Hi I'm Eric

I grew up in Springfield Oregon. I am a Geology major at BYUI. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am newly graduated from High School and at the same time my local community college, and have been attended Brigham Young University Idaho for the past two semesters. I am a Geology major, and I enjoy sports, video games, board games, just about any type of game, being outdoors and just hanging out with good people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. That isn't why I still am a Mormon though. I'm a Mormon from the experiences I have had going to seminary, reading the scriptures, going to church events, and just living my life the way I have. I'm a Mormon because of the many, many times I have felt his love, and his spirit from listening/reading the words of the scriptures. As well as the words of the living prophets. I'm a Mormon because through the many experiences that I have felt, I know that this Church is the same Church that Jesus Christ organized on Earth two thousand years prior.

How I live my faith

I always have had callings in my church almost as long as I can remember. First I was the Deacons president (Guys from ages 12-13,) then I was the Teachers president (guys from 14-15) secretary to the priests (16-17,) and I was also the sacrament coordinator at college. Although it sounds pretty intense, in reality It just means that I bring bread for the sacrament, and assign people the duty of passing/blessing it. Since I have been 14 I have also been a home teacher. Aside from those I was also a scout leader off and on for about 8 years. Most important of all though, the way I live my faith is shown through how I speak, what I do, how I live my life. Literally everything I do is in someway effected by my faith because I know that in everything I do I can find the answers, peace, and the truth through my faith.
