Hi I'm Robert Stephen

I'm a Mormon. A new convert.

About Me

I am 55 years old and a mail carrier for the Post Office. I love to read, love animals, especially my two Labs. I was Baptized on April 3, 2009. Single, never married with no children, but have gained a whole family through the Church. Simply love being a member.

Why I am a Mormon

I new nothing about the Mormon faith other than the fact that they did not drink or smoke and they paid tithe. I had an urge to get on Mormon.org and order the Book of Mormon. Also visited with a couple of Missionaries on-line. I actually ran into a couple one day on my job and asked to visit with them. From that point it was pretty fast. I did just what they told me to do. Read, Pray if this is all true and go to church. I got my answer that it was true without a doubt and was Baptized 3 weeks later. Way Cool. I love the peace and the joy that it brings to me and the complete faith and knowledge that there is a God and also a Prophet on earth today.

How I live my faith

I made a promise to myself that when I joined I would be as active as possible. I have 2 callings. I am on the Activities Committee and am a Ward Missionary. Also am a home teacher. I make it a point to go to Church each Sunday, to take part in all the events and just be active. Also make time to read in the Book of Mormon each day and to say my prayers.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Robert Stephen
My testimony is the story of my conversion to the Church. But it is something that keeps growing as I learn and continue to be active. It is something that all members have though. It is one of the neat things I learned about the members. Even for people that were born into the Church, each person had their own conversion, their own "it" moment when they knew it was true. It has been a great pleasure for me to hear some of these stories and to hear their testimonies. It helps my own to grow stronger. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Robert Stephen
Now this is a very neat thing to be able to do. I have been able to do proxy Baptisms for my parents and 1 Grandmother and have had other relatives done for me. It is a way for my parents and family to be able to accept the Gospel and for us to be together again someday. The day I got to be the proxy for my father was an amazing day. I know that he was waiting for me to do this for him and the spirit in the Temple that day was awesome. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Robert Stephen
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. That he is our Saviour and that he gave his life for us through the Atonement. Such a great gift. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Robert Stephen
When I first started meeting with the Missionaries they told me that to know if it was true I would have to find out for myself. But it is pretty simple really. Read in the Book of Mormon, Pray with a sincere heart and faith to know if it is true and go to Church to find out. I did these 3 things and was left with no doubt. I not only think these thing are true, I know with all my heart that they are true. Show more Show less
