Hi I'm Ryan Edwards

i love reading, making up songs with my friends and beat-boxing. I'm a Mormon

About Me

so i was a child of teenage parents mom was 17 dad was 16. that being said my childhood was a bit unorthodox. my parents split when i was 5 years old going on six and i lived with my mother so she became my role model and best friend. Although i was baptized as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was eight, I didn't believe in god for a majority of my life, until i had a life changing experience. in this experience i was made aware of the presence of god in a very real manner this was when the seed was planted. with lots of watering this seed grew into a lovely bush and it helped me to change the direction of my life away from the bad and into the good. but that was over three years ago and now i am a happy young man that is serving a mission. i am ever thankful for our kind loving heavenly father that has helped me through so much and has helped me to become the man that i am today. the man that will bring his own family into the eternity. i am so happy now for the blessing that the atonement of Jesus Christ it has helped me to keep going from day to day knowing that Jesus Christ has experienced every thing that i have experienced and more, and on top of that knowing that i have a loving father in heaven watching over me constantly makes me so happy and helps me to make my daily decisions so that i can return to live with him again my favorite scriptures are ether 12:27 and alma 60: 27-28

Why I am a Mormon

i am a Mormon because it was the eternal gospel of Jesus Christ and the examples of the men of this church that gave me hope that one day i could make something of myself. i began this journey a bit skeptical thinking that it wouldn't help me, but as i began to live in the manner that Christ did i started noticing something different i found that as i did service like Christ did i because happier and happier and that as i asked for forgiveness from the wrongs that i did i felt the healing power of Jesus Christs atonement wash over me and this helped me to become a better person one that is happy to be walking the streets of the Albuquerque New Mexico Mission preaching about his gospel and the love that he has for each and everyone of us. I would like to testify that i know that our loving heavenly father knows and loves each one of his children hear on the earth.

How I live my faith

i live my faith through daily acts of service because i believe that that is the best way to be like christ. i often organize service activities for the youth and other members of the congregation to participate in to help make the community a better place.
