Hi I'm Eric

I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. I love spending time in the outdoors and with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old. My family moved to Anchroage, Alaska when I was 6 years old and we have lived there since. Ive always loved doing things in the outdoors with my family. I enjoy hunting with my dad and brother. In high school I swam and ran track. I've earned my eagle scout. After high school I attended Brigham Young University for a year before leaving on a mission. I served the Lord for 2 years in the California Arcadia Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints offers me the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the same church that Jesus established when he was here on the earth. Through prayer that the Book of Mormon is true as well as that Joseph Smith was a prophet called of God, I have come to know that this church is true. I am currently giving 2 years of my life to the church as a missionary. I would not give up these 2 years if I did not know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of Jesus Christ as best I can. I try to serve others and strive to be a better person. I have found the best way to do this is through reading the scriptures. By reading the scriptures, expecially the Book of Mormon, we see countless examples of people who followed the example of Christ and how it blessed their lives. The Book of Mormon is one of the biggest things I have to strengthen my in what I try to do.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You can come to knw that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true through dilligent searching and pondering. God is the source of all truth and that is why we should go to him with all major quesions we have in our lives. If you dilligently search the scriptures, attend chruch meetings, and keep the commandments God will reveal the truth unto you as you ponder and pray. God loves you becuase you are his child and he will answer your question through the Spirit. Show more Show less
