Hi I'm Eric

I live in Virginia. I am a convert to the church. I'm serving as a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 25 years old, I enjoy playing guitar and like to make music and listing to new kinds of music. I love hanging out with good friends. I hike when i get the chance and just enjoy the beautiful landscape of Virginia. served as a missionary in the Mesa Arizona mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a convert to the church for 3 years. Most of my life i was not religious person. A year before i joined i became really concerned about my purpose in life. I decided to start reading in the Bible to see if i could find direction. I wanted to know what God wanted me to do and how to do it. I saw that there were so many christian churches and all had there own opinion on who or what God. It was so confusing to me because in the bible it says to be of one faith (Ephesians 4:11-15). One day i finally prayed with all my heart to know the truth and know matter what it was i would follow it. Soon after that i saw an LDS add on the internet and had a good feeling come over me and i clicked on it. It offered a free bible, just what i was looking for. Two elders showed up at my door with the bible and The Book of Mormon. What they had to share was everything i was looking for. Everything about the book and what the elders had to teach me was like an answer to my prayers. Everything made so much sense and filled that empty spot in my heart. I prayed about it and knew that is was the restored church of god on the earth. I got baptized soon after that. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought so much meaning and happiness into my life . I know that god has called a prophet today to lead his children like he did in the past and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints is the church of god here on the earth and that god has not abandoned his children in these days.

How I live my faith

I do my best i can to follow the example of Christ and live the Gospel. I wanted to serve a mission because i want to share the happiness and direction the Gospel gives me in my life. I want to do the same thing that my missionary's did for me. To help others know that they are children of our heavenly father.
