Hi I'm Andy Oblad

I grew up in West Valley City, Utah. I work for SLCPD as a police sergeant.

About Me

I am married and with children and I love being a dad. I just finished college. I have an identical twin brother and we look a lot alike. I have been working as a police officer for 18 years. I have had many experiences there and I have learned that God is real and is very aware of us. I have been watched over and protected in my job by the hand of God. I am very thankful to know this.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Book of Mormon- I know its true. I love Jesus Christ ! He is my savior. I know we have a living prophet on the earth today and that families can be together forever thanks to temples.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving others in my neighborhood and community. It can be helping people move in or visiting with neighbors and checking in on them. Taking them a meal or a treat (usually my wife and daughters make the treats and meals- thank goodness)

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Andy Oblad
The Church doesn't endorse political candidates. I am running for Sheriff in the county where I live because although the Church doesn't endorse candidates, the church does teach that we should be involved in the political process where we live. Its a wonderful freedom that we enjoy to have the right to participate in and vote for the leaders in our government. We need good men and women to lead our government. We need citizens everywhere to spend time getting to know the candidates and the issues at hand and we need them to vote for the person they think will do the best job. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Andy Oblad
Mormons are Christians. I believe in Jesus Christ and that one day I will meet him again and he will know me. I want to live my life the best way I can so that others will want to follow Christ's example. Show more Show less
