Hi I'm Ed King

I’m a convert to the Church and I love life.

About Me

I was born and raised in Texas. My family goes back many generations in that state. I currently live in Jerome Idaho. I married my high school sweetheart, I work in the dairy industry and I have four grown children. My favorite things are family, home improvement projects, the guitar, reading, history and sometimes politics. I’m a convert to the Church and I love life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the truthfulness of this Church has been confirmed to me by personal revelation through the power of the Holy Ghost. I have had a spiritual awakening I cannot deny. After concluding that there is a supreme God of the universe the next logical questions seemed to be - “How should He be worshiped; does He have a church where His ways are practiced? There are a lot of wonderful people in this world with great religious beliefs, some of them very old and established, but out of them all which one is right? They all possess many good things and surely He loves everyone of them therefore should it matter which one you follow or is there one where He establishes and accepts the doctrines and ordinances - are they His? Such basic concerns as; “Is baptism necessary? How should it be done and by whom? What is the true nature of The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost?”. These things have been confirmed to me through personal revelation by the power of the Holy Ghost. I believe God speaks to all people in ways that are unique, clear and precise - tailored just for them, so they can understand the answers to their most personal and sincere questions. He truly has spoken to me in a way that I understand His will in my life. Because of my faith in Jesus Christ, my sincere desire of wanting to know and prayer I know that the The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints is His church on earth and I choose to be part of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constantly trying to seek God’s will in my life and then doing it.
