Hi I'm Robson

I am 21 years old and I have big dreams. I can imagine quite a bit. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a regular 21 year old with typical interests I love friends, I love movies, and I love listening to all kinds of music. One of my favorite things to do is see midnight showings of movies at the theatre, and read. I can get lost in any book you give me, and libraries and bookstores are my favorite places to be. I LOVE adventure and exploring new places. Road trips are the best. I think in addition to the regular five senses, the most important ones to have are a sense of adventure, a sense of wonder, and a sense of humor. Add in a good imagination and you're set for life.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because of my desire to truly follow my Savior Jesus Christ as much as I possibly can, and I know through spiritual confirmations that the truths taught in this church, contained in this restored gospel, are His teachings. I believe that God is a God of order and organization, and as such His church must be organized in a way that provides for the temporal and spiritual salvation of its members. There is no other church like this one on this earth, and I know with all my heart that I am on the path that will lead me back to my Heavenly Father. The teachings of the restored gospel are eternally important, and applying them in my life has saved me from unimaginable sorrow and difficulty. The Savior truly meant it when he said that His yoke is easy, and His burden is light. I know we can cast our burdens on Him and find lasting happiness. Being a Mormon means that I LIVE my religion, not just preach it. It is the true religion because it is centered on Christlike service, Christlike love, and the personal integration of as many Christlike attributes as we can attain in this life. The standards of conduct taught in this church are becoming harder to find anywhere else in the world, but they show that issues like morality are not dependent on social acceptance. God's laws are eternal, and His truth doesn't change, and I know that that truth is found in its fullness in the gospel that was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by the way I interact with those around me, specifically my friends, my coworkers, and my family. I'm the kind of person that feels that it is the responsibility of good men to fight against the forces of evil that are spreading so rapidly across the world. I believe that good men and women must take a stand by actively participating in government, both local and national, by making their voice be heard and using the rights granted us in the God-inspired Constitution of this country. I make sure that I am an informed voter and that I know what's going on in the world and especially here at home so that I can participate in the making of history. I try my hardest to treat everyone as fairly as possible, and to see them as God sees them. It's so important and also very difficult to not judge others by their outward appearances, but to look at the heart.
