Hi I'm Eric

I am a medical student trying to learn the in's and out's of becoming a doctor and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for a few years and I will very shortly have my first child, and although I am a little nervous, I am extremely excited to have a son I can spend time with. Other than all the time I put in attempting to learn how to be a doctor I enjoy spending my time in the mountains. I love mountain biking, rock climbing, camping... really the only mountain sport I don't do much of is skiing (although I have done it before). I also really enjoy watching and playing soccer and was extremely excited to have a professional soccer team come to my home state of Utah, which I still follow even though I live out of state now. I love working and am excited for the time I can leave the school atmosphere behind and work a real job and work on other projects I don't have time for during school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents and longer have been members. I have had the opportunity to see and study other religions in America and in other countries, and although many churches have and teach many correct doctrines, I have felt and have come to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church which contains the full truth and gospel of Jesus Christ. The principles I live by as a member of the church have brought me greater happiness and comfort with who I am, why I am here, and what happens to me and my family after I die. There is no greater comfort than to know God's plan of salvation.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I live a life similar to any other person in the world save a few dietary changes and lifestyle choices. I attend our church meeting once a week and strive to live by my beliefs and be an example of them throughout the week. I am involved in the Boy Scout of America program as a committee chair in our church group. I visit with a few members of our church each month to see if they are in need of any help and to talk about our beliefs.
