Hi I'm Rob

I have been married for 25 years, and I have six children age 23 to 4. I love to play soccer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My greatest joy comes from my family and my service in the Church. I also enjoy photography, playing soccer, bicycling, reading, and traveling. I have been a CFO in healthcare, but am recently unemployed due to a merger. So, like many, I am anxiously looking for work.

Why I am a Mormon

My older sister joined the Church when she was in high school. I joined a few years later when I was 13 years old after some of my sister's younger friends invited me to activities. I had no desire to have any involvement in religion, but they persisted in their invitations. Finally, I decided to go to a youth activity so I could say I did not like it and tell them I was not interested. I did enjoy it, however, and I became involved in the youth and Boy Scout activities at the Church. I still had no interest in religion. I was in the habit of casually using the Lord's name, and did so on one camp out. A twelve year old asked me not to do that because he loved the Lord and did not want to hear His name used so casually. The Holy Ghost bore witness to me at that moment, that I needed to join the Church, and I followed that prompting. I joined the Church because of the witness of the Holy Spirit, and as I have continued to learn line upon line, precept upon precept, I have have repeatedly had the Spirit confirm the truth to me. I find answers to the problems of life in the Church. I find joy in living its teachings, the teachings of Jesus Christ. I find fellowship and support from its members. I strength in its ordinances. I know it is true, and that's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day. I work every day to improve in patience, faith, kindness, knowledge, charity, humility and the other attributes of our Savior, Jesus Christ in all aspects of my life, whether at home, at work or at Church. I have had wonderful opportunities for learning and growth by serving in the Church. I spent five and a half years leading a congregation as Bishop while I had a young family and a full time career, and I know that the Lord guides the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because I felt His guidance regularly. I marvel at how the Lord takes ordinary men and woman and calls them to positions of responsibility so that they and the people they serve can both learn and grow.
