more of the artistic areas for wood--turning, cabinetmaking, scroll saw, carvings, anything that looks cool. I am obsessed with trying new things. I am a believer in constant change. Also, I eat only a plant-based diet (aka vegan-ish). In the future, I will become a Creative Writing Professor. I also a musician- the bodhran, drum kit, violin, guitar, vocals, and most recently the mandolin.

Why I am a Mormon

This is the only way to true happiness. Even though I was born in the church, I didn't want anything to do with religion. I searched through all the world religions (both the normal and the absurd), but never found anything that was the complete truth. I was very much opposed to the "Latter-Day Saints." It wasn't until much later in my life where I couldn't find anything that gave me a true lasting joy that I decided to check out what my parents were taking me to throughout the years. I decided to read the Book of Mormon. I was skeptical at first, and it took me a long time of study and pray to get over my pride. The Book of Mormon is the best book I have ever read. It is so complex, yet so simple. No mere man could write this book except it be from a higher power. This is the only way that I have found a true happiness.

How I live my faith

I am now a missionary in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I do not get paid for anything that I do. I never thought I would be out here prompting a religion, but now I know that I am really just prompting the "way."
