Hi I'm Rob

I know that the Lord is merciful and loving.

About Me

I am happily married and the father of six children. I am an IT professional who is responsible for the internet applications for a retail organization with over $1 billion in annual revenue. My family, my work, running, cycling, hiking and skiing are my passion. One of the best parts of my day is the 5:30 am run when I have my thoughts and the world to myself. I work hard every day to keep my life balanced and to keep things in perspective with what I feel the Lord is guiding me to accomplish.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Mormon family. Through my life experiences I have come to know that we have a loving father in heaven who cares for each one of us. As a young man I made a conscious decision discover the truth of my faith. I began to earnestly read the book of Mormon. As I did so, I began to feel a calmness and peace that I had not felt before. I began to frequently kneel in prayer and asked the Lord for forgiveness of my sins. It was at this time that I recognized in a very personal and powerful way that the Lord loves me and that my life has a divine purpose. I have continued in my faith and in spite of my many shortcomings, I feel a closeness to my Father in Heaven. It is my desire that my wife, my children, and my friends may enjoy these same feelings.

How I live my faith

MY FAMILY I work hard to stay close to my wife and my children every day. I feel that the lord has blessed and prospered me so that my wife and I can provide a safe and positive environment in which to raise our six children. I desire to serve my wife every day and to stay close to her. She is an amazing woman and I feel close to the Lord when I am close to her. SERVICE I am currently the Assistant Scoutmaster responsible for the 11-year old Scouts. We have a dozen boys and they are a handful! We have a great time learning about Scouting together as this is a new experience for me. STUDY AND PRAYER I love to read the scriptures. We read the scriptures together as a family almost every morning, even if just for a few minutes. I love to read about the life and teachings of the Savior. I am reminded as I read them that the Lord loves us and will bless our lives if we will seek him. Prayer is a little more challenging for me, but I am trying to be more consistent. I have discovered that prayer is work! When I make the effort I have always feel a special closeness to the Lord.
