Hi I'm Rob

I'm a husband, a father, and a Mormon.

About Me

The most important things in my life are caring for and being with my wife and children and serving other people. I have learned that life has the most meaning when we look beyond ourselves to the needs of others and try to help and improve their lives--in the process, our own life is enriched in ways we cannot fully imagine.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to know, absolutely know, by personal, spiritual experiences that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored in its fullness to the earth. This restored gospel contains all the truth and the organization Christ brought to the earth during his ministry. True, living prophets walk the earth today and speak for and direct the Lord's work on this earth. God's priesthood power is on the earth and given to every worthy male who enters the covenants of membership in Christ's true and living church. It does not come to us by schooling of man's wisdom or some certification by an earthly educational institution that we can be a "minister" or hold authority from God. It comes through the ordinances of Christ's true and living church and is then empowered in our lives by following Christ--seeking to learn of him and become as He desires us to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving each day to keep the commandments God has given to us. I have made, and strive to keep, sacred covenants with my Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ. These promises I have freely chosen to make guide the conduct of my daily life as I strive for integrity each day. I tell others of my faith and trust in God and I frequently testify of what I know to be true. I have learned by spiritual experiences in my life that God, Our Heavenly Father, lives and is the father of us all. He has a plan of happiness for us and if we learn that plan and conform our lives to it, we will find lasting peace, happiness, and joy. This temporary, earthly state we are in is a proving ground for us to choose with our God-given agency to learn what God would have us do and then strive to do it. The material things of this life are mostly meaningless. We need some degree of physical comfort in order to draw close to God, but beyond that, how we approach life and what we choose to do with our time is what matters most.
