Hi I'm Erica Luke

I just graduated from High School. I am serving a mission in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved from Southern California to Idaho when I was 14. I'm the oldest child in my family. I have two younger brothers. I love my family! We go to Lake Powell every year on vacation. Boating is my favorite thing to do. I also enjoy playing soccer and running!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who are really strong in the church. I consider it one of my greatest blessing that I have grown up in the church. By spending time together as a family every Monday, family scripture study and prayer, and going to church, I have developed my own testimony. I am Mormon because I love the values and teachings of the LDS faith. The things I have learned have helped me to draw closer to my Heavenly Father, believe and accept my Savior, and live according to gospel principals. When I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, that is when I'm the happiest, I feel I have direction in my life, and I have confidence that I can go through hard times.

How I live my faith

I go to the Single's Ward. It is a lot of fun because I get to be around people my age. On Monday nights we get together and do fun activities! We also have spiritual thoughts that help uplift us. I have made many new friendships in Single's Ward! I was called to be a teacher in my church. I love teaching the women in my ward! On Wednesday's I go to Institute. It is a class where you can feel the spirit and strengthen your faith. I recently had the opportunity to go through the temple. I visit the temple as often as I can because I feel so much peace there. I find a lot of happiness from reading my scriptures and saying my prayers everyday.
