Hi I'm Eric

I enjoy outdoor activities, laughing with my friends and being with my family. I am a mormon.

About Me

I come from a large family of 11 including myself. When I was growing up i always enjoys sports and spending time with my friends. I am currently serving a mission in Canada and i am loving it. If anyone were to ask me if it were worth it i would say "YES!" It is a privilege to be spending all of my time trying to grow closer to the Lord. I feel like it is God who is serving me by allowing me to serve a mission, not me serving Him. Since i have been on my mission my knowledge has grown and my faith has improved. I look forward to spending the rest of my life striving to become more like Jesus Christ. "And see that all these things are done in wisdom and order; for it is not requisite that a man should run faster than he has strength. And again, it is expedient that he should be diligent, that thereby he might win the prize; therefore all things must be done in order." Mosiah 4:27

Why I am a Mormon

because I believe that this is the only true church on the earth. This church actually teaches me how to make it back to live with my Father in Heaven. I believe that the Book of Mormon is true and because of that belief i know that Joseph Smith is a prophet called of God to restore Christs church. I love feeling Gods love for me. I feel it when i do what is right. I feel it when i spend time learning of Christ. I feel it when I say "I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to love every one that i meet. Charity is the pure love of christ and anyone who strives to grow in this attribute will find more happiness than they have ever enjoyed. I have personally tried to apply this principle and it has made me so much more happy. Mistakes are made but every day I have the opprotunity to exercise the cleansing power of the atonement in my life. Learning to love the people that i meet every day has helped me feel Christ love for me. It has been a great blessing in my life.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Prayer is one of the greatest rescources that we have to help us grow our relationship with our Father in Heaven. I have noticed that when prayer is combined with fasting that relationship increases in strength. Fasting is a way that us and individuals can put our spirits in control of our bodies and sacrifice the physical for something of a more spiritual nature. Show more Show less
