Hi I'm Stephanie Rodak

I enjoy road trips and the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to six children, the youngest two are step-children whom I absolutely adore. I have lived and visited several different areas in the United States, which has really shown me such a diversity in the American culture. I love the beaches, the deserts, the mountains and the forests. I am very patriotic. My favorite holiday is the 4th of July. I am proud to have a daughter in the Air Guard. I have worked as a CPhT for 20 years. I really enjoy working in healthcare, either in the hospital setting, or in a rural family owned pharmacy. I have made many friends, and met many interesting people during these working years. Recently, I was given the opportunity to enjoy being a mother with out the hardships of full-time employment, something I have always wanted to be able to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and joy I find in living His gospel. I have had many hardships and trials in my life, and am sure that there will be more. My belief and faith in Jesus Christ, and His plan for me is what propels me to move forward. I know that there is nothing in this life that I will be expected to endure or experience on my own. I believe that my Father in Heaven knows me, and like an attentive, loving parent wants only to see his children succeed, and to have joy. I believe that he has given us the tools to live our lives in a way that will bring everlasting joy and happiness to all of us. I am grateful to my mother for answering the door to LDS missionaries over 50 years ago, and for her courage, faith and endurance through her hardships. I am grateful that I had an opportunity to witness the power of the Priesthood in my home as a child. I know this gospel is true. I know that we have a living prophet who like prophets of old, receives revelation on the behalf of this world, and its inhabitants. I am so grateful for this knowledge. I am grateful for the plan of salvation, which secures my belief that families can be forever. I write these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I try to live every day as an example of Jesus Christ. I am not perfect, and I do struggle, but I know that my Father in Heaven loves me, and I am never alone. I love people, and try daily to inspire others through the light of Christ. I share my beliefs and way of life with all that I meet. I love the Lord, and am so grateful for his blessings.
