Hi I'm Ed Rozeski

I'm a Mormon. I have 3 children and 9 grandchildren. I grew up in Southern California but Colorado is now my home.

About Me

I'm a firefighter, have been for 30 years and I love this profession. When my family was young, being a firefighter gave me the stable income I needed and allowed me the time I wanted to enjoy my family. I enjoyed my childhood but it was a little disjointed and as a result, I lived with several members of my extended family. Because of that I am very close with my aunts and uncles, they were so good to me when I was growing up. After going to High school and Jr College in So Cal, I went to BYU on a football scholarship where I played, graduated, was introduced to the church and met my wife. I enjoy outdoor activities like skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, and they are especially enjoyable if my children or grandchildren are involved. I like to travel with my wife and we try to make a couple of trips each year that take us out of our routine. My routine is not bad though, I enjoy working on household projects, going to work, seeing my grandkids compete, or going to the zoo. I'm active in Church and I did not become a member until I was 50 years old.

Why I am a Mormon

It rings true for me. I was not interested in organized religion when I was introduced to the Church. Over the course of 30 plus years I found many small pieces of the religion that individually did't add up to much, but the cumulative effect of all these little components led to my admitting to myself that I do believe in living eternally with my loved ones and I do believe that we receive revelation in this day and age.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the 'Golden rule' and love others as I would have them love me. I try my best to follow the guidance of our Prophet. I attend Church when I can and I work at fulfilling my calling to the best of my ability. I am not perfect in any of my endeavors and I am always thankful for the forgiving nature of our Father in heaven and his Son, Jesus Christ.
