Hi I'm Ed

I grew up in Southern California in a non-Mormon home, live in Utah and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a cancer survivor.

Why I am a Mormon

I have not always been an active Mormon and I have not always been a member of the Mormon church since I was first baptized; the laws of justice, mercy and grace apply to all of us. Though I have not always been a member of the Mormon Church, my heart has always led me back to it and told my mind things that it did not before know and understand. I am a Mormon because I have seen how teachings of this gospel change the lives of people for the good, better, and best--even my life. I have learned that God does love me, He does care about me as an individual and for each member of my family, and that He cares about others regardless of their faith or ethnicity; and I know that He is a God of miracles today just as He was a God of miracles anciently and will also be tomorrow,. He is a God of covenants and promises, and that one of these promises is that if any of us lack wisdom, we can ask of God, that giveth to all of us, without chastisement; and it shall be given us if we ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true. If you shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, He will manifest the truth of the things to you because His work and His glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of all of us. I know this and I know of this to be true because I have put the teachings of His gospel and organization of the Mormon Church to this test, just as you can; and He has manifest the truth of these things to me just as He promises he will to you. I can testify to you of these things, and I do, because of the effort it has taken, does take, and will continue to take to keep these beliefs and teachings close to my heart and in practice in my life.

How I live my faith

Currently, I visit with some of the widows and infirmed of my local congregation each month, serve on our Boy Scouts of America unit committee, enjoy doing genealogy and family history especially on my Hungarian lineage. I try my best to live my faith each day by example with humility and love. I pray to God every day as if He were my earthly father only with greater respect and reverence.
