Hi I'm Erin

I'm a mother of 3 children, studied economics, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, hiking, and biking. I love being outdoors and live by the water. I have three children whom I adore. I love spending time with them because I feel that their memories of our time and learning shared together will make that effort lasting. I earned degrees in Economics.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and it changed my life and gave me strength. I felt of my Savior's love and know this is His church.

How I live my faith

I love to share the gospel with others and served an 18 month proselyting mission, and was blessed to be sent to Madrid, Spain, and learn Spanish. I find reading scripture, praying, and writing in a journal, to be essential. I seek to follow what God asks, and love donating funds to the church to help others because they do a great job of using it wisely. I try to uplift others by visiting church members with my visiting teaching companion. I hope that I teach my family about Jesus and that they can turn to Him, and other important principles, to my children, as well as how to interact with others.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Erin
We believe God is a person much like us, except perfect and immortal. He has a body. He sends us His Spirit to guide us, inspire us, and help remind us of the divinity that we have within us as His children, and of His love. He desires that we return to live with Him after this life by choosing to follow Jesus Christ's example. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Erin
Its when you realize something is true. The evidence stacks up. It may be evidence of repeated miracles, or an enlightened understanding that something makes sense and is good, or just feeling a connection with the Savior and a surety He exists and is working in our lives. Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

Erin
Joseph Smith was a young American boy of 14 who was criticized for saying he saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in answer to a heartfelt prayer he had on the subject of contradictory religion. He was tutored by them, as well as angels (resurrected prophets and apostles from the Old and New Testament), and the Holy Ghost, in forming Christ's Latter-day church (isn't that the way it should be, under divine guidance?) and many additional teachings.
