Hi I'm Rodney Anderson

I'm a father of 7, a family doctor and I'm a Mormon. I grew up in rural Eastern Utah and served a mission to Columbus Ohio.

About Me

 I am a Family Doctor and live in a small rural community. I served a mission to Ohio. I have been married for 29 years I think and I have 6 children 3 boys/3 girls and a foster child. I have 1 beautiful granddaughter. I love fishing, hunting, watching college football and being anywhere my family is, supporting them. I like to ride my horse and dabble in ranching.

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a mormon because I know Joseph Smith to be a prophet of God. I was born into the church but I gained a testimoney of the church at about 18. I have had many challenges throughout my life but I continually go back to knowing that Joseph Smith did pray to his Heavenly Father in 1820 and in response to that prayer he received a vision of Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. There are many things in this wordl that I question but the truthfullness of Joseph Smith bieing a prophet of God is not one of them.

How I live my faith

 I am currently the Bishop of my Ward which I never dreamed would happen. I try hard to serve my Heavenly Father by serving his children. I have opportunities almost everyday to be of service and I try to remind myself that this is an opportunity my Heavenly Father is giving me and its up to me to see how I handle it.
