Hi I'm Erin

I grew up in Boise, Idaho. I am a missionary serving in the Texas, Houston Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently living in Meridian, Idaho and am preparing to serve a mission in the Texas, Houston Mission. I love to be with my family and spend time with them, especially playing games or watching old movies. I love to paint and most enjoy painting God's beautiful creations like mountains and trees. I enjoy hiking, vacationing, and seeing new parts of the world. One of my favorite places I have traveled is in Oahu, Hawaii, and the Redwoods in California.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Mormon church for my whole life. My parents raised me in the church. However, I have been personally converted to this gospel gradually as I have lived my testimony. When I am living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I know with all of my heart that what I am doing is right and true. As I have come to know more about my Savior, Jesus Christ, I have gained such a strong relationship with Him and come to understand more of who I am and what my purpose on this earth is. The Atonement of Jesus Christ plays such a huge role in my life and I am so thankful for all that he does for me in forgiving my weaknesses and helping me become stronger. I love this church because I know that it is the only true church on this earth that has the fullness of Jesus Christ's gospel.

How I live my faith

I have been a member my whole life and have loved being a Mormon. There is so much opportunity to serve not only my Heavenly Father, but my ward family and my community. I have served in the Primary program, which is like a Sunday school for the young children during church. after being in Young Women's, which is also a program for the 12-18 yr old girls. I taught the 6 year old class and loved every second of it. They taught me so much on how to be kind and happy. I have loved serving in the church and for the opportunity to serve God and my brothers and sisters.
