Hi I'm Erin

I am from Dayton, OH. I love to travel, eat & try new things. Most importantly, I am a Mormon.

About Me

A little bit about me. I was baptized into the church on August 30, 2008. I am the oldest of 2 children, where I was born and raised in Dayton, OH. Honestly, I would say that I am an adventurer. I love being on the go, and doing things. I am a dog and cat lover. I love to eat various types of food, travel to different places, and just be adventurous. I get joy from helping others, and being creative. I love to make stuff out of duck tape, and have recently gotten back into making rubber band things. I love my craftiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I realize and understand that Heavenly Father has a purpose for me in this life. I joined the church after I met a friend who is a member. I noticed her happiness and joy, and her personality, and I just started talking to her about it. She told me to contact the missionairies back in my hometown when I got back.

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by trying to read the Book of Mormon everyday, as well as the Bible. I haven't been to church in a long time because of personal issues, but tomorrow is a new day. You cannot live in the past, you must move forward, so I am moving forward with reading my scriptures, prayer, and associating myself with those who are in the faith.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Erin
In Lehman's Terms, I would say that when you are baptized, it would pretty much sum up as "out with the old, and in with the new". You are washing away your old life, and welcoming in your new life surrounded by those who love you and do not judge you, and love you for who you are. The day after the baptism you, who was just baptized would then be confirmed into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by receiving the holy ghost. The people that you encounter and meet are those who you shall cherish for the rest of your life and where once you pass on you will live in paradise in the celestial kingdom with our loving, Heavenly Father.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Erin
If you have a question burning inside of you and you are walking down the street or at a store, or library and see the missionaries (young men or women with black badges) identifying that they are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; do not be hesitant to stop them and ask them a question. That is what they are there for. They are there for you. If you have a question and you are on the Internet, you are can go to Mormon.org and chat with some missionaries, who will connect you to the right people. If you would like to come worship with us, don't hesitate to utilize the mormon.org site and click on the link "Worship With Us" where you'll enter in your location and it will show a map and address with the closest locations to you.
