Hi I'm Richard Edwards

Most days you will see me smile because I love people! I am a student, getting ready for life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to smile! When people are smiling the world is a better place. I love to swim. The water is my favorite place to be in the whole world! Living life has to be the best thing I have ever done. There is no happier time then when with friends and family, just enjoying life! (for me, friends in the water make it all the better:)

Why I am a Mormon

Yes, I was born into the church. But that is not why I am a member. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. At the end of the book, it mentions to pray and ask if the things in the book are not true, and I have. The Holy Ghost has confirmed to me through the spirit of God that they are true. I am so convinced that this church is true that I am going to spend two years of my early life serving God by going out and teaching others his truth. Its not a matter of being told that its true for me. I just ask myself, is this church the true church, and I answer myself. Yes, of course it is true! I can not wait to serve the lord because being with his church has blessed me so much. I am happy and I can smile because I know His teachings are correct.

How I live my faith

My faith in Christ effects every single day of my life. I am not perfect in living the gospel. But the gospel effects every desition I make. We, as human beings, make decisions based on what has already happened in our life. We make decisions based on the knowledge we have and then we act on faith for every action requires faith. As I continue to act on the knowledge of the gospel because as I act, I become happier. As I become happier, I am enspired to continue to life the standards that I believe God gave us.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Richard Edwards
For me, God is in my studies. I find it hard to comprehend the laws of this world without knowing there is a God who is in controle. This whole world shows order. When we preform action, we expect consequence. When there is consequence we know that there is something bigger then us to create disipline. Without order, matter no longer has to stay within its bounds giving every molecule a rule over itself. As we have found from history, when small bits no longer stay within a boundry or rule, everything falls apart. God is my order. He is my direction and master. I stay withing His bounds in order to keep order in this world. Show more Show less
