Hi I'm Robert Boehner

I was raised in the Intermountain West. My parents are converts from southern Kansas.I love Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been associated with the church all of my life, but it wasn't until I was a teenager that I becameseriously involved in the teachings and doctrines of the church. Because of my interest in research, I studied the doctrine and was satisfied intellectually that it was true, but it wasn't until I directed questions and concerns, in prayer, to my Heavenly Father, that I came to a personal understanding and assurance of the veracity of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to be a member because of the deeply spiritual experiences that I have had; the revealed knowledge and understanding I have been given, and the great expressions of love I feel from my Heavenly Father. I appreciate my my membership as it gives me a sense of purpose, the opportunities to serve and the gifts of the Spirit I experience. I have been called to be a Church Service Missionary, working in a local Employment Resource Center and assisting people to better employment, or any employment, has had its rewards and disappointments, depending on if the candidates follow or guidance or not. I have discovered that AGENCY plays a significant role in the success of people finding suitable and adequate employment.

How I live my faith

I find that each day I must begin with a time to commune with my Heavenly Father, and to seek for inspiration through scripture reading and pondering. It provides a basis for meeting the challenges of each day, especially as I continue to seek employment after being unemployed for more than 16 months. I find that sharing the gospel each day gives me insight into my own mortality, thus gaining knowledge that will sustain me. Each day brings something positive to my life, if I earnestly seek for it. Choosing to look for the best things, allows one the freedom of finding all things good and noble. Now I am retired, and have moved to a part of the United States I call "home base", I am renovating a 65 year old Cape Cod home on 1/3 acre that had been abandoned for 10 years. Renewing the home has been therapeutic for me as it has allowed me to renew my life through working, and at the same time be involved in building community and neighborhood relations as never before.
