Hi I'm Jason Edmonds

Im Jason - from Catholic To Mormon! from Colchester.

About Me

I'm a Professional Musician by trade, I studied at the Colchester Institute in Music specialising in Classical and Jazz, I enjoy playing a range of instruments from the Violin, guitar, Piano and of course Singing. I've sang ever since I can remember and Vocals were my main study. I also enjoy family time, going out for walks, meals and just sitting down at home for a meal. My Family are not Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, my mum is a non-practicing Jew and my Father is a less active Catholic. I was raised Catholic and was confused between both Catholicism and Judaism but I went more towards the Catholic faith because of the Saviour Jesus Christ and so through studying scriptures I came across the Book of Mormon which to me allowed me to fully follow Jesus Christ our Saviour and so I was baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, and haven't looked back! I went to St Benedict's Catholic College in Colchester, I love spending time with my fiancé Elle whom I love dearly and we share many a fun time together going out to London, watching Movies in the Cinema and much more what Can I say I love company!

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon! This is a very good Question and I 100% have an answer to this! I love our Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the reason we're able to have eternal life, it's thanks to him that we're able to one day return to our Heavenly Father if we keep his commandments. The Book of Mormon was a piece of Lost Scripture which was restored thanks to the Prophet Joseph Smith. It is indeed another Testament of Jesus Christ just like the Gospels. We're here to learn and choose the right path as our Heavenly Father allows us agency which is making up our own mind. I know that by following the Book of Mormon I can follow our Saviour and try to be like him as he came to set an example and we must follow. Through Joseph Smith Heavenly Father Restored his Priesthood and the Gospel and Church of Jesus Christ, without this we would all be lost. So Im thankful for the Church and the Prophet Joseph Smith for giving us back this priesthood and Church as we can now follow our Saviour as he intended us to follow him and that doesn't mean just going to church on a sunday and that Is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love my faith, It's not something I just do on sundays...It's something I do all day everyday. People sometimes say you have good days and bad, I like to say we have good days and Great days! I do a fair bit of Home teaching for the church within the stake, I like to share the Gospel with people and get them in contact with Missionaries. I sometimes help conduct music at my branch because of my professional musical background which gives me much happiness as I love being able to do the both things I love serving our Heavenly Father and Music.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Jason Edmonds
Joseph Smith was a young boy who had a question, He asked God with a true heart and God answered him. He was chosen to restore the Church of Jesus Christ on Earth and restore the Book of Mormon which was lost. He was shown where to find this and received many gifts from God including the Priesthood which without he couldn't restore the True Church on Earth. Show more Show less
