Hi I'm Brad Andersen

I am the youngest of 4 siblings. I am currently attending dental school. I married a beautiful southern bell and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Like many, I have grown up realizing that not everything in life has gone exactly to plan. I have talents and abilities that make me unique. I learned Spanish while living in Mexico. I love soccer, spicy food and spending time with my wife. Despite set-backs in my education and career and I recognize the blessings that are present in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up attending Sunday morning service in the LDS church. My parents were faithful followers. I have always loved the LDS church; therefore, unlike many of the testimonies out there of how one comes across the church and gains interest through some miraculous story. Mine is simple. I had something great in my life and I held on tight! The lessons learned by diligently attending church services and reading the scriptures has taught me the true joys of life and how to be humble and appreciate the blessings in my life. I continue to be a Mormon because I know in my heart that it brings me closer to my God and my Savior in this life and the life to come. It helps me strengthen the relationship I have with my wife and is a resource in these days against all that is vile and impure.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints provides every member the opportunity to serve in some way. Through the years I have come to learn that one way to measure my faithfulness is on my willingness to suppress my own appetites and desires to provide service. Through the Church I have have taught Sunday School classes, acted as secretary and served as a missionary for two years.
