Hi I'm Erika

I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 My dad is a farm boy from a small Canadian town, my mom is a city girl who grew up in New York City. I am a healthy mix of the two. I have been married to my husband for 5 years and we have a beautiful daughter and a darling son. I am a stay-at-home mom and love that I can do that. My husband is finishing school and while we have hopes and dreams of the future, I try to enjoy each day in the present because I know time flies by!

Why I am a Mormon

 I was raised in a family who was active in the church. I never questioned it because it was all I knew. However, when I was a teenager, I began to question if it was really the right thing and if living by all of the principles of the gospel were true. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true. Through different experiences I had following that prayer, I knew that the things I had been taught all my life were indeed true. I still know them to be true and enjoy teaching my own children in hopes that one day they will know for themselves that it is true. I know Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son. I know he translated the Book of Mormon which is truly the word of God. I know President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God today. And most of all, I know my Heavenly Father knows me, and loves me.

How I live my faith

 I am responsible for the music each Sunday for the Women in our ward. I try to find Hymns that correspond to the lesson being taught. I feel this adds to the wonderful spirit that is felt during these meetings. I also go with a companion visit certain women once a month at their homes. We get to know them and share stories and experiences with them. We discuss principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and learn and grow with one another. I spend a lot of time with friends in my community who all know who I am and some of what I believe. As I live my faith, they often ask questions and I answer them. My hope is that I can live each day so that people who see me will know what I believe by my actions.
