Ed Van Buskirk feels called to combat the deception and confusion of the world, Ed sold his successful IT company in 2017 and dedicated his new career to his ministry. Ed has a passion for sharing how the Commandments are vital for children, families and all of society to avoid the chaos, confusion and division of our world and how the Commandments. Using personal stories and anecdotes, Ed is very effective in explaining how the Commandments are relevant for all walks of life and how they pave the way for authentic freedom and joy.


As a cradle Catholic, husband and father and very active at church since being an altar boy, Ed felt he had a good grasp of his faith. However, at age 47 he discovered he really didn’t know something very basic and foundational about his faith. The Ten Commandments. This was a defining moment in his life and it set him on an exciting journey to re-discover the Commandments and all the authentic freedom and abundant joy they offer. In 2018, Ed left his career in Information Technology and founded If U Love Me, a Catholic apostolate dedicated to restoring the much forgotten truth and timeless wisdom of God’s Ten Commandments.


Ed is the author and producer of the “God’s Recipe for a Wonderful Life” book and video study of the Commandments, which have been given an Imprimatur by Bishop, James V. Johnston Jr. of the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese. Ed also created “God’s Recipe for School and Family.” A program for children and their families to learn and live the Commandments.  


Ed speaks across the country at parishes, conferences, retreats and business events providing audiences a fresh perspective of the Ten Commandments, not as a list of obsolete and restrictive rules, but as a gift from a loving God to liberate us from the struggles of everyday life.
