Hi I'm Erin.

I am an adventure seeker, I am a guest speaker for high school students, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a native to Arizona and come from a non member family. My parents split when I was only 3-years-old and spent my time going back and forth. I eventually grew up and graduated from high school and then college. Over the past couple of years, I have been able to mature and find who I really am. I love being outdoors, having adventures, and exploring my surroundings. I am a very open individual who is always excited about trying new hobbies. Some of my current hobbies include snowboarding, photography, and cooking/hosting parties or gatherings.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I was raised Christian - Non Denominational. During my junior year in high school, I decided that religion wasn't for me. During college, I researched a couple different religions (Evangelistic and Agnostic). I began to travel down a very dark path. I lost sight of any good in life. In my lowest of low, I met an individual who was a Mormon. I believed I could drag him away from the gospel and bring him into my dark lifestyle. In the end, I became interested and wanted to understand why he was choosing to dedicate two years of his life to this religion (going on a mission). As I began to attend church with him, I felt the sweet spirit testify of the truthfulness of the gospel. Unfortunately, I became blinded and veered off the path and then returned a year later to be baptized. During that year between first visiting and being baptized, I never lost the knowledge that this is the true gospel on Earth today. I simply was blinded by the worldly happenings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a daily basis. My faith is not a Sunday type deal. It is the exact opposite. My faith is a lifestyle that I have chosen for myself. Over the past 4 years, I have served in different callings in wards. I know that each calling I have received has helped me grow my faith in knowing that God does truly place us where our talents can be best used or to help us progress in this life. One calling that has truly blessed my life and has helped me grow my testimony is visiting teaching. Being able to visit different sisters in the ward allows me to understand their needs, struggles, and blessings. Each individual in the world is different from another and being able to see that God cares about each and every one of his children has been such a huge stepping stone to my faith today.
