Hi I'm Robert

I'm a disabled physician who is now fully retired. I was 57 when IO joined the Church after 30 years of seeking. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am in my mid sixties and did not find the church until just a couple of years ago. I taught at a nursing school when I joined the Church and I used to practice medicine. I am disabled today from a movement disorder but still keep going. I was raised Presbyterian but wandered far and wide even leaving Christianity before finding the church. I read a great deal, enjoy camping and backpacking as well. My life is not limited just because I have limits.

Why I am a Mormon

No other Christian (or other) church has provided intelligent answers for the existence of a deity with the shape the world is in today. No other Christian church has been able to answer what happens to those unfortunate enough to live and die after Jesus but unaware of His existence. Finally because after reading the Book of Mormon, discussing the church with the missionaries and other well educated members, after much prayer and meditation It is quite clear to me that this is the most correct church on the earth today!

How I live my faith

I try daily to show my love and admiration for people as they struggle to combine work, family and improving their own skills in the workplace. Privately I talk about their families and their dreams. I try to remember my Savior's love for all His brothers and sisters and His tender concern for their well being. In my ward I work in the Family History Library. I am also a temple ordinance worker When callings are there if I can, I do.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Absolutely! I have seen and read the words of President Thomas Monson both before and after he was selected as President and prophet and can hear the words of the Lord in his. In studying the lives and words of other prophets of the Church again I see the Lord continuing to lead and teach His children and to organize His church upon the earth. Why would anyone suppose that a loving father would abandon his children? If a mere human father will work long hors and strive to teach his children why do we assume that our perfect Heavenly Father would simply cut us loose to our own devices? Show more Show less
