Hi I'm Rob

I'm a Mormon. I live in beautiful Pennsylvania with my wife and daughter.

About Me

I am very grateful for my wife and daughter who make my life so fulfilling. The rising sun is one of the most beautiful sites that I have ever seen. My passions in life are family, service, investing,and other financial matters. I am an honorably discharged U.S. Marine. I am currently a full-time accounting student.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because the Holy Spirit testified to me that the Book of Mormon was true and because the Book of Mormon is true everything that is associated with it is also. In addition, the church makes so much sense both logically and spiritually to me. I know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and that they love me and my family. I know that our Savior died and lived again in payment of our sins so that all of us could have the opportunity to be eternally happy with our families in the Celestial Kingdom. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a guiding light in my life and has in fact helped me obtain a new life through baptism and my obedience to the commandments. I am so grateful for my membership in the Lord's church, it has made me the best man that I have ever been. In the name of Jesus Christ; amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by truly keeping the commandments and following the counsel of the Lord's prophet as best I can. I am a leader in a group of 24 men. I help organize home visits to members of the church and the activities that our group does. In addition, I help mentor the members of our group. Another way that I live my faith is through serving others in our church and our community.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Rob
It is true that Mormons are usually very committed to each other, however, we also help others in our communities. On a local level we have been able to help the cities of Sunbury and Williamsport Pennsylvania with their beautification efforts. We painted various structures and fences as well as mulched trees and shrubbery in public parks. We really enjoy serving others. Getting lost in the service of others really helps you find yourself.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Rob
Yes, a husband and wife can be together forever by living righteously and making eternal promises in one of the Lord's temples. The sealing power and authority that is present in the temple seals us for time and all eternity as husband and wife. We do believe that families will live together forever on the condition that we keep our promises as best we can. I know that our Heavenly Father has made it possible for the loving relationships that we forge here on earth to go beyond the grave. Being part of an eternal family is one of the greatest blessings that Heavenly Father has given to and allowed us to earn. Show more Show less
