Hi I'm Robyn

Lover of tv shows, cooking, reading, blogging, and spending time with those I love.

About Me

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I come from a large family- I have 4 siblings- and love the crazy commotion large family brings. We want to have a large family some day too! There is always something going on with large families. I was married for time and all eternity (no 'death do us part' business) when I was 20! My husband I never lived with each other before we were married because it was something we wanted to save till we were married and fully committed to each other (under God and legally). I guess you could say I was very "young" when I was married but I prefer to think of it as not waisting any time. Once Andrew and I "knew" we figured "what are we waiting for, lets get out life started?" I graduated from the University of Utah in Early Childhood Education. I love to nanny children. And I am currently working at Nordstroms. I love my co-workers and the opportunities I have to talk about the gospel with anyone that is curious.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want expectations of my life and a purpose to daily living. I have knowledge in a life hereafter- a heaven with the people I love. I am a Mormon because some days I can't do it on my own and I need to call on a loving Heavenly Father for assistance, support, and love. I believe in the healing and strengthening powers of the Temple. I am a Mormon because I want to be with my immediate family, Husband and future children for a very long time- eternity to be exact!

How I live my faith

I live my faith my not being ashamed of who I am. I am proud of the standards I have set for my self- even though they make me very different from the world's perspective. I live my faith by talking openly about what I believe and answering questions from people not of my faith. I live my faith by honoring the Ten commandments. Two specific examples are: I am mindful of my language (Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain). I Try my hardest to not work on sunday and I treat the day differently then I do the rest of the week. Meaning I attend church and do activities that help me fee The Spirit strongly that day. (Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy) I also live my faith by sharing the things I love with the people I love and respect. Meaning, if my friend isn't a member of my church I like to tell them about my religion because I feel I would be doing them a diservice by not telling them- i have so much knowledge in this life and I don't want to leave them in the dark. I don't force anything on them, just give them some information to work with if they'd like. Lastly, I live my faith by loving and honoring my husband. I feel like this is one of the biggest way I can show Heavenly Father that I take the covenants I made in the Temple seriously, and not for granted.

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

This is a big one for me. I always say "Heaven wouldn't be heaven without my husband by my side and the people I love next to me." What I mean by that is 'death do us part' doesn't cut it for me. I need more out of life. I need to know that the relationships I build in this life will carry over into the next life. This gospel reassures me of this fact because I have made specific covenants with my husband in the Temple that can't be broken by death. And I know that I will be with my parents and siblings forever because my parents made the same covenants in the Temple when they were married! One big happy family- together forever!
