Hi I'm Rod Nelson

How may I help you learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

Having lived in the desert southwest of Arizona, most of my life, I admit that I enjoy the heat and am a desert rat. As a husband, father and grand father, I care about the importance of the family and the relationships shared by the wife and husbands and the relationships between parents and their children.. The family is the heart of our society and is what provides for the continuing values of the family and future generations.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I have had all my life questions answered by the counsel and directions provided by the Lord's spokespersons here on earth and I know that all future question and concerns can be answered the same way. I do know that that the Lord's plan of salvation for me and all of mankind is found in the Lord's church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That our task is to be obedient he is call, to "come unto" him.

How I live my faith

I am active in my faith. I teach the Young Single Adults of the Yuma area on a weekly basis. I have been active in youth and family activities as well in the Yuma area. It is important to me to know that I can do all I can to promote healthy family activities and family relations. There is nothing that is impossible to achieve if you know what you want and are willing to search and work for it. My knowledge in my faith provides me the opportunity to be free of the fear what life may offer.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Rod Nelson
I and everyone born to this life have the opportunity to live their life as they choose to live it. The LDS Church offers guide lines and choices that we can choose from. There are no restriction to being a Mormon, only those restriction you put on yourself. Show more Show less
