Hi I'm Eric Glenn S.

I was born in washington. I am a college student. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a college student studying civil engineering. My wife and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first child in November of this year. I am a soccer fan and I love playing the drums. I absolutely love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was originally introduced to the church by my parents. I grew up attending the Mormon church and learning about Jesus Christ. The Mormon beliefs have a lot of depth to them. I know that a lot of the doctrine and principles taught to us by the Mormon church lead me to a deeper understanding of Jesus Christ. Eventually I challenged the ideals and principles I had been taught. By going through the process of praying and asking God, I have found that the Mormon church is His organization on the world today. I am a Mormon because I know what God and Jesus Christ are doing today. Today they are leading the Mormon church.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday morning. Sunday mornings are like plugging in my spiritual batteries. As I learn more about Jesus Christ and the doctrine of the church I feel as if I am strengthing my "spiritual muscles." I also work in the church to help make sure that all of the members of the local congregation are visited each week. We organize mens to visit each family in their home and make sure that the families are doing okay. We offer service, and share a brief spiritual message. My responsibility is to assure that those visits are made, to fill in for others when they can't be there, and to collect reports on how those families are doing.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon, similar to the Bible, is another volume of sacred scriptures that testifies of Jesus Christ and His teachings. It was written by men called Prophets in the American continent. God spoke to these prophets in the America just as He did with his prophets in the ancient time. The Book of Mormon is another record of God's dealings with his children. The book is written specifically for us in our days. One of my favorite scriptures from the Book of Mormon is found in the Book of Mormon, Chapter 8, Verse 35. It reads "Behold, I speak unto you as if ye were present, and yet ye are not. But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me, and I know your doing." This shows me that the prophets in the Book of Mormon knew of me and my family personally. They knew what challenges I would face. This helps inspire me to look towards the Book of Mormon in order to know Jesus Christ more fully. Show more Show less
