Hi I'm Eric

I'm a husband. I'm a father. I love my family. I enjoy serving others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and three children are the center of my universe! With a busy life, I try to take every opportunity to be with my family. I am a citizen of the world. So far, I have traveled to 15 countries outside the USA. During my travels, I decided that spoons and mugs were not interesting enough, so I started collecting a doll from each country I visited. The dolls have become a fun item to share with my family upon my return. They help my children learn about different cultures around the world. Outside of "collecting dolls", my wife would agree that I am pretty regular guy. I love talking about sports, politics and the economy. Also, I know just enough about computers, auto mechanics, plumbing and construction work to get myself in trouble. I have learned the hard way to always back up my computer before messing with the registry, never tear apart my steering wheel to fix a blinker and unplug the vacuum from the wall before I start taking it apart.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because the church has moral standards and family values that are the standard for all the world. I enjoy being part of a worldwide church that is spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the world. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I love to serve others. The Savior served others and within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints there are many opportunities to serve. I am member because the leaders of the church exemplify the life of our Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through serving others. Our Savior Jesus Christ sacrificed his life for us; the least I can do is provide a little service to others. As a family we participate in a small Hispanic congregation. I try to help people feel welcome when they are at church. In addition to greeting others, I try to show compassion towards everyone who I come in contact with.
