My name is Eric Nielson. I am married and have four sons. I am a mechanical engineer who lives and works in western Ohio.
I am a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am the oldest of six children and grew up in Rexburg Idaho. I served a mission in Georgia during the mid 80′s. My wife and I got married in the Denver Temple.
My interests are most any kind of sport, particularly golf. I can hold my own in a chess game most of the time and even beat my dad once in a while. I am also quite a Rush fan.
I began blogging in the latter part of 2005. I sought out the Bloggernacle because I was getting a bit bored with the church curriculum and the Ensign. No disagreements, just wanted more interactive depth. I have had several ups and downs with LDS blogging, and frequently consider hanging it all up. Time will tell.
My simple belief in the existence of God, a couple of religious experiences regarding the Savior Jesus Christ, and the content of the Book of Mormon, serve as anchors to my testimony and my life. I hope that I can gain a better understanding of the teachings and doctrines of the church. I also hope that perhaps I can do some little bit of good through my efforts here. I am grateful for all those who visit and interact with me on this site.
