Hi I'm Eric

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of three beautiful young girls and the husband of a lovely woman. I'm currently a design engineer for a major communications company. I hired on with them after serving for four years as a military analyst in the US Army. We currently call Texas home, and we've fallen in love with the Texas Hill Country. I love music, especially independent artists and live bands. My wife and I have enjoyed several concerts together in local venues here and on the west coast. Music is expressive to me and I love hearing new and interesting acts.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because my mother had dear friends that shared the gospel message with her, before my birth. She has always been a shining example to me. When I was eight years old, I was baptized into the church by my father. Growing up in the church helped nurture my growing beliefs in Jesus Christ and modern revelation. Just before my nineteenth birthday I experienced an overpowering reassurance of the gospel's truth and my desire to share what I found with others. I was blessed to serve a church mission in the Sacramento California area were I shared my beliefs and feelings with many wonderful people seeking truth.

How I live my faith

I serve in my local meeting house, helping our local leader account for membership records and donations submitted by local members. I also meet with other fellow members monthly, sharing gospel messages and good conversation. I also remember the blessings that Christ has shared with me, and I thank Him daily. I ask for his blessing and guidance through prayer. As a father, I sit with my family for dinner and we read from scripture. It's a time where we can connect with each other and discuss gospel principles. Finally, I try to remember Christ's charge to be a good example. I seek to give my employer an honest days work for the financial security they afford me.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes. We believe in Jesus Christ. He is our Savior and Redeemer. It is only through Him that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
