Hi I'm Bob

I am an architect from Arizona and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 4 awesome kids and married for over 20 years. It's hard to believe she has put up with me for so long. Being an architect I work long hours, but I think the main reason we have made it work is our commitment to our family and God. Having the same goals certainly makes life easier, relying on each other to help when one of us is down. Temple marraige or eternal marraige also allows us to have a different outlook than what the world may view of marraige - truly knowing our potential and responsibilities as a couple joined by the priesthood of God. I am very grateful to my Heavenly Father for the knowledge of the gospel and His Son Jesus Christ. I pray that I may be a good example by being kind and serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a 'cradle' Mormon you could say, but doesn't really everyone have to find the reasons for himself or herself why they beleive what they beleive? I was young when I had to know for myself. And truth and knowledge can only come one way - and that is through the Holy Ghost. When I humble myself and pray or read the Bible and holy scriptures I feel His influence in my life, teaching me the things I need to know and guiding me on the path that leads me home. Repentance through Jesus Christ is indeed the only way to return home. And Heavenly Father has not left us alone, evidences of His love for us are everywhere. I dare say it would take more faith to not beleive in Him, so great and obvious are His works. He loves us so much that he has given the Holy Ghost to comfort us when we are discouraged, to encourage us to carry on and endure to the end.

How I live my faith

I currently am called to serve the people of my church in a very important way especially given this economic time. I am what they call a stake employment specialist. I can help or direct those looking for work in ways that can really increase their chances for finding work. By a prophet's inspiration and revelation, the church has developed amazing resources to help so many in all kinds of situations. Father loves us so much and knows of our hardships individually. Ironically, I had this calling during the hardest time of my life being unemployed for 10 months. It has truly blessed my life, and I know it has blessed countless lives.
