Hi I'm Robert

I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time student studying exercise science. I enjoy volunteering and working as a Physical Therapy tech in preparation for graduate school. I love the outdoorsskiing, backpacking, biking, you name it i'll do it. Most of all, i love my wife. We were married in the Salt Lake Temple and are always busy but find time to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a mormon and continue to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ because i found it to be true for myself. I found safety and peace within the Jesus Christ's church and His teachings. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior. It means so much to me to know that despite my weaknesses and shortcomings he loves me and i can through him be forgiven of my sins as i repent and live His commandments everyday.

How I live my faith

I read from the Bible and Book of Mormon daily and pray daily by myself and with my wife. It brings us much spiritual strength to go about everyday and to do what is right. I serve as a 2nd counselor to the Bishop in the ward my wife and i attend. In the end, i live it everyday and that's how the Savior wants us to live our faith.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

It was needed to bring the priesthood authority, the organization of Christ's church, and all the true doctrines and principles of His gospel back on earth before His second coming. We have always had a Bible which is the word of God. However, when Christ's apostles were killed and rejected as He was, many plain and precious truths were lost in translation and interpretation. God does not want us to be simply guessing about what is true or how we should understand the Bible. That is why when Christ was here on the earth and through prophets before Him has set up His church and communication between heaven and his church leaders to guide us in the way of truth. He has once again established His church and communication through a prophet in our day and restored His church known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The first prophet in our day was Joseph Smith. As evidence of the restoration of Christ's church God has revealed new scripture known as the Book of Mormon. It supports and strengthens the Bible and testify of Christ. it is as the Bible is an anciently written history of prophets and Christ minister among the people. However, the Book of Mormon was written on the American continent about the same time the Bible was written in the eastern hemisphere. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is true.
