Hi I'm Robin

I'm a daughter, wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am blessed to be a stay at home mom. I have three rambunctious little boys. I love to travel and go new places. I enjoy writing, reading and papercrafting. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. Both of my parents were converts to the church. My mom, when she was a teenager. My dad converted several years after my parents were married. Even though I was born into the church, I still had to gain my own testimony of it's truthfulness. I can remember when I began to question this Gospel, and exactly when I received a confirmation that all I had been taught was true. The scripture story that led me to my own conversion was the story of Enos from the Book of Mormon.  

How I live my faith

I work with the Young Women ages 12-18 from our local congregation. I work with several other women weekly to teach and remind these girls that they are valued; by their Heavenly Father, by their families, and by us. During their years in the Young Women program they are taught to develop and understand these values: Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, Knowledge, Choice and Accountability, Good Works, Integrity, and Virtue. How empowering and beautiful these values are! If we each understood just our Divine Nature - who we ARE in relation to God the Father, and each other, it would change how we value ourselves, and those around us.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Absolutely! We study the Holy Bible in Sunday School, along with the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the authority to perform work in God's name. No one can give that authority but God. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

We believe our Heavenly Father loves ALL of his children. We also believe, just as Jesus Christ taught, that "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" John 35. Therefore, our loving Heavenly Father has provided a way for all his children to be given the same opportunity. No one can be forced to accept any ordinance performed for them. Agency is an eternal principle we cherish. We believe the ultimate decision to accept or reject the ordinance lies with the individual who was baptized.   Show more Show less
