Hi I'm April Erickson

I'm from St. George, Utah. I love to sing, and enjoy reading and writing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in St. George Utah. If there is one thing that everyone knows about me, it is that I love music. If I like a song, I will most likely immediately try and find an arrangement of it on the piano that I can play. Music is the way the I can get away from the world. I also love spending time with my family and friends. They mean everything to me, and I want to do everything I can to make them happy. I love being in the sun, and it makes it better to be surrounded by multiple people just having a good time.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel I have a personal relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ because of prayer. I pray, and they listen. They send me the people I need. They help me find the answers I am searching for. I have felt their influence in my life. When I read the Book of Mormon, I get this overwhelming feeling that it is the most truthful book that I have ever read. I know that it is true, and I don't say that just because. I have read and prayed about it, and I have received an answer. I know that Heavenly Father has given us Prophets to show the way. I know that the leaders of the church were called of God to give us guidance in our lives. I love this gospel, and I know without a doubt in my mind that it is true.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in Virginia. I love studying from the scriptures, especially the life of Christ in the New Testament and the Book of Mormon. I have found a lot of strength from these two subjects. I take every opportunity I can to share my testimony, and I constantly pray and rely on the spirit to help me know what to say to the individuals I meet. I love sharing the gospel! The gospel is something that has made me so happy, and so I want to share that happiness with others.
