Hi I'm Rob

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Rob I love nature and I live in the mountains of Idaho. My wife and I alpine ski, play tennis, ATV, hike, fish, and enjoy all that the great out doors has to offer. For many years I worked as an Aeronautical Engineer and lived in Southern California, spending long hours at work and on the freeways. I'm the dad of four wonderful children and the grandpa of nineteen grandchildren. I am living my dream with my dear wife of 47 years and our children who are living gospel centered lives and raising talented families. Our sons served missions and all of our children married in the temple. I served a mission in South America as a youth and my wife and I have served two missions, one in the states and the other in Mexico. We love serving our Heavenly Father just as much as we enjoy his creations.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents, both being members of the church when I was born, taught me the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ, as did some extraordinary primary and Sunday school teachers. I loved my mother, she was so kind, giving and gentle. In my early growing up years, the choices I made were largely influenced by a strong desire not to hurt or disappoint my mother. However, during this time and through the years ahead, I learned that any deviations from the straight and narrow path, always left me with a negative dark feeling, where as staying on the path always produced a positive bright feeling of hope, happiness and noticeable blessings. Through prayer, study and the feelings I have described, I have come to know that what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Known as "The Mormons") teaches and proclaims, is all in accordance with God's plan and is directed by his son Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

The church provides both young and old many opportunities to serve and develop leadership skills. I was given many of these opportunities in class rooms, youth programs and scouting. At age 19, I was called to serve as a Missionary representing the Church in Argentina. After 2 years of service, I returned to the States to attend college, married my high school sweetheart and started a career and a family. We have four outstanding children and nineteen grand children. All have chosen wonderful mates and have been married in the Temple. They are all successful in their professions and are assets to their communities and their country. After retiring, my wife and I served a mission at Martin's Cove in Wyoming, a Historical site where youth groups come from all over the country to simulate the pioneers pulling their handcarts across the plains. Most recently, we have just returned from serving in the Veracruz Mexico Temple presidency.
