Hi I'm Robin

I'm a wife, a nurse, and a major foodie...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolute LOVE anything that involves cooking and food. My favorite channel is the foodnetwork channel. I also love dancing, playing the piano, or do anything fun and creative. I am avid at working out and a firm believer in its health benefits. I love playing and watching football and desperately want to improve my golf score. My husband and I are from Idaho,.. Go Boise State!.. but now currently live in Minnesota. We love life and feel blessed every day! 

Why I am a Mormon

My sister and I were both adopted from South Korea when we were three months old and brought to the United States. We were very fortunate to have parents that were LDS, who taught us the gospel. I truly know that the Lord had a plan for me all along and that it was not by chance that I was brought to the family and the country that I was. On a more personal level, I am a Mormon because I know in my heart that the church is true. I am not a master scriptorian. I cannot state every detail of the history of the church or of the Book of Mormon. I still have much to learn. But I know, through a feeling I get in my heart and in my mind, by the whisperings of the Holy Ghost, that the church is true, and I have found great peace and happiness in life by living the principles of the gospel. 

How I live my faith

 My calling or assignment at church is to help with the children of the ward. Each Sunday I get to see around 80 children come to church, learn about the gospel, build their faith, and increase their testimonies. Although I do not get to sit in on the adult classes/meetings, I feel that it is a wonderful blessing to be surrounded by the children and their sweet spirits. It builds and strengthens my own faith and testimony when I hear these beautiful children sing, share their thoughts, and express their testimonies and beliefs about the church. 

Why is family so important to Mormons?

 We believe that the family is the most fundamental unit in society. Our families should be priority in our lives. In a day and age where people focus on careers, wealth, and getting to the top, we believe that true success is not measured by worldly standards or goals but by our relationships with our families and those around us. President David O. McKay has said, "No other success can compensate for failure in the home." That is, no amount of money, fame, or status can truly make up for failure to nurture and develop relationships within the home. It is within the family that inner peace, safety, and happiness first begin. We also believe that after this earthly probabtion, there is life after death and that a loving Heavenly Father created us not with the intent of being alone or single, but to live happily with our families forever.
