Hi I'm Erika

I grew up in a strong LDS home. I love creating music. I am a missionary of the LDS church. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up with a love of music. I know that music that testifies of Christ has great power and brings the spirit. I am a pianist and an adequate singer. My favorite thing is using these talents to help others and myself feel the spirit. I have a great love for my family. I receive so much love and strength from them and know that through the blessings of the temple I can be with them forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I have faith in them that if I keep my standards high and keep the commandments they have given me through the scriptures and through our modern day prophets then I will find true joy. My experiences that I have had in doing hard things because the prophet has asked me to, have blessed me far more than the sacrifice it took in order to follow those commandments. I know that my Savior and my Heavenly Father know me. I have felt them in my life, especially in times when I struggle. I have prayed in those times and have felt an overwhelming feeling of love and acceptance from them. I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true. This knowledge has come through small acts of faith, which would include reading my Book of Mormon, going to church, staying worthy of my temple recommend, going to the temple, reaching out to those that need help, acting on promptings of the spirit, learning to love those that might be hard to love, and praying to Him every single day. By staying connected with Him, I can find happiness, peace, and hope in the future. I can find comfort in the knowledge that I have that even though my life in front of me won't be easy, it will still be filled with joy and fulfillment because Jesus Christ died for me. He knows me and I am striving in my daily life to know Him more and more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at this time through serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Peru. I decided to serve this mission because of my knowledge of the truth of this gospel. I know God is real and have felt Him in my daily life. I have found so much joy from living this gospel and striving to be close to God. I have felt a fraction of God's love for the rest of children and want them to feel of that same joy, peace, and fulfillment. As a missionary, I am called to strive to bring others to Christ. I do that through sharing my beliefs, sharing Christ's love with those around me, and challenging others to come to Him through reading the Book of Mormon and praying.
