Hi I'm Erin Goodman

I am Dental Hygiene student. I like to travel. I want make an influence on the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student studying to obtain my bachelors in Dental Hygiene. I will officially be an RDH in December of 2012. I am married and don't have any kids, but one day hope to start a family. I love to travel. I was a student Ambassador and traveled around the world to explore different cultures, met political leaders of over 6 countries, and studied at the BYU Jerusalem Center. I love volleyball, swimming, and reading (non-textbooks!)

Why I am a Mormon

My grandfather was a convert, so I grew up as a Mormon, but I still had to obtain a testimony of my own. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know he atoned for mine and your sins. It is a comfort for me to know that he has experienced everything I have been through. I am a Mormon because I have faith in the Book of Mormon. I know that it was an inspired book preserved for our time. I am a Mormon because I believe in the Plan of Salvation- that Heavenly Father prepared a plan for his children (us) to return to him and to be sealed to our families for eternity. I am a Mormon because I believe that God hears my prayers, that Heavenly Father cares for me, and that he answers my prayers when I ask in faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving in every way that I can. In my ward, I serve the women of the church as a secretary. I focus on each individual sister and make sure she is taken care of. If a sister is sick, or not at church, I make sure she has everything she needs. I make sure no one is forgotten. Heavenly Father loves all of his children. I strive to strengthen each individual, help those in need, and prepare women for the blessings of eternal life. I also contribute to the community and by sharing my talents and knowledge.
