Hi I'm Eric Scott Smith

I always try to smile and make others around me happy. I always try to do the best I can. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just an average, everyday person trying to make it in this world. I like to meet new people even though sometimes I can be rather shy. I warm up to others pretty easily. I hope to be a Physical Therapist someday. Im currently studying at Brigham Young University- Idaho. My current major is Excersize Physiology. Im also taking a variety of other classes including Spanish Literature and Basketball. I enjoy playing sports but lack the handicoordination that most have. I always try to smile and do my best.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and went throughout my childhood to the meetings with my family and it was something that I grew up with. A lot of people are mistaken when they say that Mormons are "brainwashed" from birth. I sometimes felt rebelious and didnt want to go to church because I felt like it was my parent's religion and not my own. I decided to find out for myself. I decided that I would try and recieve a personal witness as everyone always talked about. I decided to read the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. I was going through rough times and the Book of Mormon always gave me the comfort and advise I needed for that particular trial or moment and I found peace. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because of the witness I have recieved and the peace and happiness I have felt. Were it not from God, I wouldnt have felt such things.

How I live my faith

I try to feflect the things that I learn in my daily life. I attend church on sundays and I am active in the activities as well. I try to always apply what I learn so that I can get the best out of life and help others around me as well. I realize that the only way to recieve true happiness is by doing the will of the One who made us. I try to be like His Son, Jesus Christ, the greates example to all of us.
