Hi I'm Eric

I grew up in Arizona. I'm a realtor. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an extremely competitive individual who loves to play sports. I've played basketball, football, and have also wrestled. So just about any sport is fun to me. Theatre is another awesome hobby of mine, especially improv comedy. Coming up with humor on the spot is the best. Before I became a Realtor, I worked at a laser tag arena. Half of why I worked there was just for the free laser tag. I took the classes over the summer, passed the exams, and became a Realtor my senior year of high school. Helping clients purchase their home is fulfilling to me. Business is my major in college right now and has always been interesting to me. I see myself as a businessman and look forward to growing my business as I grow into an old man. My favorite dessert is blue bell ice cream. The strawberry tastes amazing and is pretty close to homemade. Fast sports cars are where my heart lies when it comes to transportation. I plan on buying a corvette as soon as I can afford one. I am going on my mission soon so I better warm up to bikes a little bit though. Backpacking is another hobby of mine. I have been on an epic 50 mile backpacking trip. One of the most incredible feelings is to be miles away from the nearest road or person for that matter, and be in nature. These are just a few of my hobbies and little bit about myself.

Why I am a Mormon

It all comes down to my Testimony. I know the gospel is true and it brings me happiness. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet and that he restored the gospel to the earth. I know the power of the priestood is real and that we have the authority to act in Christ's name. I know Christ lives and he suffered for our sins. Through his atonement we can repent of our sins to return to live with our Father in Heaven again. I know Thomas S. Monson is the prophet here on the earth today and that he recieves revelation to direct the church. I know miracles happen in today's world. I know Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us. More than anything, I know if we pray, Heavenly Father will make these things known unto us.

How I live my faith

I am a ward missionary for my church, so I have the opportunity to meet lots of great people that are interested in learning more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Doing service for them and others in need, helps me to find joy in my own life. I have found that when I am feeling down, the best way for me to pull out of it is too look at what I can do for somebody else. A few other ways I live my faith is by praying, reading the scriptures, and attending the Temple. When I pray and read my scriptures, Heavenly Father answers my prayers. I learn new principles I can apply into my life. I strive to work on changing to become more like Christ. This is how I live my Faith. Serving others, learning, and applying what I learn to become a better person.
