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.
