Hi I'm Erin

I'm a wife, a mother of 11 and then some, a full-time Office Manager and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born In Georgia, raised in Tennessee and moved to Washington when I was 19. I was married, divorced, bankrupt and a single parent of two boys by the time I was 26. I met my current husband and love of my life on a dating website. We have been married for 6 1/2 years and have a crazy house full of children - his, hers and ours and foster kids. My parents divorced after almost 40 years together. And the one thing I have learned is that anything worth having, is worth fighting for.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church shorly before I was born. I grew up going to church pretty regularly but did not fully understand what it means to be a Mormon until I had my own children. I wasn't going to church when I married my first husband; but after I found out I was pregnant that's all I could think about. How I wanted my children to grow up knowing they had a Father in Heaven that loves them; that families can be together forever; that not only are our prayers heard, but they are answered. I returned to church and haven't looked back since. I know that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me, that knows me and is aware of my struggles and imperfections. That knowledge brings me joy and a renewed sense of hope everyday. Being able to know that my family is forever and that I have the opportunity to always have those relationships brings me peace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving with the other women in our church. This calling allows me to do welfare visits and fellowship those that are less active or unfamiliar with our church. I have also worked in the community to organize a community garage sale where all the proceeds benefit the local school districts to buy school supplies for children in need. I try to set a good example for my children, co-workers and friends in the community.
