Hi I'm Elder Eckhardt

I grew up in a farm in Washington state, moved to Utah in 2010. I'm serving the Texas Houston (east) Spanish speaking mission.

About Me

I'm going on a mission pretty soon here. My hobbies are acting, playing games board games, like risk, chess, pictionary and card games like MTG or hand and foot I also enjoy playing soccer, football and on occasion rugby.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 8 I had the option of joining the Lutheran church (my fathers) or to become LDS with the rest of my mothers family and in order to decide I prayed and felt that the LDS church was the correct choice for me.

How I live my faith

I try to live everyday as a servant to others and help them out as much as I can. I really enjoy helping others out whenever they are in times of need. I cannot wait to do this on my mission.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Elder Eckhardt
It contains the writings of ancient prophets. One of these, Lehi, lived in Jerusalem around 600 B.C. God commanded Lehi to lead a small group of people to the American continent. There they became a great civilization. God continued to call prophets among these people. The Book of Mormon is a collection of the writings of their prophets and record keepers. It is named after Mormon, one of the last of these ancient prophets. Show more Show less
