Hi I'm Eric B

I live in Southern California, I have a wonderful wife, I'm the father of six sons, I love the ocean and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Eric Schultz, I'm the father of six sons. I have been married to the same woman for 40 years. We have ten grandsons and five grand-daughters. We have lived in Southern California for the past twenty-eight years. We enjoy all that San Diego has to offer. . . Living in Southern California gives us access to the moutains, the desert and the ocean all in the same day. We love the ocean and have spent many hours as a family swimming, surfing and scuba diving. I love the outdoors and have spent several years involved with Boy Scouts. I enjoy working with young men and seeing their accoplishments. I work in the computer industry helping others by keeping there systems up and running. At this time in my life I look forward to being a full time grandfather.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a rich heritage of Mormon pioneers. My great-great grandparents joined the Church in England in 1839. They emigrated to the United States. They lived in Navuoo, IL and then like thousands of others made the grueling trek to Utah. One might think after five generations, tradition would play a major role in being a member of the church. Tradition is important and I am proud of my pioneer heritage. However there comes a time in one's life when important decisions have to be faced, like our relationship with our Heavenly Father and how we will live our life. Why am I a Mormon? Because I gained a testimonty of the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith the same way my ancestors did. Just like anyone else has to, life long member or convert. My testimony came from prayer and fasting, study and living the principels I learned. The Savior's teachings and the Church provides a foundation for life in a world of shifting values.

How I live my faith

My mother always told me your actions speak louder than your words. One's actions are a testimony of their faith. The Savior taught, "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Through this the Savior teaches us the importance of serving others. I would hope that the way I treat others would be in line with what the Saviors teaches, that is how one lives their faith.
