Hi I'm Robin

I am a lawyer and entrepreneur. I didn't get married until I was 50. I now have four-year-old twin daughters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Salt Lake City. My mother was LDS but my father was not. He was usually kind but when he drank alcohol he became very mean. Sometimes it was hard in our house but mom pulled us through and raised us to be strong in the Gospel. I am a lawyer by training. I always wanted to be a lawyer but I was also keenly interested in politics and government. So most of my law jobs have been in government affairs work. I was even General Counsel to the Governor of Utah. I am now a partner in a consulting firm and a commercial real estate firm. I feel very fulfilled professionally. But what was always missing in my life was a family. I didn't get married until I was 50 years old! I now have four-year-old twin daughters and four wonderful stepchildren. My family is now the center of my life. I am a voracious reader and love to teach. Hobbies include golf, travel, and going to the movies. The best part of my day is spending time with my wife and children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a witness of its truth and worth from the Holy Ghost. I was born and raised as a Mormon by my mother but my father was not a member. I did not receive full support for my faith by both parents. I was therefore not truly "converted" until just after my 19th birthday. After praying and asking Heavenlly Father if the church was true I felt the most powerful sensation affirming that it was, indeed, true. That sensation was like a mighty anchor, holding me fast to that witness ever since.

How I live my faith

In the Mormon faith family is paramount. For all those years when I was single I never felt left out or ignored. I was always included as a member of my broader Mormon "family." And even though I didn't have a family of my own I lived my faith by serving others and enriching and enhancing my own character. When marriage finally came it was an easy adjustment.
