Hi I'm Erika Herrera

I love music & dancing. I love soccer & running. I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Fl Jacksonville mission!

About Me

I'm am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Jacksonville Florida mission! I love it! Being a full-time missionary has been the best decision i ever made. My mission teaches me new things every single day. I grew up in the church and I love my church, family, friends, and beliefs. I love running, sports and dance. I graduated high school a year ago. I want to become a nurse which I'm totally happy with. Helping others is something I would love to spend my life doing. The Gospel of Jesus-Christ is what give me the daily joy I have which is why I love being in Jacksonville sharing it with others. I love meeting new people and hope that I can be a good influence to this world. I want to be the very best I can be so that I can reach the potential that my Heavenly Father sees in me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the great joy it brings to my life every single day. It's not that just temporary happiness the world think it's an eternal happiness. My family raised me in the LDS church. As I grew older I began to understand & ask for myself. I came to know that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. I know that we have a loving Heavenly father that loves us so much he restored the gospel through a prophet so that we can live happier lives, have a sense of purpose, become like him & most importantly so that we can return to him. He loves us and he wants us back so much that he sent his only begotten son here to earth to die for each and everyone of us.It is only through the atonement of Jesus Christ that we can become pure & clean to be able to return clean to the presence of our father. Anything that seems unfair in life can be made right through the atonement. I'm grateful for our Father's plan. Families are eternal. Such and important thing to me. I lost my dad when I was 15 but I know that because of this plan I will see him again. Death is just another step to this plan. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. The Book of Mormon is played a big role in my life. It is the map to my life. Especially as I'm looking for locations of where to go & what to do as a servant of the lord. I love my savior and because I love him I want to follow him. That's why I've chosen to be his disciple so that I can share that joy that his true gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best I can be. Each day doing something that makes a difference that helps me grow as a person and brings me closer to my Heavenly Father. That assures me that i'm progressing more and more each day that passes by. Being Christ like by loving others and serving them which is why I made the choice to serve a mission. I want to be a disciple of Christ! That is what is all about and i believe that is what brings me the joy in mi life. I love my faith and I believe in my faith.
