Hi I'm Erin Hendricks

I am a lover of family, sunshine, physical activity, and good food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Northern California with my three sisters. I attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for my bachelor's degree in Exercise Science and my master's degree in Public Health. I met my husband there and we were married almost four years ago. I recently became a mother last year and I now have an amazing respect for mothers everywhere and the sacrifices they make for their children. I love my husband, little boy, and my family so much. I love to exercise and spend time with those I love. I love seeing new places and experiencing new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God lives and loves each of us perfectly. I know that God restored His true gospel on the earth today through the prophet Joseph Smith. I believe in personal revelation - that I have the ability to pray and receive answers and guidance in my life. I am so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ and His Atonement he performed in my behalf. His perfect life and sacrifice helps me strive to be my best self each day, as well as to get down on my knees each night asking for forgiveness and help for the next day. I love being Mormon, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gives me the perspective and knowledge on how to be happy and how to find peace in my life.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church by working with girls ages ten and eleven. We have activities every other week to teach them new things and also just to have fun. I also help plan monthly activities for women eighteen and older. I love planning and attending these events because they allow me to make new friends, learn new skills, and serve others.
