Hi I'm Erin

I have joy. I have truth. I have love... because I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the wife of a handsome, loving, he's-got-it-all kinda husband. We are the parents of the spunkiest baby girl. I love the energy of college basketball games. I try to garden and live holistically--which is often negated by my deep and abiding love for chicken wings. I have worked closely with abating organized crime, spreading the gospel to the poor and lowly, spray painting, playing volleyball in international tournaments and am attempting to become a hound on the harmonica. I strive to love what I hate (vacuuming and clutter are still winning that war.) My guilty pleasure is the odd platform video game. Nature is my nurture. I am domestic...and international :) I thought the Book of Mormon/YouTube Challenge would be a fun thing to do in my spare time, so I started it.

Why I am a Mormon

In my late teens/early 20's a deep and lasting sorrow as a result of poor decisions I had made in my life compelled me to seek for peace and a lifting of the burden of those mistakes. I sought out many different faiths, many different proclaimed method's of fixing it, but in the end it was the faith of my fathers (my parents converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints prior to my birth) that offered that relief. Since having that miraculous experience--as the moment of forgiveness truly was a miracle--it has been my mission to bring that peace and knowledge of the true and lasting remission of sin into the lives of others. Revelation from God through the Holy Ghost is real. Assurance comes from knowing that God is unchanging and calls a living prophet to oversee His household on the earth today. I am a Mormon because the teachings of the Book of Mormon have brought me closer to God and Christ--more than any other teaching in the world. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ gives me a perfect knowledge of who I am, where I came from, what the heck I am doing on this planet, and where myself and all others go after this life. I am a Mormon because I am a Child of God and it is through being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that I am truly able to understand my divinity and know how to behave and excel and honor Him as His daughter. No greater peace comes than knowing and applying this truth.

How I live my faith

It seems that hiccups occur in our life at every turning corner and my faith gives me the ability to endure them peacefully, as if our road of life is freshly paved. My faith also helps me to have confidence in the decisions I make everyday. If I am living worthily and doing all I can to live the way God has asked me to, the decisions I make and way I live my life will always lead me in the right direction.
