Hi I'm Erin White

I am a member of the LDS church. Born and raised in Utah. I love music and love to sing.

About Me

I have been a member of the LDS church my entire life. My absolute favorite hobby is music. I love to sing and if I could be anything it would be a music teacher. That's what I am planning on going to school for. Before attending school, I am planning on serving an LDS mission and I absolutely cannot wait!! I can play the flute and am working on learning the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

To me, church used to be so boring, I mean, it was the same thing every time you went! That was my attitude for a while. In school, church didn't make you "cool" it made you anything but. It was all about fitting in, right? No. I have always been a member of this church.. but I never truly understood what it meant to be a member of the church until I went looking for the answer myself. When you feel at your lowest and it feels like everyone and their dog has forgotten you.. it gets pretty hard to see the blessings you've been given. And then it hit me, I wasn't happy because I didn't trust my Heavenly Father. I didn't truly believe he was always there. Well, one night I was clearing out some of the random stuff in my room. And I came across a letter. A letter given to me in one of my sunday school classes. A letter from Heavenly Father. I had been given this letter years ago, and I never read it.. It was like God had hand delivered this letter to me, because I needed to hear it at that exact moment. When I read those words, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of comfort, and joy. And I knew that this was only the beginning. That God has a plan for me. Greater than my mind could ever think of. That day was the day I had gained the strongest testimony I had ever been given. That he lives and knows me personally. That this is his church and he has called me to bring his children back, to live with him again. That is why I remain a member of this church. Because if I denied this church I would be denying God, who has given me no reason to doubt his plan. Who sacrificed his Only Begotten Son, to atone for our sins, Jesus Christ suffered the sins of this world, ALL of ours sins. He truly knows what we're feeling.. our struggles, our sorrow, our frustrations because he felt them. I find comfort in this knowledge and will forever strive to be the faithful daughter he has asked me to be.

How I live my faith

I am currently a teacher in the senior Primary. I teach 9-10 year olds and I love it so much! The Primary teaches me so many things and strengthens my testimony everyday. Every time we sing those Primary songs, it brings me back to when I was in Primary. How innocent I was and how easy it was to just follow what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. I never had to question, I just did it because it was what I was told to do. It makes me want to be made pure and innocent once more.
