Hi I'm Eric

My roots are in southeast Idaho but I'm now in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a school psychologist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life is rather simple. I enjoy spending time with my family and being home. I try to stay active by playing basketball, something I've enjoyed for many years. Being a husband to a beautiful wife and having four children provides blessings and fulfillment. And who ever thought a granddaughter could be so much fun! Life is very good to me. Work as a school psychologist has provided challenges, rewards, and many opportunities over the past 27 years. My life is very full with work, family, home, and church. An occasional crossword puzzle or anacrostic is a good way to relax.

Why I am a Mormon

As a life-long member of the Church, I can only say that the beliefs that sustain my church membership and devotion to living according to Christ's teachings have been strong from my youth on and continue to bless my life. These beliefs have continued to be strengthened through church attendance, study, and spiritual experiences that verify the truth of The Church of Jesus Christ. I find great peace, happiness, and comfort through my church membership and the feelings it provides me. My life has been continuously blessed because of my church membership.

How I live my faith

As I open my heart to spiritual experiences and opportunities, I can feel of God's love for me, His direction in my life, and how He has led me along the path I am now following. As I allow this spiritual influence in my life, I have seen over and over again the blessings of God in my personal life and that of my family. Day-to-day living of the principles and truths taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has impacted me in untold ways. It influences me to be a kinder person, a more dedicated worker, a more involved father, and a more devoted husband. I can't think of a any aspects of my life that haven't been improved because of my faith. These are truths that I can't deny. They are invaluable in my life and I hope to never stray from them.
