Hi I'm Eddy Renteria

Writer, dancer and a music lover.

About Me

Hi everyone! I'm Eddy Renteria. I'm from Bogotá Colombia, but I moved to the States. I served as a full-time missionary in the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh Mission, USA for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love my friends, dancing and traveling around the world. I am really into music and languages. I love writing poetry and meeting new people. I love to be a Mormon!! I love God and His son Jesus Christ and this wonderful gospel. I love my family because it is founded in Jesus Christ' principles and this is the best environment to learn. I am good listener and I use that gift to help people. I strive to develop Christlike attributes each day so I can be more like my Savior is. I do my best everyday to follow our Lord's example and improve as I get older and wisdom comes to me! Haha I love learning and teaching what I learn, I like spending time with a variety of people and have a lot of friends. I know that there's still hope in the world for anyone that is willing to find it through Jesus Christ our Savior. He's the only way and I am so happy to know that. The trials and challenges that I've been throughout my life have helped me to grow as a son of God with an unmeasurable potential. As I've learned to rely on the Savior, I've seen how much He does love us and wants the best for all of us. He is willing to bless us more than we've never thought before just if we work our way towards Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I found the happiness through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement. I feel awesome and in peace. I want to live with Heavenly Father some day again. I like to live a healthy life and serve people as best as I can. I also love the fact that the families can be together FOREVER! I cannot imagine a world without the Gospel of Jesus Christ; Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has helped me to find out who I am and, see everything with an external perspective. It's helped me to work on my weaknesses, repent and do better. Why am I a Mormon? Because I know for myself that this is the very true church of Jesus Christ. I know it for a fact because through prayer and scripture study, especially the Book of Mormon, I asked to the Only Source of pure knowledge, our Heavenly Father and...I got my answer! It is 100% true!!

How I live my faith

I really love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I like to help people. Everyday, I do my best to live and keep the commandments. Our Heavenly Father has given us a family and that's one of the most important things in life, that's why the Church is focus on family as well. Families can be together for ever!! That is one of the most beautiful blessings we have. I learned how to work in unity with my family and love them a little bit more everyday. Through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the amazing gift of the Atonement of our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ my life is the getting better day by day and, I know that if I am obedient and try to do better everyday, I'll draw closer to my Heavenly Father and have eternal happiness. As a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I learned more about Jesus Christ, that He loves us and wants us to do good and be happy. When I accepted to follow Him and do His will, I started to see the uncountable blessings or Father in Heaven was eager to give me. He gives us everything as long as we are obedient and do our part serving Him. As we love and serve others we will realize how big our potential is and how much we can use the Savior's teachings to help the world and brighten somebody's life. After this full-time mission, I've done my very best to be and become what the Lord wants me to become, always remembering His council saying: "Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not." Doctrine and Covenants 6:36
