Hi I'm Erin

I'm a mom, and part-time reader, piano player, singer, baker, runner, & hiker. I'm a Speech Therapist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a speech therapist and new mom. I love spending time outdoors, reading, music, and spending time with family. I am also passionate about helping individuals with special needs.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because I have learned that the principles of Christ's gospel are the surest way to find happiness in this life. I also believe that families were meant to be forever. I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has testified to me that God loves and cares about His children and has a plan for them to return to live with Him.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by studying the words of God daily. I strive to develop a Christlike character by being honest, friendly, caring, and sincere. I teach a sunday class for 8 year olds where I help them to know that they are children of God, that He loves them, and that He has a plan for their lives. I try to make my family relationships strong and supportive so that I can help my family members face the challenges of life.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Erin
The Book of Mormon was written by several ancient prophets in an ancient language. Because of that, Joseph Smith translated their words into English so that we can read their words today. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Erin
Our bodies and lives are a gift from God. Because of that, we need to take care of them. Our bodies allow us to experience so much that life has to offer, but we need to be careful of things that are dangerous to our body and soul. If we take care of our bodies, we are more likely to have a long healthy life were we can do more good, serve others, and be happier. Our bodies are called temples because their house our spirits which are divine. We need to keep our bodies healthy and pure because what we do with our bodies affects our spirits as well.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Erin
Heavenly Father is the perfect father and as such wants to be involved in His children's lives. We can come to know Him through sincere prayer, studying the words He has given us in scripture the Bible and the Book of Mormon. We can also come to know and understand Him better by trying to live His commandments. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Erin
We believe that Christ truly meant for their to be "one fold" and He is the "one Shepherd." God is a God of order and so has a consistent organization to His church. He has a living prophet that receives revelation from Him to share with the world. Because of this, the world needs to know that there is a living prophet today and that God speaks to him.  Show more Show less
