Hi I'm Rob

I'm a Mormon and I live in Atlanta, GA.

About Me

I am happily married with 5 children. I enjoy rock music, hunting, NCAA basketball and football. I train bird dogs with my sons and enjoy competing in field trials off horseback.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe the Book of Mormon, like the Bible, to be written by prophets of God and will teach how to live a Christ-like life.

How I live my faith

I try to raise my kids in the light of Christ. I teach my children to follow His example and to rely on their Heavenly Father through daily prayer.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

Rob
The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches that people should bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2). Throughout the world, when communities suffer major disasters and face difficulties beyond their ability to meet, the Church is prepared to offer assistance contributed by its members. The aid helps people who are in need, without regard to religious affiliation, ethnicity, or nationality. Humanitarian assistance has reached 147 countries and is valued at tens of millions of dollars annually. Latter-day Saint Charities is a Church organization that: ■Distributes food. ■Provides assistance in times of disaster such as volunteers to help in cleanup, the use of chapels for shelter, as well as food, water, and medical supplies free of charge. ■Funds and encourages projects that benefit stricken communities. ■Teaches self-reliance. ■Helps people begin small business enterprises in their own homes. Visit the Church sponsored Provident Living Web site for additional information on the humanitarian efforts of the Church. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Rob
Throughout history, God has chosen prophets, such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, and others, to teach the gospel and direct His Church (Amos 3:7). It is no different today. We all need God’s guidance in a world that is sometimes confusing. Because God loves His children, He continues to send living prophets. Joseph Smith (1805–44) was the first prophet of our time. Thomas S. Monson is God’s chosen prophet today. Just as God led the Israelites out of slavery and to a better place through His prophet Moses, He leads His children today into happier, more peaceful lives when they choose to follow His living prophet. We invite you to listen to the words of living prophets and consider how knowing God’s will can benefit your life. Show more Show less
