Hi I'm Eric Thoreson

I love sports! I play college football. I love the NY Yankees, skiing, family, and being with my loved ones. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports! I play football at Southern Utah University as a QB/WR. This means I attend college there. I love it. I am a die hard Yankees fan. I have been all my life. I have been skiing since I've been 15 months old so I am an expert skier. I used to race competitively and I did really well. I have a wonderful loving family. My brother is my best friend. I also have a supportive loving girlfriend that I love dearly. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. That's me!!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I always have had a testimony of the truthfulness of this church. My family and my friends are all really good examples in my life. My dad especially, him being a convert. My brother too; he went on a mission to Australia and he has inspired me to serve a mission. I am serving in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Spanish speaking mission. I know that The Book of Mormon is true. It is the word of God. It has helped me with my testimony and it has helped people close around me with theirs. I know that this is the one true church on this earth and it forever will be. I know if others read and pray about this book, they will also come to know the truth of it and the truth of the Church of Jesus Christ. I know families can be together forever and live in eternal joy with each other. Christ lives. He suffered and died for us so we can one day become like Him.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I share my testimony with as many as I can including my family, friends, and loved ones. I attend church every Sunday and I participate in recreational activities in my ward. I also teach as many people as I can to help them come unto Christ. Most of all, I try to be an example of Jesus Christ in my daily life.
