Hi I'm Rob

I'm a husband, father, and work 12 hours shifts in a busy emergency department. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live an exciting, fulfilling ordinary life:) I have a beautiful wife who is a committed homemaker. I have three children who are preschool age. They love to jump, dance, sing in our minivan, and lick the honey first before eating the rest of the peanut butter sandwich. My key responsibility is to provide for my family. I work 12 hour shifts to provide temporally for my family. But that is just the beginning. They need my time. I do my best to balance giving time to them with my own personal development. I used to play sand volleyball, mountain bike, rock climb and lift weights. Some health issues have prevented me from doing many physical activities I love. But I still find great fulfillment in reading, studying, making my children laugh,

Why I am a Mormon

A wise disciple of Christ once wrote, 'If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. (John 7:17). I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was eight years old. I've now been an active participant in my faith for almost 30 years. This is 30 years of hands-on, road-tested, broad experience in the church. I can genuinely and unequivocally say that through living the doctrine of the LDS Church I have been given the gift of peace, fulfillment and assurance this is Christ's church.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a part time job which I willingly perform without monetary compensation. It is not uncommon for me to spend 10-15 hours/week engaged in church related activities. The most rewarding is when another member of the church and I visit a family or individual in their home. Often we have prayed to know who to visit. Many times those individuals are struggling with some aspect of their lives. The Lord sends us there to encourage them, share uplifting scripture, extend invitations, express love, pray with them, and organize the church's resources to help them. Christ spent his life ministering to individuals and on occasion groups. I've found this pattern to be the most rewarding way I can live my faith.
