Hi I'm Eirik

I am a father and husband Grew up in Washington state. I raise honey bees and love Art, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father and a husband, I love being a beekeeper, I love to garden. Or anything to do with the out doors.

Why I am a Mormon

This a very great question! I grew up as a member of the church, I served my mission, I had to find my own testimony along the way as life has thrown me curve balls. I have searched the scriptures both of my faith and other faiths. Every time I have had challenges it always come down to my testimony Of Christ and what I have found to be true. being a Mormon has given me the balance and peace I need to be in the world and raise a family and be a husband.

How I live my faith

I try and be a example to all i meet. I work with the young men in my local area I am a counselor in our stake young men's presidency. I help mentor young men to be better men to help them to gain their own testimony of Christ. Each summer I work with over 200 young men ages 16 to 19. in a youth leadership training camp. That is lead by the kids i as an adult staff member is there just to supervise the youth that run it. It's my favorite thing I do in the church. I get to see and mentor them to live better lives and I in turn get to live my religion in ways that helps people make better choices in life and still make it be cool.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

For me its about being able to support my family in hard times. yes most people hear we have a years worth of food. I try my best what has helped me is during these tough times is using what we have put away has helped us save money. were we did not need to go to the store. Some thing else it has helped me learn to grow a Garden and enjoy the results of my labor. it also let me help others who are in need I can use what i put a way and give to my neighbors if they stand in need.

What is being a Mormon like?

For me its the best thing in the world. It brings peace and harmony in my family's life. I am not saying life is all rainbows and gum drops. It just helps me as a dad and husband to have the perceptive that I need to go through life. Knowing that my Father in heaven loves me and he sent his son Jesus Christ to Antone for my sins that I may once again live with him. Show more Show less
