Hi I'm Erich

I am Swiss. I love life and enjoy making people laugh. I am a Mormon.

About Me

There is never enough time to do all the things I love to do. Often I start my day with some sports. It is so much fun to be physically active. I enjoy challenging myself and pushing myself to the limit. But the quiet moments have their value in my life. Playing the piano or singing can balance the energetic nature. It helps me to reflect on my life and helps me to live more fully.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a very critical spirit. Early in school we have been taught to question everything. Sometimes I could not find all the answers to my questions about the Gospel and the church. In moments of doubt I asked myself this: If it were not true, what would I miss? Nothing other than maybe a some hours at church! The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches me how to live to be happy here on earth and after this life. It helps me to become a better person and to be a better friend, husband and citizen and so much more. Over the years I have received many confirmations through the Holy Spirit that there is a Heavenly Father who loves me, that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and that His church is on the earth again.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church. From a very early age I was involved in playing an active role in my ward. Even though I was nervous when I was asked to speak at church, give a class or organize an activity I always felt satisfaction and joy. Helping other people on their journey through life brings a joy that can otherwise not be found. Especially the time with the Young Men has been most rewarding. Accompanying them during the important age from 12 to 18 has taught me so much. Often I have been amazed of who they became and how capable and strong they are. Right now I am teaching various groups in many different wards. I am still nervous sometimes but more because I want to make a difference.
