Hi I'm Shad Edwards

I am from Alpine, Utah. I love my family. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am from a little place called Alpine, Utah. I have lived there most of my life besides about 20 months that I lived in Minnesota. I currently reside in California where I am faithfully serving a 2 year voluntary mission. This is where we dedicate all our time and attention to serve the Lord by inviting others to come unto Christ. I am assigned in the California Roseville Mission where I spread the gospel in the Spanish language. Although right now I'm spending all time serving the Lord, I love sports of all kinds. Especially the NBA and College football. They are both my passions. I have season tickets to all of BYU home football games and I love to watch them play. I also am a huge fan of the Utah Jazz! Go Jazz! Other than that, I was attending Utah Valley University before my mission and am planning to go back and then transfer into BYU and apply to the buisness program. I love dealing with numbers and buisness!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormom because I know that it's true. It's blessed my life so much. Since the beginning my parents had taught be what was wrong and what was right, what made it stick was that they taught be that it was God that was telling me what was wrong and what was right. I'm so grateful for them and teaching me that. Later on in life, I was able to pray about the Book of Mormon and Joesph Smith, and God answered. I know that it's true. I know that God loves us, and it gives me so much comfort to know that.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith by serving the Lord for 2 years on a mission. We pay our own way to come out here and do this for the Lord because I want to bless the lives of others. I have been so blessed in my own life from this church, and I know that others can be blessed through it as well. As missionaries we give up worldly things so that we can focus our time and attention on the Lord. This means I do not watch the Utah Jazz play, or BYU play. Those are two things that I love to do that I've given up for my faith and love in the Lord.
