Hi I'm Eric

I live in Mil-town and I'm still a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I am a true-blue (or red? or green and gold?) Wisconsin fan. Tailgating, cold weather, fishing, the whole gambit. In addition, I am also a licensed ham radio operator and enjoy carving my own boomerangs. I am actively attending a university with the hopes to eventually get a career building turbines for GE or Pratt and Whitney.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon in Wisconsin isn't always the easiest thing to do, especially in Milwaukee, the town of festivals. However, I was raised by a family that brought me up with strong Christian values such as self-respect. My own testimony, however first sprouted when my sister succumbed to complications due to bone-marrow transplant in an effort to end her 9-month battle with neuroblastoma. She hadn't been baptized yet, and the knowledge that we would be a family forever helped to console our family. My testimony only continued to grow as I saw the blessings that come from following Christ and his teachings. Ultimately, I took the Lord up on his promise to give all who earnestly seek that knowledge that they desire. True to His word, I received an affirmation that the Book of Mormon is indeed the word of the Lord to be used with those precious things contained in the Bible. I also know that the heavens were never closed and evidence of this is the fact that God has reached out in love and given us another prophet to guide us in these increasingly-turbulent times.

How I live my faith

Like most midwesterners, we all get along by getting along. I'm not super preachy. I try not to be 'holier-than-thou.' I, just like everyone else, have my own imperfections that I am trying to overcome. I just don't drink with the solace that I'll be able to remember last-night's party. I don't sleep around knowing that my life will be so much easier without the emotional baggage and worries of possibly starting something that I'm not prepared to continue. I go to church with the assurance that the Brewers and the Packers will win anyways. And besides, it's not about me anyways. It's about getting back to the loving God that has given me so much to begin with.
