Hi I'm Eric

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I coach U6 soccer and volunteer as an 11 year old scout leader. I like to work on my boat between launches and I love to enjoy water sports with my family. I have three wonderful boys that keep me busy. I am happily married to the most beautiful wife a guy could ask for and truly enjoy spending time with my family. My boys and I raise chickens in our backyard for eggs. After a year of raising the chickens the boys still come running in waving the eggs over their heads when they find them in the hen house.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, or member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I love the way I feel when I go to church, serve others, and follow Christ's example. I am far from perfect and have many faults, but know that as I continue to follow my Savior, He will lead me in my day to day activities. The simple things: reading the scriptures, praying, and serving are where my testimony of God and His son Jesus Christ are re-affirmed and solidfied that He lives and through the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon along with modern day prophets I can learn about Him and the way He would have me live so i can return to live with Him.

How I live my faith

I serve by helping 11 year-old scouts achieve their rank advancements and build their faith in God. I also teach a lesson once a month to my fellow bretheren. I also serve in my community by coaching U6 soccer and teach boys about the fundamentals of soccer and playing sports.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Eric
No, we do not. He was a great prophet, but we do not worship him. We are greatful that he restored God's church as we are greatful that Moses lead the Jews out of Egypt. However, we worship our Savior Jesus and place our faith and hope in Him. Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

Eric
Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, like Abraham, Moses, Jacob, and others. However, Joseph Smith was a prophet that restored the gospel of Jesus Christ. After much researching other religions and asking God which church he should join God and His son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph and explained to him that he was to restore God's church on the earth.
