Hi I'm Charlotte Robin

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I'm a mother and grandmother, currently not working. I'm taking a medical transcription course online and planning to work at home as a transcriptionist after I graduate. I like to read, do things with my husband and family, cook, watch uplifting movies, bowl, play miniature golf, and write. Right now I'm not writing much except in my journal, which I've been doing for over 30 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Although my parents joined this Church when I was little, they stopped attending when I was 11 and so did I during my teenage years. I kept my Bible, though, and started reading it when I was 20. I was praying for help and guidance. Near my Bible was my Book of Mormon. When I read it, I prayed that God would not let me deceived. I wanted to do what God wanted me to do and attend the Church He set up. Some of my friends said I should just go to a church that didn't have strict rules and not have to change anything I was doing. I felt that God's will was what mattered. He let me know in a powerful way that the Book of Mormon was true and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the Church restored by the Lord in our day. I love it. I have found true happiness and peace and growth in the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Please find out for yourself by studying, praying, and living the teachings found in the Bible and Book of Mormon and this Church. You'll be SO glad you did!

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday School class of 12-13-year-olds and really love it. My own children are ages 15-28, so I'm pretty used to this age group. Preparing and presenting the lessons helps me spiritually as well and I love the youth in my class - awesome young people! I also visit three other women at least once a month as a visiting teacher to become better friends, share a message, and just be there to help out if they need it. It's one of the great programs and opportunities in our Church. In addition, I believe in being friendly and cheerful to all, helpful when I can. I'm far from perfect, but I'm trying to live as Jesus taught, and hopefully getting better at it as time goes on.

What is being a Mormon like?

Charlotte Robin
It's like having a second family everywhere you go. Most members of the Church are trying really hard to live as Jesus taught, so kindness, tolerance, and helpfulness are much more common than anywhere else. Jesus' Church is organized to strive to meet the spiritual, emotional, social, educational, and physical needs of all. There are wholesome, fulfilling, fun activities and service opportunities constantly, as well as challenging, growth-producing experiences for all. We work and play and worship together and with those not of our faith, and invite all to "come unto Christ, who is the author and finisher of our faith." Show more Show less
