Hi I'm Ed

Im a husband, father, and grandfather, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm 58 years old and a retired postal worker. I am happily married to one beautiful woman and have been for 36 years. We have 5 children, all married, and 14 grandchildren. We enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, and dutch oven cooking. I enjoy painting landscapes and bedroom walls and fixing things. I love a good joke, both hearing and telling them.

Why I am a Mormon

 Through study of the scriptures and prayer, the Holy Ghost has born witness to me that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints contains the fullnes of that gospel. I know God has called a prophet in our day, just as He has throughout all time. Knowing Gods plan for me has given me great peace and hope. My family and I have been greatly blessed by having the gospel in our lives.

How I live my faith

 I try to follow the counsel of prophets old and new and bless the lives of those around me. I volunteer once a month at a food bank and look for opportunities to help my neighbors. My wife and I are currently serving a mission for our church in Pennsylvania. Mostly we do small and simple things for people we meet and try to bring the Savior into their lives. We enjoy working in the community and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

 They will teach you about our Father in Heaven and His wonderful plan of salvation, including the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and how we can live with Him again. They will teach you about the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His priesthood authority through a Prophet named Joseph Smith Jr. And they will teach you many things that will help you obtain peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come.  Show more Show less
