Hi I'm Erin

I'm a music lover. Rock climber. Camp counselor. College Student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a current college student just struggling to make it through school. I love music, photography, rock climbing, hiking and working with kids. During the school year I attend a university and during the summer I work at a summer camp where I am a counselor and help to teach rock climbing and high ropes. I'm currently majoring in elementary education because my dream is to become an elementary school teach and one day open a summer camp for underprivileged children.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into a Mormon family, continuing with my religion was completely and totally my own decision. In fact, I could not imagine my life without it. I am the happiest that I could ever be with my life, and when people ask me why, I tell them it is because of my faith and beliefs. This church and gospel has given me the knowledge and strength to carry on when I feel life there is nobody who could possibly know what I am going through. In the past year in particular I have been able to strengthen my faith. I moved out of my home, away from my family, over two thousands miles away, where I knew ABSOLUTELY nobody, and yet never once did I feel alone. I have learned that even when it seems that there is nobody who could possibly know what we are going through, or when we feel insignificant, there is someone who knows and who cares. Like I said before, I am not Mormon because my family is. I am not Mormon because it is a trend. I am a Mormon because through this church I have come closer to Christ and become happier than I could ever hope to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by starting every morning with a fervent prayer to God and Jesus Christ. I ask them for the strength I need to get through the day. Without this simple prayer every morning, I would not make it through the day. I then try to go throughout the day as a disciple of Jesus Christ-
