Hi I'm Erica.

I'm your average girl. Sound boring? It's not! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm your average girl. Sound boring? Not really! I love life and all of the opportunities that we get to grow and learn. I work as a Medicare/BlueCross biller for our local hospital.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. I learned at a young age that following the commandments and listening to the Holy Ghost were important. I didn't understand how important they really were until I move out. I made some not so great decisions. After not having the Holy Ghost with me I felt lost and confused. I started doing all the things that I had been taught my whole life. I gained a huge love and testimony of our elder brother Jesus Christ. Along with our Heavenly Father he wants the best for us. They are there to guide and support us. Again I made some stupid mistakes. This time around I found some great friends. They encouraged me to go to church. They made the gospel fun and easy to live. Because they were there to lean on I have found my footing. I have my own testimony. I know Jesus Christ is our elder brother. I know that he is leading this church. I am so grateful for the sacrifice he made in each and every one of our behalf. I know he will love and forgive us if we come to him with a broken heart and a contrite spirit.

How I live my faith

I am the Female Young Single Adult Representative in my stake. I am also on the institute council. I attend institute twice a week. I try to attend all of my meetings on Sunday. I have awesome friends who will let me share my testimony with them. They grow and I grow together.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Christ has taught that everyone needs to be baptized. Many people aren't baptized while they are on the earth. We have proxies perform baptisms for those who have passed on so they can have the same opportunities as those who were baptized while alive. They can choose either to accept or decline this.
