Hi I'm Jeremy Edis

I was born and raised in Canada. I play guitar and sing. I love to write songs and express myself through music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jeremy and I love serving and helping others to come unto Christ. I love the joy that comes from Jesus Christ and from living the gospel. I am an avid musician. I play guitar, alto saxophone, I sing, and I can muttle around on the drums, piano and bass, but I wouldn't say that I can actually play those instruments. I love music, whether it be jamming with friends, singing in choir, listening to it, writing new songs, recording, performing, dancing to it; I love it! :) Music is a huge part of my life. Through music I express myself, my thoughts and my feelings. Music is what lifts my mood when I'm down, and inspires me to be better.

Why I am a Mormon

I can't say that there has ever been a time in my life that I have had a miraculous spiritual experience and immediately became converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. To me the process of conversion and gaining a testimony has been a gradual experience. But I can say that I know that I have felt the spirit in my life countless times. I know what it feels like to have the spirit and I also know what it feels like when I don't have the spirit. I am a mormon because of the wonderful joy and happiness that I feel in my life when I live the gospel. There is no better way to find peace and happiness in this life than through following Jesus Christ. I know that because in the past when I have not always lived the gospel, I was not happy. But as I decided every day to change and follow the example of Jesus Christ, I realised that there is such a better way to live life. I realised that God doesn't give us commandments to restrict us, He gives us commandments because He loves us and He wants us to be happy. And true happiness comes as we strive to do what is right and to help others. I am a mormon because I know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth, and I know that as I live is it brings me happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. Each day I strive to be the best I can be, by reading my scriptures, praying to my Father in Heaven, striving to help others in any way I can, and by sharing the gospel with others so they can experience the same joy in their life that I have felt. I live my faith by striving to always be better, and improve my faults, and to be more like Jesus. Life can be difficult at times, but I know that as I continue to put forth my best effort, God will help me, and I am able to feel of His love for me. I live my faith by serving others, in the church, the neighborhood, and in the community. As I serve it brings me joy, because I know that others appreciate it, and I am happy to help them. I also know that God wants us to help each other, and as I serve I know He is pleased with me.
