Hi I'm Aspen Edwards

Kia Ora koutou. I was born in New Zealand. I am the eldest child of 12 in my family. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a proud Cook Islander, Maori. I love sports (Basketball especially) and I love music. At the moment I am studying to become an early childhood teacher. Music is a passion of mine and continue to learn and grow through musical involvement. I play the piano, the flute, the guitar and the ukulele. I love hula dancing and representing my culture.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child my parents enstilled in me values and teachings of the gospel. Through personal prayers, scripture study and attending necessary meetings and activities I have come to personally love and know that the gospel of jesus christ and the church of Jesus christ of latterday saints is true. I have a testimony that through this gospel families can be together forever. It is through Christ and that we are able to have to opportunity to learn and live the ways of which our father in heaven wants us to. Jesus atoned for my sins as well as the worlds which allows us the ability to return to live with our heavenly father. Music is a powerful source of teaching the gospel. I want to be able to live as christ did and to be an example to all those I meet.

How I live my faith

My calling is taking care of the music within our ward as well as helping out with our tamariki (children) with their music in their classes.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Aspen Edwards
We believe families can be together forever through the plan of our heavenly father. Families are important in nurturing and continuing to learn and love the gospel. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Aspen Edwards
Being a mormon if I can describe it is having a car. In order for the car to work it needs certain things to help make it go. It's not easy looking after a car and unexpected things like accidents can happen but if you take care of the car, it is a useful too. Just like us Mormons, being a mormon as you call it requires faith. It requires learning and growth. Things may not be smooth and we are humans but when we live these virtues and live righteously the car/us Mormons have a pretty sweet life. Show more Show less
