Hi I'm Audrey Erickson

I grew up in Idaho. I have a passion for singing and art. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have completed my Freshman year as a music major with emphasis in Vocal Performance. I am now preparing to serve the Lord in the Brazil Sao Paulo South Mission. I love all things art, from music to painting. I have spent much of my life enjoying the beauty of the outdoors, and have a love for being active outside by hiking, running, mountain biking, skiing, dirt biking, and rock climbing. I have done gymnastics and cheerleading, and love to tumble.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know and believe that this is the Church of Jesus Christ. Though I have grown up in this church, I have found for myself that this is truly the Savior's true and restored Gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon many times throughout my life, studying it and praying to know if it is true. God has shown me many times through the scriptures of the truth of the Book of Mormon, and through it, answers to my prayers. I know that because of my membership in this Gospel, I can partake of the blessings that help lead us back to our Heavenly Father, and be with my family forever. The teachings of the Gospel have helped me become a better person, and especially draw nearer to my God. I am forever grateful for the knowledge I have that I am a child of God, that He loves me, knows me, and He truly cares about me and my station in life. I know that He lives. I say this in His sacred holy name, Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve as a full time missionary, so I serve often with the current missionaries presiding in my area to help teach members and non members alike. I love to help in fun activities for the ward that provide emphasis in serving refugees in our community.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Audrey Erickson
By studying the scriptures, you are studying the words of Christ. This allows you to draw nearer to Him, to learn who He is, and how you can follow His ways. I know in my own life, when I prayerfully study the scriptures daily, I find answers to my prayers and a special feeling of peace in my life that no other source provides. I feel of my Savior's love through the scriptures, and gain a perspective that grants me a greater awareness of my thoughts and actions and how I can be a better servant of Him. I know that all of the scriptures, the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures, testify of Christ and were written to help us return to our Father in Heaven someday. Show more Show less
