Hi I'm Erin

I'm a high school drop out, and a college graduate. I'm a journalist and I want to study the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in journalism. Currently I'm on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My favorite time of the year is when my family and I will get all together and stay up all night playing games. Food is a passion for me, but so is watching football, hockey and demolition derbys.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I've had way to many answers to prayers that I can't deny the truthfulness that this message has to offer. I've been able to discover through prayer and studying the scriptures that God truely does have a plan just for me and that He knows me and every one of us individually. I think the most convincing thing to me has been the power of Priesthood blessings. When my dad, my brother and other Priesthood holders have given me a blessing I knew it was counsel given from God. As I've followed that counsel, even though most of the time it wasn't in my plans I've come to know it was the better plan for me. God knows us all and loves us so much! I'm also a member because the Holy Spirit has witnessed to me that The Book of Mormon, along with The Bible is the word of God. I've found so much peace when I read The Book of Mormon and I feel at home no matter where I read it. I love that I can apply my life and receive guidance when I read these stories. I'm able to know and understand more fully about Christ's gospel that He's established not just for the entire world.

How I live my faith

I'm currently on an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While I've been on my mission I've been told many times that I seem really happy and it's true, I couldn't be happier. I've found for myself that I am so happy when I share with others the things that I believe in and why I live my life the way I do.
