Hi I'm Erin

My hometown is Southern Alberta. I aim to be a science teacher. I'm LDS.

About Me

I like to sing and paint. If I said I loved running, I guess I would be half lying, but I do run nonetheless. I like Working as a cashier at Safeway, I get energy from being around and talking to people. I am going to university to pursue a degree in science and teaching. I am the oldest sister in the family (there's just us two sisters) and I love my mom and dad, who tell me I can stay at home for as long as I'm going to school. I find much joy in admiring the clouds and I love windy days. I love the smell of rain and the feeling of a warm car on a sunny day. Lastly, I love freshly fallen snow.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the day I was born (both of my parents are LDS). But I truly became LDS when I decided I would attend church more often. As I grew through my teenage years I found myself become happier and less restless. Why am I a Mormon? Because I know that this is Christ's Church in all of it's fullness. It is indeed led by a living prophet, currently President Thomas S. Monson. Because I know that if I die, all is not lost, there is a way I can be with my family again. Because everything I learn is familiar to my soul. There is no way I can doubt that God exists and that he know me and loves me perfectly. I am a Mormon because I have received a witness from the Holy Ghost as an answer to my prayers that this church is true, that the Book of Mormon is true word of God, that Jesus Christ will come again. So each day I live will be a day I prepare myself to be in His presence again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by smiling when I'm too tired, and refraining from talking about the faults of my co-workers or family. I live my faith by attending church each sunday when I'd rather sleep-in. I live my faith by paying 10% of all my increases in income. I live my faith by not swearing or wearing clothing that might show my shoulders or dips too low on my chest. I live my faith by reading at least one verse of scriptures each day. I live my faith by accepting to substitute for other teachers who can't teach their Sunday School class that week. I live my faith by having the courage to tell other people why being LDS makes me happy. Lastly, I live my faith by having more forgiveness and patience for those who treat me unkindly.
