Hi I'm edward gretsch

I grew up in Vail Colorado. I love the out-of-doors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the family where one is a member of the church Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints and the other is a member of the Catholic Church. Growing up I went to both faiths and at the age of eight I found the truth through the spirit of God. even at the age of eight I was able to see the effect that the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints could have on my life and it is a real testimony to me for everything that Christ has for me and blessing my life with his sacrifice upon the cross. I love to go camping and I see this spirit everywhere I go in nature. I like to do many outdoor activities such as ice climbing mountain biking rock climbing mountaineering skiing snowboarding telemark skiing and many other outdoor recreational sports and I’m able to see the true significance of what God has created for us in the world around us and his love for us a base on nature. I am a child of God and he has sent me here to do his work to help others in my community and share my beliefs with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because Christ is shown me how I can of my life and come closer to him also that the blessings of our heavenly father are very large to what he can give us to bless us. Growing up with two parents of different religions help me to see how being a member of the same church as one of my parents who is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints to truly know the gospel of Jesus Christ and the importance of following the standards that he has laid forth in the New Testament and the book of Mormon. In the New Testament it talks about how Christ said his church up in a specific way and it closely matches up with that of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints. At the age of eight I was so greatly impressed by this that it helped me to make a decisive choice in my life of what church to be a member of and only focus my effort in that area. And to this day I am thankful for Christ sacrifice for taking upon my sins so that I may return to be with him and our heavenly father one day. Also it helps me to know who Jesus Christ heavenly father and the Holy Ghost are as three separate individuals because it allows me to have a greater understanding of who God is and what he wants for me in my life. Do the gospel I am able to live eternally sealed by the power of God with my wife forever as husband and wife.

How I live my faith

Hello my faith based on the principles that the Lord has said in the Bible. These principles are very important because they tell me how I should treat others and also how I should live to return to be with him one day. I have gone on a mission for my church because Christ himself one about it teaching his Gospel to those that are were in need and those that were afflicted in some sort of way. Also he sent his apostles out to do the same thing he himself did to teach and help those that are in need. Also the fact that God created me as one of his spiritual children and think great faith I have in him because as I do the things that he asks of me I feel as though I come closer to him and to have this closeness with him and understand who he is extremely important to me. There are many blessings that he is given me throughout my life such as my beautiful wife and the eventual family that we will have together. And it also helps my faith to see what I can do for others by not being self-centered and focus on myself.
