Hi I'm Erin

I`m a student, I`m a piano-plunker, I love to laugh, and I`m a Mormon.

About Me

I love how random life is. When I started college I had no idea what I wanted to study. I heard about speech therapy, and it sounded interesting enough. I found myself in the introduction class, and before I knew it I was in my second year of studying speech. I love how we are directed to what makes us happy! Family and friends are important to me, and I love spending time with them. Snowboarding is a hobby because I love the feeling of being in control and letting go at the same time. Singing and playing around on the piano is fun, especially when nobody else is listening :) When I was little I used to pull out our Andrew Lloyd Webber collection piano book and sing to my favorite musicals when nobody else was home. I still do that sometimes :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, but I know that we all come to the point where we have to choose what we really believe for ourselves. I have done that too. I have read the Book of Mormon, I have prayed, I have gone to church, and I have done my best to live what the Church teaches. I can tell you now that I am a Mormon because it is true! I know that I am a better person because I know why I am here and what my purpose is. I know it is true, and I know my life is so, so much better than it would be otherwise because I have my faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just trying to be a little better everyday. I have a long way to go, but I take it one day at a time. Our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, said that "life by a yard is hard, but by an inch it's a cinch!". I try to look at life that way, and it really is easier to take things little by little. I love how this faith is a lifestyle, and it gives me direction and focus in my life. I am currently a missionary for the Church, and it is awesome! I get to see little and big miracles all the time, and I have a front row seat to watch others changing their lives and finding true peace and joy!

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost is a great blessing in my life because it gives me comfort, teaches me what is true, and helps me know right from wrong. I believe the Book of Mormon is true because the Holy Ghost has given me a great feeling of peace and comfort when I read it. I also know that Heavenly Father knows who I am and loves me because through the Holy Ghost I have the same peaceful feelings when I pray to Him. The Holy Ghost can also warn us when something is wrong, and it can help us know who needs our help. I have experienced both of these situations in my life. I have also received blessings because friends have paid attention to the promptings (thoughts and feelings) from the Holy Ghost and come to help me when I needed a friend. Show more Show less
