Hi I'm Erika

I am from Salt Lake City Utah and have studied at the University of Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I finished my freshman year of college the University of Utah working on a double major in Psychology and English. I have always loved writing but I am more interested in learning more about people and how to help them through psychology. I would one day love to work with children as either a child life specialist or a child psychologist. I also enjoy sports such as basketball or tennis. I have been a camp counselor for a Christian church camp called Camp Fellowship for four years and have learned so much about love and service through that experience. My greatest achievement so far though has been my current service in the Milwaukee Wisconsin Mission as a full time sister missionary. I am extremely thankful for my testimony which I have had to truly work for and cultivate over the years and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I have grown up in the church, my testimony didn't truly begin to grow until I was in my late teens. I had always seen how my family had been blessed by living the gospel, but I wanted to know what blessing I could receive by my actions. When I seriously needed help and guidance, I received an answer to my prayer that I won't forget. It is what has prompted me to take my faith more seriously and to show my dedication by serving a mission. I have felt the Savior's atonement change my life and carry me throughout my life. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Before I left for my mission I held the calling of being a youth leader at a special needs ward. There I simply assisted the members there in activities and engage them in a way where they would feel comfortable and loved. I have also had the calling of being a primary teacher for the "sunbeams" or children from ages 3-4. Both of these callings have truly helped me feel the Savior's love for all of His children and I have carried that with me as I serve His children here in Milwaukee! How I live my faith is through daily communication with the Lord and striving to serve those around me in any way that I can! Just simply trying to love as the Savior would, meaning being tolerant and accepting of those around me and by smiling!
