Hi I'm Erik Glembin

I was born in Milwaukee, WI, USA. Grew up in Las Vegas, NV, USA and now reside in Erie, PA, USA. I work in a donut factory.

About Me

I have a wonderful, supportive wife. I am a father to two awesome children. I am currently working in a donut factory. We make shelf-stable donuts. I am a baker and I specifically make the glaze that goes on most of our products. I work third shift and still get to spend a lot of the day with my family. I try to cross stitch but end up starting over most of the time.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I became a member, I studied the gospel for four years. I was agnostic before, I wasn't sure if there really was God. I was friends with a member of the Church for years and one day we started talking about the physical characteristics of God and from what he told me I eventually knew that what he was saying was true. That was in Arizona, now I live in Pennsylvania and have no contact with him. I hope one day I can tell him what he has done for me and my family. I love the gospel, I have tried to make our family's home a Christ centered one. I know that Heavenly Father wants his children to follow the teachings of His Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Being a new member to the Church, I am mostly focused on teaching members but they usually end up teaching me. I try to involve my family in the Gospel of Jesus Christ at home. Sometimes we get overwhelmed with life and the world we'll have to "reset" and remember that when we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, the rest of life falls in to place.
