Hi I'm Eric

I live in Utah. I'm 19. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm 20 years old. I love doing things outside. I love laughing and being around people. I love sticky notes and having plans. I love cereal. I love music. I love my family and friends. I love brownies. I love exercising. I've always wanted to have my own YouTube channel where I can make music but also make people laugh. I'm enthusiastic.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young I decided to follow my parents and my older sister to be baptized at the age of 8. At the time I knew it was true but as I got older I fell away and wasn't really sure if it was true. I went to church because of friends, not because I liked it or because I read the scriptures. Throughout this whole time I prayed because I had always felt God was there and that he listened. I made a lot of stupid mistakes, things that ended up effecting my family that I didn't think would. Well I got to my senior year and I realized I couldn't keep living like this. I couldn't keep being in a dark spot. So knowing that my 18th birthday would come up fast, I prayed and asked God to know what was true. I read the Book of Mormon for a couple days and got a feeling that I needed to call my bishop, so I did and I started a journey of cleaning up my life. It was not easy, it was a up and down process. My birthday had come up and I knew that I could serve a mission. I had a miraculous experience that helped me decide to serve. I am definitely not perfect but everyday I try to do my best and I am seeing blessings come from it and others being blessed for my willingness to serve and spread the gospel. I know that this gospel is true and that God and Jesus Christ do care and want the best for you. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full time mission For the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Atlanta Georgia north mission.
