Hi I'm Eddie

I grew up in the Las Vegas area. I like to learn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a graduate student who loves politics and good foreign movies. I've been to law school and enjoy swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when I was 12 years old, I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to find out if it was true. After reading and praying, I received a strong feeling and witness from God that it was absolutely true. Even though I may struggle in life, I have always been able to fall back on the sure knowledge of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do what's right every day. For support in that, I read the scriptures and pray to God daily. On Sundays, I attend church and listen and participate in the talks and classes given by my fellow Mormons. There I feel their support and strength as they inspire to better follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Eddie
We should take care of our bodies because they are wonderful gifts from God. He created us in His image and we should take care of and respect that awe-inspiring creation called our body. Our bodies are called temples because as we follow God's commandments, God's Spirit can dwell with us just like it dwells in God's temples. Show more Show less
