Hi I'm Erica Welch

I am half Japanese, half American, I am an artist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served in the Japan Sapporo mission. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho and I am studying Art Education. I lived in Kaysville and Ogden Utah, Texas, Japan, India, and Florida.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a confirmation that this is God's church on the earth today. I feel His love and guidance as I live my faith everyday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by studying the teachings and gospel of Jesus Christ, attending church, and by seeking opportunities to serve people around me.

What is being a Mormon like?

Erica Welch
I think being a Mormon is really fun. It sounds weird because many people know Mormons as the people who have a lot of restrictions and rules, but I have learned that the "restrictions" and "rules" have protected me and brought me closer to God. Show more Show less
