Hi I'm Eden Wilhelm

I grew up in Arizona. I love to serve people and spend time with my friends and family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sister. I'm a daughter. I'm a friend. I am the middle child. I am preparing to serve a mission in Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a very strong LDS family. I was taught to live the commandments and always strive to be like Jesus Christ. I was taught to pray and search for answers so I might know the truths of this gospel for myself. I know that Jesus is my Savior. He is my brother. And just like my earthly brother, Jesus is and always will be there for me. This gospel is the most amazing thing in my life. Without it, I wouldn't know what my purpose is. My whole life is centered on Christ. I wouldn't have it any other way. The joy it brings to my life is incredible. This gospel is true, and perfect, and has the ability to change your entire life if you let it. I know that anyone who is looking for meaning in their life can find it in Christ's church, if they open their hearts and let Jesus in. He loves everyone, regardless of their religion, circumstances, transgressions, and stubbornness. I believe that He has an amazing plan for each and every one of us. He does know what is best for us and what will make us happy. Whether we decide to let Him lead us down that path or not is our own choice. I believe that every good thing comes from God and that is why I choose to follow Him. Because of Him, I can be with my family forever. And to me, that is the definition of eternal happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week and doing my very best to serve in my callings. I teach the 4 year olds in primary. Their sweet little spirits bring me so much joy, I absolutely love my calling. I am also preparing to serve a mission in Brazil. I know that The Lord has many things for me to do and I can't wait to get out there and start!

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Eden Wilhelm
I believe that faith grows as it is tried and put to work. If you buy a cake and set it on the counter, never eating it, what good is it to you? You don't know the quality of the cake. If you have faith and you don't use it, it cannot be strengthened. Every bite of cake you take helps you recognize it's deliciousness. Just like every trial or question you face helps your faith become stronger. Praying often for direction and then following that direction will build up your faith and help you grow closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
