Hi I'm Erin

I love my family, musical theater, and Disneyland....and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, I'm the wife of my best friend, the mother of three beautiful grown children, and one precious angel in heaven that we can't wait to see again! I am also the grandmother of a spectacular little boy and a beautiful little princess! I am a musical theater geek and studied theater, dance and voice on Broadway in New York! I work full-time for our Church Educational Program supporting the religious education of high school and college aged students. I am also currently attending college to finish up my degree work! My life is busy, but wonderful....and I LOVE being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Catholic religion while I was growing up, although my family was not regular church goers. By high school, I was visiting several different types of churches with my friends, and was involved in the "Young Life" program. I loved that. I loved the feeling of knowing Jesus was my Savior. After returning from theater school in New York, I was introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It wasn't hard for me to realize that this was what I had been searching for in regards to religion. It had a familiar, warm feeling as I learned that I have a Father in Heaven who knows me, loves me, and has a plan for my life.

How I live my faith

Every day I am hopefully living in a way that would help me be filled with the Holy Spirit of God. His spirit is the guiding power that directs us and testifies to us all that is true and good. Every day, I hope that I am an example of Gods love for his children. I have been blessed to be able to serve the youth of the church in many different ways. Most commonly, I work with the young women (12-18 yrs. old) in the church, but recently I have been working with the "angels" of the church....the children ages 18 months - 11 years old. Where could there be a more pure and precious group? We learn together principles of the gospel like: I am a Child of God; Jesus Christ created the world for me; I can choose the right; I love my family; and I love the scriptures and know they are the word of God. These simple principles help me to live my faith every day!
