Hi I'm Erin

I grew up home schooled, teaching myself, by working hard I achieved a bachelors. I am smart, I am happy, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent college graduate who, like so many, is striving to apply my education to help my community. I have been married for four years and I strive everyday to make my marriage better each day, sometimes it is hard, sometimes I wish for what I think I want, instead of being grateful for what I've have. Mine is a happy marriage because when we have hard times I don't give up, I work through it like a team, a forever partnership.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the Lord's Church, his knowledge, wisdom and love. Everyday that I read the scriptures, whether from the Bible, Book or Mormon, or the current issue of the Ensign, It is like walking with the Lord, it's like He is there with His arm around me lovingly teaching me what I can do to improve in my life, or reminding me of my divine worth, or simply just giving me a hug telling me that He knows what I am going through and that He will never leave me. The spirit of the Holy Ghost is real and because I was baptized by His proper authority I can have the Holy Ghost as my constant companion and teacher. I would me miserable without the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in my life.

How I live my faith

When I was little I just wanted to fit in, I wanted to be smart like others. I came to realize I am smart, I am cool like others, because I am unique, I am me, that is what makes me cool. I now walk among my friends, family, and peers being me, cracking jokes, and others laugh, because I'm just crazy, funny, caring Erin. You don't have to be someone else, you were sent to this earth as you, that's what God, your Father in Heaven wants you to be, that's how He made you. It took me along time to realize that, a long time to realize I don't have to be depressed because I'm not like them, but to be happy because I'm me, and I'm pretty special. I live what I believe by being vocal about how I feel about others. So many of us think 'wow, that girl it beautiful' but do we tell them? not usually. I have a big belief that God love me, all of us too, and that He wants us to love each other. So I tell people what they need and deserve to hear, "you are beautiful", " you really are good at doing that", and most importantly " I know what you feel, I care about you, and I know that God cares about you and what you are going through". Everyone deserves to be loved, Everyone.
