Hi I'm William Erickson

I love my family! I love my country! I love hotrods! I love to ski, mountain bike and coach baseball. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My passion is my family. I enjoy spending time with them camping, traveling, skiing and using our water crafts. I enjoy working with cars and hot rods. I love my country. I am a professional Soldier for my career. I have been a lot of places and seen many things. I enjoy playing, coaching and watching baseball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe the Book of Mormon was inspired by God and translated by his prophet Joseph Smith. Besides my belief in the Book of Mormon I challenge anyone to look at the teachings and principles of the LDS leaders and try to find fault in what they say! Provident living is the best way to happiness, don't cheat your neighbor and live the Word of Wisdom for a happier healthier life. If there is nothing else to the church than these basic principles, it's a pretty good frame work to guide and live your life. But once you follow the gospel fully you will find the peace and joy that comes from God.

How I live my faith

I was born in Utah and brought up LDS. I did not go on a mission. I spent 16 years away from the church inactive. I have been back for over three years now. I went inactive because I was not living the gospel fully and expected God to come to me the rest of the way. It does not work that way. I can testify to you if you give yourself to the gospel, pay your full tithing, go to church and be involved you will enjoy a peace and joy unlike anything else in this world. I have experienced both ways and my life now is the best it has ever been. There are still hard times and bad things will still happen, but the gospel gives us a way to return to him and be with our families forever.
