Hi I'm Ervin

I live for my God, my family, and my fellow man. I love listening and reading the words of the prophets.

About Me

Hi! I am a young dad! I am 21 years old and I have a beautiful 2 year old son. I work full time, and some more. I am reorganizing my life. When I was a teenager I made decisions that led me down strange paths. Through the grace and atonement of Jesus Christ I am taking the opportunity to change and make decisions that will lead me to eternal happiness. I am at the doorstep of continuing my education and I have been given sacred keys called the priesthood which will enable me to unlock the doors of long awaited blessings, strength, faith, charity, and discipleship.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I believe in Jesus Christ the son of God. I have read The Book of Mormon from cover to cover and asked in faith, believing that I would receive an answer from God, if the words, covenants, commandments, and prophesies in the book are true. I was answered positive by the impressions of the Holy Ghost which I felt and feel in my whole soul. I am a mormon because I have faith, or believe in things that are true but that I cannot see. For example, words, or the testimonies of all the members of the church who are around me beginning with my mom and reaching as close, and far, as the voice of the modern day prophets and apostles, to our fist father Adam, our great father Abraham, and our loving Savior, even Jesus Christ the son of God. My testimony sprang from my desire to know the purpose of my existence on our lovely planet Earth. The word of God through his holy prophets have served as a root, or a sure foundation, to keep the faith in Jesus Christ and his gospel in his true church. I am one more soul who has taken upon myself the name of Jesus Christ and extend my testimony all the day long, inviting you to come and partake of the love and peace of the living Son of God, even Jesus Christ. I testify that The Book of Mormom is the word of God, Joseph Smith was called of God to translate that holy text, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints is the kingdom of God on Earth, and Jesus Christ is the Savior of our souls. In the holy and sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have a saying, "I cannot do it all. But everything I can do, I will do!" Unofficially, I pick up all the trash I can as I'm walking around anywhere on my way to work or at the mall. In my ward I have been called to be the second counselor to a Young Men's Presidency. As a presidency we share with parents the responsibility for the spiritual welfare of the young men ages 12-18. I give classes to the youth on Sunday's and help chaperon the activities on Wednesdays and as opportunity provides. I study the prophets of God every day. My goal is to learn my way to heaven!

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Ervin
To stop the influence of pornography we must know who we are and who those whom we call our families and neighbors are. We are all beloved sons and daughters of the most high God. We must understand the sacredness of our bodies and the responsibilities which come with having a body. Our bodies are temples to the Holy Ghost, the spirit of God. We have been given a sacred responsibility and commandment to "be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth." (Genesis 9:1) To receive the influence and peace of God through the Holy Ghost we must keep our thoughts, words, and actions pure of evils that would tempt us to abuse our sacred God given gift of procreation. To stop the influence of pornography we must learn and live the morals and standards taught in the restored gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and boldly keep and defend these morals and standards.
