Hi I'm Robert

I am currently a student at BYU Idaho. I love to eat fruit, play the piano, and I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old. I love biking, hiking and everything outdoors. I enjoy going boating with my family. I have two little brothers and two little sisters. I play the piano. I love watching movies and listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love the gospel and I want to be as perfect as I can by keeping the commandments of God and by going to church and reading from the Book Of Mormon. I know that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ I can live with my family forever and i can return to live with my Heavenly Father. I know that the Book Of Mormon is the word of God and that the priesthood authority of God is on the earth today.

How I live my faith

 I keep the commandments of God, go to church, and try to live my life in harmony with the teachings of the scriptures. I was the piano player for my ward before I came to serve a mission and I enjoyed doing that every Sunday. I love performing acts of service for people in my ward and I just love helping as many people out as I can.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Robert
Definitely no. We are all brothers and sisters of our Heavenly Father. And because of that we help EVERYONE. Did Jesus only help his followers? no. He helped everyone. no matter what. We are the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints so we follow Jesus's example and help everyone. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Robert
The Lord gives us everything that we have in our life. all he askes of us in return is 10. I think that sounds pretty fair. The money that we give goes to churches, temples, and other church stuff. God blesses us for being obedient to this law and as long as we follow it he promises that the windows of heaven will open up to us. pretty awesome promise. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Robert
If some guy on the side of the road came and gave you a ticket for parking.. what would you do? you would be like oh get out of here...you dont have the authority to do that to me. but if a police man came and gave you a ticket it would be a whole different story. Same is true with baptism. The person that baptizes you has to have the priesthood authority of God. Show more Show less
