Hi I'm Eric

I'm from Dixie, life's good and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a college student, and a big fan of college football and basketball. I really like running, and playing sports with my family and friends. During high school I was on the cross country and track teams and loved getting to know my teammates, and coaches. I also enjoy woodworking, I've built a bedroom set, a couple of bookcases, among other things. I love the sense of accomplishment when I've finished a piece, and to see what started as an idea become a reality. Reading is also something I like to do, whether it be to learn something, or just for entertainment.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and have gained a testimony of its truthfulness little, by little. Through in depth study of the Book of Mormon, and praying to Heavenly Father to know if it is true, I have felt the peaceful assurance of the Holy Ghost to know it is true. I have striven to live by the teachings of the Savior and his prophets, and I have seen the blessings that come from righteous living. I know that it is by faith, and through the Holy Ghost that I have come to learn that this church is true. That there is a living prophet and apostles on the Earth today, and that they speak the word of God. I am thankful for the Savior's perfect example, and his sacrifice, that by him I can return to my Heavenly Father's presence.

How I live my faith

By serving others I am able to become closer to the Savior, and my church provides me with serving opportunities. Whether it be packaging food for those in need, or mowing an elderly woman's yard there is a special feeling that comes with helping others. I am about to leave on a two year mission for my church. I will leave my friends and family and go out to share the gospel with others. I will help others to see that the gospel has been restored in it's fulness, and God's priesthood is back on the earth, and with this priesthood power families can be sealed together forever.
