Hi I'm Eric

I live in Mesa, AZ. I am a hydraulic engineer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 30 years old. I am a hydraulic engineer. I design hydraulic systems for anything from tractors to roller coasters to production machines. I am a car enthusiast, especially rat rods. I am getting married on March 24th to the women of my dreams. I am excited to start my own family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being Mormon. Got baptized, went through the motions just like every Mormon kid does. Growing up I did not consider myself Mormon. I would go to other churches with my friends but for some reason or another I would always go back to the Mormon church. I went on a mission to Texas Houston East Mission but even I went on a mission for the Mormon church. I still did not know if the church was true. I came back from my mission. Served faithfully in the church but still was not fully converted. Then i fell away from the church started doing things i knew then my savior Jesus Christ would not approve of. I started feeling like I was missing something. Like there was a whole in my heart. I decided to really know for sure if the book of Mormon was true or not. There was only one person I knew that would not lie to me and that was my father in heaven. I prayed to see if it was true. I found out that it was and a peace came over me that i never felt before. I know that the book of Mormon is true and because its true that means that Jesus is the Christ the savior of all mankind and Joseph Smith was in fact a true prophet of God. The restoration of the authority of god is on the earth again. So, in a nutshell. I am a Mormon because I know the church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. The most important way i live my faith is by setting an example that Jesus has set for us to follow. Try not to judge others and help others as much as possible. I also pay a tithe to help those in need. I serve my heavenly father in any way i can.
