Hi I'm Eric

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 26 years old and I am a citizen of the Republic of Ireland. I'm an introvert! My wife and I have been married for almost 4 years and have two brilliant children. I work in the consumer goods industry and really enjoy my job. I really enjoy outdoors and physical activities; football, table tennis, the gym and hill walking. I also love to read.

Why I am a Mormon

My Father joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was three years old. My mother has remained a Catholic since her childhood. As a result I had the wonderful opportunity of being presented with alternatives from an early age. This led me to question and want to find out answers to questions like; Is God really there? Does he have a plan for me? Which church should I join? I found peace and understanding in the teachings of the Church and in the Book of Mormon. Perhaps I liked some of the ideas shared and built friendships in local congregations but most of all I just knew the church was true. Through consistent and quiet prayer, and reading of the scriptures I came to know from God, that His church had been restored in our day. I was baptised when I was 17.

How I live my faith

I'm responsible for watching over the finances for our local church congregations. I help manage the budgets and train organisations on the same. Nothing too exciting but it keeps me out of trouble :) In my own way I guess I'm trying to become more like Jesus Christ in how I act every day. I find reading about Him and people who live like Him helps encourage me to be better, so I try to do a bit of that each day.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of the ancient inhabitants of the American continent. Prophets of God who lived in their times recorded the prophicies and teachings about Jesus Christ so we can learn of him today. It teaches of God's love for us and what we must do to be happy in this life and return home to our Father in Heaven in the next. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I really enjoy reading it!
