Hi I'm Alexander Edward

I'm a college student majoring in Mechanical Engineering. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I can be quiet and I can be loud. I enjoy longboarding and riding motorcycles. I also love to read classic literature. I spend most of my time at work or in school. Someday I hope to help people by improving their lives through my engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to find out as I grow older that life is hard and often unfair. I am the kind of person who could easily focus on this and become cynical. Don't you ever just have those days when you feel like you can't do everything that has been asked of you and feel overwhelming weak? I know I have... and this is why I am a Mormon. There is someone out there who has been through it all and that is Jesus Christ. I know in my heart He died for all of his children, me and you included. By doing so, He made it possible for us to overcome life's challenges. When we mess up, we can come back. When we reach those days when we can't, He tells us we can and goes the whole way with us. I want to spend my life growing closer to Him and I have found no better way than learning more about Him. In the Mormon church we read "The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ", an ancient record about the Savior through the eyes of people like you and me. Here I have come to know my Savior even better and I have prayed to know if what I have read is true. The answer God gave was a resounding "Yes!" inside of me. I know God loves us all and will answer anyone's prayer about the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was just asked to teach out of the Old Testament to a group of fellow college aged students. I always get nervous in front of people but I love talking about my Savior. In the past, I have had many opportunities to teach about Him and every time I took a little step of faith to overcome my stage fright, I have been uniquely blessed. The Lord has always carried what I was trying to say to others hearts.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Alexander Edward
The Mormon missionaries will be a joy to have in your home. They will be kind and respectful too. They will talk of Christ and his plan for you. They will share their witness that He is the Savior of the world and explain how he related with man throughout the scriptures. Most importantly, they will proclaim that God has not forgotten us in these days and will share how he is speaking to us even now. Show more Show less
