Hi I'm Rob
I'm a Mormon. I have lived a few places throughout the United States but currently reside in Illinois.
I am a Dad of 5 beautiful children (with baby #6 on the way), 4 girls and a boy so far. I have been happily married now for over 15 years to a beautiful woman I met while at college. I enjoy exercising, playing and watching sports, and spending time with my family. I am in Sales for a privately held company based in Chicago.
Why I am a Mormon
I have grown up in the Church all my life, but the reason why I am Mormon is that I gained a testimony that what I had been taught all my childhood was true. The Church is led by a prophet of God, Joseph Smith was chosen by God to restore his gospel upon the earth after it was taken away during the Apostasy. The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ and helps to clarify some of the doctrine that is taught in the Bible. I have a testimony of both the Book of Mormon and the Bible and the doctrines do not conflict but rather support one another.
How I live my faith
I live my faith each day as I say my prayers, read my scriptures, and teach my children the gospel. Being a member of the Church is a 24/7 commitment. It is more than a religion, it is a lifestyle. At Church, I serve in the bishopric....and have served previously in a number of callings including Bishop. The bishop is the head of the congregation. As a counselor to him, my job is to help assign speakers for Church meetings, call individuals to be teachers in the adult, youth, and children classes, etc.....
