Hi I'm Erika Merrill

I love adventures and spending time outdoors. I am a soccer player and a musician. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student who loves to play and explore outdoors. I try to do my best balancing my school life and social life. I love to play the piano and enjoy playing soccer. I am always interesting in trying new recipes to make some new yummy foods. I love spending time with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family that went to church every Sunday and taught me to always strive to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ. I have always leaned on my parents testimony. As I have left my home to go to school I have had to stand on my own testimony. I have found that I know that this church is true for my own self. Each week I have to decide if I am going to go to church. There is nobody here to tell my whether or not to go. Each Sunday I decide to go because the Spirit that is felt and church is unlike almost anywhere else. I have learned that it is so important each week to renew my promises with Jesus Christ. I know that he lives and that he died for my sins and without him I wouldn't be able to find the same comfort that he gives me. The plan that have been put in place for all of us is so perfect and is centered around Christ and his want for all of us to make it back to him. Heavenly Father loves all of us we are His Children and doesn't want anything less for us then for us to live with him. I know these things to be true, because I can feel the love that Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ has for me, and he loves you too just as much. We are all his children and loves us all equally.

How I live my faith

Each Sunday I enjoy going to church and feeling of the Spirit and being able to refocus my week on Jesus Christ. Church is very important to me because I can renew my promises with my Heavenly Father that I have made with him through Baptism. Each day of my life I try to be an example of Jesus Christ. I have found that by loving, serving, and being kind to those whom I am around makes everybody happier and helps form stronger and lasting friendships.
