Hi I'm Aaroch (Eric) Ray

i was born and raised in Washington. I am the oldest of 5 and one foster brother, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

the saying i live by is a "bad day of fishing or hunting is better then a good day at work". the hunting i do is deer and duck hunting, and i fish any thing that is in season. My other past time is baseball i pitched for varsity as a starting pitcher. I am going on a Mission on to Santa Rosa California. i had to raise the money my self and part of that was tendering for Salmon in Alaska in Bristol Bay and Later southeast Alaska Wrangell Area. and i have been working at a berry prepossessing plant.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the true church of Jesus Christ and the one that will lead me down the right path to return to my Father in Heaven . Being a Mormon in High School proved to be tough. Even by those who were a different faith I was often ridiculed for my beliefs and standards. When I would be come discouraged and wonder if it was all worth it, I would go home and find a soft place to land with my family. My parents gave me a place to start with my testimony and taught me how to know if I had one for myself. They also said it was my responsibility to know for myself. I do know the Christ Gospel was restored to the earth through Joseph Smith JR. and that is way I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

Like so many others I go to church every Sunday and do my best to read my scriptures. Integrity is very important to me and living the way I believe the lord would want me to live my life. Even though it is hard sometimes, I find living and having the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life just makes my day better.
