Hi I'm BJ Edman

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years old currently serving a mission in the North Carolina Raleigh Mission. I love everything to do with sports and I really enjoy watching movies with my friends and family. There is 6 people in my family, including me! I went to 1 year of college before I left on my mission, and I plan on finishing school when I get back!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, becuase I love this gospel and it brings me so much happiness! I know that it is true because I have asked the Lord and he has told me that it is true through the Holy Spirit. I am so happy that I can live with my family for all eternity, they mean everything to me, I can't imagine life without them. I also know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I can be washed clean of all my sins! The knowledge that someone loves me so much to die for me and atone for my sins and shortcomings means the world to me! I am so grateful for Jesus Christ and He truly is my Savior! I want eveyone to know that this church is true and that they can live with their family forever. I also want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died for them, and that through their Faith they can be forgiven and live with Heavenly Father again!!

How I live my faith

Before I left on my mission I was very active in my home ward! I attended church every week and performed service with my family all around my neighborhood. I try to serve people every chance I get.

What is the priesthood?

BJ Edman
The Priesthood is the Authority and Power to act in God's name. Any worthy male member who is over the age of twelve can hold the Priesthood. The priesthood we have today is the same priesthood that Jesus Christ gave when he was ont the earth. Show more Show less
