Hi I'm Rees Erickson

I grew up in Utah, USA. I am an Aggie. I am a Mormon.

I danced ( Ballet, Jazz, and Ballroom), was a Cheerleader, Gymnast, Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, Swimmer, Choir girl, member of National Honors Society, Key Club, and a Student Body Officer my senior year of High School. I was a Gymnastics/ Cheer leading Coach and love being around kids. I am the second of six children, oldest girl. I grew up in Granstville Utah, once a Cowboy always a Cowboy! I enjoy serving others, making people laugh, and am a good listener. I plan on becoming a High School Counselor. I will be serving a full time Mission for 18 months in Manchester New Hampshire, I leave July 30, 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the restored gospel and of my savior Jesus Christ. I know that this church is true and that obedience in keeping the commandments is what will bring peace and happiness into my life. There is a light that I feel when I attend church, study the scriptures, and testify of Christ. This light is a personal witness to me of the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. He lives, He loves me, He understands me, and He will always be there for me.

How I live my faith

I seek opportunities to help others out. I forgive easily and always try to see the best in people. We are God's children and our purpose is to love one another.
