Hi I'm Eric

I'm a college student. I love playing sports and being outdoors. I like to sing and dance. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an extremely active person. I love playing sports, either competetively or recreationally. I do all sorts of outdoor activities with my family like hiking, skiing, boating, and just having a good time. One of my favorite sports is tennis. I really like the constant struggle between the opponent and myself, and figuring out how to keep getting the ball over the net just one more time. I love being able to see myself improve in all areas of the game, and feeling success after leaving my best game on the court. I always make sure to give 100%, so whether I win or lose, I can feel good about what I've done. I think that's how we should live life. If you are going to do something, do it well. That helps me stay happy. Knowing that I've done all I can

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my entire life. My family is all involved wherever they are at in the church, and seeing them get involved gives me really good examples to follow. I stay in the church because of the wonderful spirit and comfort I feel there. I have good friends in the gospel who help me get excited to go to all my activities in the church. But as I think about why I am a Mormon, the most powerful contributor to my faith is the multitude of small experiences I have had with the gospel. I continually feel the Holy Ghost as I follow the teachings specifically in the Mormon Church. I have had so many questions answered for me that it's hard to doubt my faith. And the happiness I find from Church activities is undeniable.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the church my entire life, the church has become a big part of my daily and weekly habits. Members of our church are continually encouraged by our leaders to read the scriptures and pray to God daily, as well as attend our church services every Sunday. I do each of these and cannot doubt the blessings that come from them. The more I live my religion, the happier I get. As I live my religion around my friends who aren't of my faith, they notice the things that I do (and don't do). Even though they may not agree with my religion, they support my decisions, and make sure that everyone around me knows I'm Mormon, and I don't lie, swear, or do drugs or alcohol. As I live my faith, those around me support me and help me live it the best that I can.
