Hi I'm Rob

I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am a graphic artist. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of two with one on the way and also two adopted boys that my wife brought from a previous marriage. All four children are boys, not sure what the one on the way is just yet. I have served in the national guard, in a special forces support group airborne. I currently work at GolfTEC as a graphic designer, creating web and print materials. I also do some of the photography. As a hobby I am creating a comic book with a Christian tone. My wife and I have seen a few of our favorite bands perform, the Fray, U2, and Coldplay. We also enjoy watching action and suspense movies together mostly. The last movie we saw and liked at the theater is "Cowboys and Aliens." Some of my other favorites include Gladiator, Braveheart, Star Wars, Transformers, Captain America, X-Men, Troy...and the list goes on. We finished watching all of the "Lost" season together, as well as "Prison Break," and "24."

Why I am a Mormon

I know that our church is the same gospel that Jesus organized when he came, built on the foundation of the prophets and apostles as the bible says. I know that God still reveals truth in our day and has given us the book of Mormon written by prophets who testify of the same Christ as the bible prophets from the Eastern part of the world, but establishing a second witness to prevent uncertainty of doctrine. Together these books define Christ's pure gospel undefiled by men's assumptions and logic. We are guided by the holy spirit promised by Christ before he left. It is the holy spirit that has confirmed the truth of the things I've read and studied.

How I live my faith

This is something I am working on, I attend church, but I feel like I need to do a better job reading the scriptures more regularly. I feel the spirit when I read the scriptures and keep the commandments. I try to treat others with respect and be an honest and fair person. I like to take opportunities to serve. We say our prayers, but there is always room for improvement. We do our best to have a family night once a week, which is one of the things I enjoy most, just spending time with the family which is what our faith is really about, family.

Who are the Mormons?

We are nicknamed the Mormons after the Book of scripture we also use along with the bible, called the Book of Mormon. Mormon was a prophet who helped compile the writings of other prophets as well as his own from prophets who were in the new world or the western part of the world. The bible contains writings of prophets from around Jerusalem or the eastern part of the world, we use both testaments of the Same Christ to better know pure doctrine. Our official name is the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints because we are Christian. Christ is the center of our faith. Show more Show less
