Hi I'm Heather Erickson

I grew up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have four older siblings and one younger brother. We love to go to Disneyland and travel together. I love to sing, play soccer and spend time with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope and a stablility in my life. When I go through challenges and feel like all hope is lost I know I have a Savior who has suffered for me. I don't know my exact purpose and reason as to why I'm supposed to go on a mission, I'm just continuing in faith. I don't understand how hard it will be now...but I know it will be so worth it and so rewarding to bring people to the gospel. God wouldn't be sending me to Ecuador if He knew I couldn't do it, and I know I can't do it alone. He'll be there right by my side and I'll have days where He'll be carrying me up and down the streets but I know I can do all things through Christ. I am grateful that I chose to rededicate myself to my Heavenly Father when I moved out on my own and decided to build my own testimony. I am grateful for the book of mormon and I know it is true. Knowing that the Savior’s love and sacrifice covers all is such a powerful message that I get to share as a messenger of the Lord. Because of the Atonement my relationship with God and Christ are stronger, and they make me whole. The gift of Repentance and knowing we can be cleansed gives me hope, and helps me have patience with myself. I know that Jesus Christ died for each and every one of us, so we can live and be here and grow. He loves us, He gave us the ultimate gift, and multiple chances. I know He lives, I know He suffered for me. I know I am a daughter of God and that we have a Heavenly Father and Mother. I'm grateful for a living prophet that leads and guides this church, I know he is called of God. I know Joseph Smith was called by God to restore His church in this dispensation. I wouldn't be here without Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I love this gospel with my whole heart.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary serving in Ecuador! I teach others about God, Jesus Christ and about the LDS church.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?
