Hi I'm Stuart Edge
I am 25 years old, and I was born in UT. I like to make YouTube videos, play guitar, dance, rock climb, eat food, hang out with friends and go on dates. Currently I am a full-time YouTuber! I have been doing this since December 2012. I've had a lot of interesting jobs. I worked at an elementary school from 2010-2011, cleaned porta potties from 2011-2012, and worked at a company called Orabrush towards the end of 2012. I have been very blessed in my life! Now I am just trying to live the dream, become a successful person, and have a family someday.
Why I am a Mormon
Why not? I love the church so much. I was born into the church, and I was 8 years old when I was baptized. I think that the most valuable lesson I have learned being a Mormon is that God has a plan for us. I have met a lot of people doing what I do, and have grown to love all of them. I can only imagine the love our Heavenly Father has for each of us. He as a plan for us, and part of that plan is for us to return home to live with him. I am so grateful to know I will be able to be with those that I loved in this life, and we will continue to be a family forever. That knowledge is more valuable to me than anything else. That's why I love being a Mormon!
Can you talk about the missions of the Church and your participation in them?
I served a mission for the church in Veracruz, Mexico. We serve missions so that we can help others receive the Gospel in their lives. Missionaries don't choose where they serve their missions. What they do is they send their information to the church,and then the prophet chooses where they will serve. Men need to be single, between the ages of 18-26, and server for a period of 2 years. Single women at the age of 19 and up serve for 18 months. Senior couples can also serve missions.
How I live my faith
There is a lot of media in the world, and a lot of it is good, but there is also media that brings you down. I try and live my faith, by producing media that is uplifting and inspiring. I also currently attend a Student Ward, so there are a lot of ways to get involved. One of the main things we do is visit one another and share a spiritual message with them. I really enjoy this because as a college student it is really easy to get lost in homework, and work, so it is nice to have a spiritual uplifting.
