Hi I'm Elder Erik Fjeldsted

Lived in Bountiful my whole life, love the gospel and love my family. Also animals and outdoors, drums and rock and roll, Etc.....

About Me

I play the drum set, I just got called on a mission to Raleigh, North Carolina!! I love animals and art, I wanna do something with animals as a profession in the future. Love the outdoors. have 4 siblings, two brothers one is younger and two older sisters.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I believe in it, and I know it's what God wants me to do-live the Gospel. I have come to know that for myself from scripture study, other countless examples of those who live the gospel in my life, attending the temple, prayer, church, ect. I know that the Church is true, and that Jesus Christ restored this church through Joseph Smith, I love The Savior and am eternally grateful for His free gift of The Atonement, as well as His example, teachings, and other countless things He has given us such as this good Earth and life itself. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission right now in Raleigh, North Carolina!! So, now i feel like all I do is live my religion. Which is SUCH a blessed opportunity! The thing that motivates me most to BE a missionary and represent Jesus Christ (the best I can) is bringing other souls to Christ and sharing with them the joy I have felt through the gospel. I am very very honored and blessed to be a tool in The Lord's hand and my mission has been and will be a perfect opportunity to be that. I just hope and pray I can be that for The Lord!

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Elder Erik Fjeldsted
No, but we respect him and study his teachings just like any other prophet. God and Jesus Christ are truly the Beings who we worship, also they are really the ones who restored and established The Gospel once again on the Earth, Joseph Smith was simply the very capable, continually learning tool of The Lord. He wasn't perfect, but he was chosen of The Lord. Show more Show less
