Hi I'm Brent Edwards

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a father of 5 wonderful children. I'm an over-the-road truck driver. My hobbies are car models, making popsicle stick models( homes, churches etc.) I also enjoy wood-working and spending time with my family. I have one brother and three sisters. My mom is still living. Dad passed away 6 1/2 years ago. I love doing temple work and genealogy. I am open to answer any questions whatsoever about my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have been raised as one also because it is true. There are a lot of people that say " I know the church is true" but that doesn't express the full meaning for me. The church is true, I am not the only one that knows it either. we are a world-wide organization;world-wide because this is Christ's church. He established it, he built it up while on the earth and restored it through his Prophet Joseph Smith. Lots of people ridicule us because they don't understand. When you read the Bible, you read about past members of this church. The gospel has existed throughout the ages and will move on bodly and nobly. If one asks me why I believe, It's because I know the truth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. No man fabricated that book; that would be impossible. If a man ridicules it, he does it out of ignorance and has not read the book. If you read it and pray about it, you will know. Where else can you learn about the full post-mortal ministry of Jesus Christ. He did not ascend to heaven and forget about us; that would negate his work that he did here on earth. To say that the heaven's are closed would be to say that God's work is done. It is not. We are still lead and guided by a true, living prophet. If you will take the time to read the scriptures and get to know the Mormons, you will know where to find all the answers to life's questions;You cannot err in doing so.

How I live my faith

I live it daily by praying and reading my scriptures. There is no break in living the gospel. you are either in or out. Heavenly Father has blessed me greatly. I know that He has sent me here to fulfill a mission. I am striving daily to fulfill that mission no matter what the cost. I have served a two year mission as a young man and strive to live up to that mission daily. I will not let the work and the things accomplished on that mission be in vain. I now serve a calling as a Sunday School leader in the church. I hope to fulfill many more callings as well and as needed.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Brent Edwards
start by talking to a friend that is member, find a local meeting-house, invite the missionaries over. Pray and read the scriptures that will be provided by them. then commit to baptizm. Do not let anybody or anything get in your way. If you want to be baptized then just do it and do it for yourself. Show more Show less

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Brent Edwards
Each prophet is chosen of God. Not one leader, whether it be man or woman decides that they want to be a prophet and starts making his way to climb the ranks He is chosen and through a succesion of years finally gets to the point where he finally takes the position of prophet, seer and revelator in the church. This is the way it was done in ancient times and this is the way it is done now. Show more Show less
