Hi I'm erica

I am a wife & mother of 4. I play volleyball, softball & piano. I love college football. I read thriller books. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an identical triplet. I love sports, but dislike aerobics. I have ran a 10K and did a sprint triathalon. I went on a study abroad program to Spain and graduated with a spanish teaching degree. I am married and now stay home with my children. I love to read thriller and adventure books and write too. I love volleyball and softball. I am an ASU, BYU and BSU football fan. I love music and play the piano and sing. I enjoy musicals and recently saw Les Miserables with my husband. Our family likes to camp and go to the lake for vacation. We love the beach and amusement parks. We LOVE to have fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church and was baptised at the age of eight. I have read the book of Mormon and know that it's true. I have felt the spirit many times affirming my testimony of Jesus Christ and this Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as the true church. There are many members of my family who do not live the standards of the gospel and many who do. I have seen the wonderful blessings of choosing a virtuous life. I have been blessed and my children have been blessed and I feel the comfort of prayer everyday in my life. This gospel fills a void that would otherwise not be filled. I would encourage anyone to find the truth of the gospel for themselves and recieve of the blessing I feel daily.

How I live my faith

I am an active member in my ward and have served in many different capacities. Our church offers a great youth program which I have frequently been a part of, first as a youth, then as a leader. I have coached church softball and volleyball and been a leader at Girls camp. I have played the piano for the children in our ward and I have been the music leader, teaching new songs with games and activities to help the children remember the words and notes. I teach dynamics and feeling the spirit through song. Also, I have taught Art Masterpiece in my daughter's classroom for several years, while I don't know a lot about art, I enjoy learning along with the children. I participate in league volleyball and softball as often as possible. I am grateful for these opportunities to learn and grow and to continue to develop the talents that Heavenly Father gave me.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

erica
The church has millions of members, to help with organization and to fill the needs of everyone the church is organized into areas. Areas are called regions and within those are Stakes and several wards make up a stake. When there are not enough people to constitute a ward, a branch is formed. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

erica
God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. God knew we needed prophets to guide us and that has not changed. We still need to know God's will for us and to recieve instruction from inspired men of God. I believe that Thomas S Monson is a Prophet of God and leads His church today. Show more Show less
