Hi I'm Eryn

I am on my LDS mission to Taichong, Taiwan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished up my second year in the Honors program at my college and I loved it! But right now I am currently serving my mission. I come from a divorced family when I was four and I love both my families! I am considered a shy extrovert and I pretty much have an interest in almost anything. Even though I may not excel in everything, I will give my best effort to enjoy whatever it is that I am focused on at that time. In fact, I learned five instruments in High School and I am currently working on learning the guitar. I like to sing. I run. I enjoy just about any sport. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors-as a canyoneering enthusiast, but if it is linked to the outdoors-camping, fishing, shooting, skiing, you name it, I'm guaranteed to have an interest in it. I speak basic Mandarin Chinese and (sign) American Sign Language and I literally have a bucket list and many goals I wish to accomplish one day. I was a Sterling Scholar, and I love to give service. I am constantly inspired by every little thing that others do. I am a quotes kind of person, and one of my favorite quotes is, "The trick is to enjoy life. Don't wish away your days waiting for better ones ahead." by Majorie Pay Hinckley. In fact, I have tons of inspirational quotes peppering my wall on post-it notes. I can't wait to enjoy life's adventures for me, and I hope to one day help others have as many experiences or opportunities in life as I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I Know this Gospel is True. For my story, I grew up being a half-sie. My parents divorced. My Dad was the one who went to church, but I grew up with my Mother. I would attend church every other weekend so I wasn't a very strong member. When I was young, I remember pouring over a picture book that described all the stories found in the scriptures-this was one of my favorite books. But time passed, and I was still not that strong. I took all the tender mercies and miracles in my life for granted-I just couldn't see them, but nevertheless, I was a "good girl". Finally, when I had reached the end of my High School years, I found a part of my testimony and ran with it. I was at a very big decision point in my life, and I needed an answer-things started to fall into place when I started reading the scriptures, praying, and putting my faith to work. I remember that getting my patriarchal blessing was a real turning point for me, and moving into my Dad's house. I was and always have been guided to where my Heavenly Father needs me to be. So, when I moved out of the house to go to college I knew that I was on the right path, but was very careful to not stray. I made commitments and promises to always go to church-from there its just been an uphill battle, and I have been growing stronger ever since. I am now to the point where I am on my mission. My eyes are finally open to all the wonders of this gospel, and I know who I am, where I belong, and why I am a Mormon.
