Hi I'm Robin

I grew up in the midwest, went to college in the west, and now live in the deep south. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy decorating, cooking, sewing, and anything crafty. I love to blog. I am a domestic engineer by trade and have been married five years to my best friend.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school I wanted to know for myself if this church was what it claimed, to be the only true church on the earth. In the Book of Mormon (Moroni 3:4-5) we are told if we study something out in our minds, and then pray to know if it is true, the Lord will tell us the truth of all things through the Holy Ghost. I read the Book of Mormon again and prayed to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet. I didn't have a bolt of lightening or angel appear to me but I did get a warm feeling that overcame me that testified it was true. That same feeling has testified to me many times different aspects of the gospel. I am a Mormon because I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the 7-8 year old Primary class. I have seven children, all girls, in my class. This is particularly a fun age as they are preparing for their baptisms. (Children can get baptized as early as age 8.)

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

My husband and I were married for "time and all eternity" in the Nauvoo, Illinois Temple on 23 Dec 2005. We chose to get married in a Latter-day Saint temple so that we would be sealed as husband and wife for eternity by someone holding the proper authority. This was especially important to us as I have a chronic, terminal disease. It is comforting to know that if and when either of our time is over here on earth, we will still be together as a family forever. Show more Show less
