Hi I'm Erika

I love music, I love sunshine, I love my husband and my five children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a homemaker in my 40's with an active family. Keeping up with them takes up most of my time! I try to stay active by exercising daily. I feel like being healthy increases my quality of life. I'm also a teacher. I taught in public school for three years (high school English, yearbook, history) and I currently teach in an Alternative Education program that allows me to work from home. I love music. I play and teach piano and I enjoy singing. When my siblings and my Mom and I get together, we love to sing in four-part harmony around the piano, and we sound good! Now my children, my husband, and I are working on singing in harmony together.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I knew then, as I know now, that it is the true church. I had some periods of searching in my youth, but I found that what I had always known really was true. God is in our lives and he loves us. He would not leave us without guidance, and I rely on that guidance to work through my problems and adversity. I feel great peace in knowing Jesus and God, and in being able to be totally clean and honest. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Currently I teach Sunday School to teens aged 16-18. I love it! Teaching the gospel makes me happy, and I learn so much as I prepare to teach, and also from the kids I teach. I have had many callings over the course of my lifetime and have learned and grown from all of them. What a blessing it is that Heavenly Father allows us to have callings and to serve each other!

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Erika
Mormon women are strong, caring, involved, and intelligent. Yes, we believe that men and women are equal. We have different but equally important roles. Show more Show less
