Hi I'm Erick

I grew up in Los Angeles. I'm a husband, a father and I work for a large automotive manufacturer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am Erick. I'm a husband and father of four; born and raised in Los Angeles. I love the beach, love the mountains, love cars, and I love my Dodgers. The Gospel's amazing. It makes me a better husband, and a better father and a better man. I enjoy fixing things and wrenching on my old Mustang. I love to spend time with my kids and my wife, especially when we can do something outdoors. One of the things I love most about the gospel is the truth it teaches me concerning my family's potential, and what we can become together - not just now, but forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to have the gospel taught to me from my youth. I am still active in my faith because living it makes me a better son, a better husband, a better dad ... just a better person. The way I gained a witness that the Gospel is true was by praying to my Heavenly Father with specific questions, and getting unmistakable promptings that it is true.

How I live my faith

We're all imperfect and need help from those who love us. I feel I'm most in tune with my Heavenly Father's will when I'm serving others. I feel I'm at my best as a father when I'm teaching my kids to follow Jesus' example, and living in a way that also serves as a Christ-like example.
