Hi I'm Eric

I'm a husband and father of 4 little girls. I've been part of this church my entire life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married and have four beautiful little girls. I grew up in the church and served a mission in Budapest, Hungary. I began my working career as a diesel mechanic waiting until I had all four children before I went to college. I recently finished my undergraduate degree in Business Management and currently work for a diesel engine manufacturer in Montana. My family is my life and most of my "spare" time is spent with them. I'm preparing to enroll at Montana State University in Billings to pursue a 2nd Bachelors degree in Finance.

Why I am a Mormon

True, I grew up in the church. My parents were converted and joined when I was too young to remember and raised me as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I've never belonged to a different faither, I've never pursued a different faith, I've always been a part of this one. That being said I remain a member by choice, not by habit because of my own personal, spiritual experiences which have shown me that this is the path God wants me to follow. For this same reason I am raising my family in the church to prepare them for the time when they need to make the same personal choice about their own faith. I believe with all my heart that what I believe is right and true.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the 12 and 13 year old Sunday school class. I find a lot of joy in teaching and generally learn more from the lessons than the rest of my students do. A vast majority of my callings within the church have involved teaching children or youth. This seems to be an area I shine and really enjoy.
