Hi I'm Rob

I am a husband, father, lawyer, Eagle Scout, baseball coach, civic leader and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father who very much enjoys my family. I work hard as a lawyer so that I can help my wife provide a stable home life for our children. I love participating in my children's activities and am excited with their successes - their first hit in a ballgame, first day in school, acing a spelling exam etc. And like everyone else, we share in our children's struggles as well - disappointment from losing the ballgame, finding ways to deal with bullies and all other problems commonly experienced by children.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon helps our family grow stronger and closer together. God created this world for us to live and to live as families. He prepared a plan for us to return to live with Him if we keep his commandents. He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to set an example of what God wants us to do. The Savior also provided a way for us to be forgiven when we fall short of that example. Our family experiences difficulties and trials like all other families. We rely on our faith in Jesus Christ and in Heavenly Father's plan to help us overcome our weaknesses. Just like in biblical times, God has sent prophets in our time who also teach His plan and testify of his Son's divine role. Since Joseph Smith to our current prophet, Thomas S. Monson, we have been blessed with modern day revelation teaching us what God expects of us and warning us of the spiritual dangers that lie ahead.

How I live my faith

I live my faith like many others - some days are better than others. Jesus Christ's atonement gives me hope that although I may not always live up to the standard I would like, I can be forgiven and move forward. Because of this knowledge, I do my best to not let the down days keep me down. My family and I try to set routines to help us live our faith. We regularly attend church and say prayers as a family. We discuss our faith often and what it means to each of us. My wife and I set family rules based on our beliefs and try to live up the principles we have been taught by both biblical and modern prophets.
