Hi I'm Erin

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I am passionate about running, the outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I will be serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints beginning in October 2017. I am very excited to serve in the Nebraska Omaha Mission, English speaking. I have also been attending school at Brigham Young University, where my tentative plan is to graduate with a major in Exercise Science and a minor in Art History. I discovered a devotion for running around the time I was twelve, and have continued to enjoy the sport, as I have been apart of cross-country and track teams. I also enjoy soccer, which I played for nine years, piano, which I played for eight, and Irish step-dancing, which I took part of for five years. I am an enthusiast of the fine arts, especially visual art, and love writing and reading as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the peace and and love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints provides, as it is the most constant and reassuring truth I know. In environments that sometimes feel polluted with confusion, fear, inequality, or hardship I know that I can rely upon a Savior who loves me perfectly, and can comfort me when I feel lost or afraid. I am a Mormon because I know that when I choose to follow the Savior's footsteps, and work to be more Christ-like, I can be an influence for good in the world, and an instrument for spreading love to others. I'm a Mormon because I know that when I make mistakes, I can find second chances through Christ's infinite and unyielding Atonement.

How I live my faith

I have served in several positions in my church, working with young women, as well as coordinating visiting teaching appointments, and participating in visiting teaching others myself. I have often played the prelude and accompanying music at church activities and meetings. I attend church every Sunday, and work to be apart of the different lessons and counsels I am included in.
