Hi I'm Robyn

I'm a wife & a mother. I inherited a need to work hard & keep busy. I'm a smiler and...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My roots, my family and my heart are in Utah, but I'm living in and loving Arizona! I am a proud mother of 4 beautiful adults. Interacting with them as adults is bringing so much happiness to my life. I love watching the learning process of making choices, living the good and the bad consequences and then, hopefully, learning from that process. I am married to a "real man", who takes providing for his family seriously, who loves his children and would do anything for them and who loves to learn and to teach. I love being busy doing good things. I come from a long line of hard workers and feel the need to pitch in and get the job, whatever it is, done! I love volunteering at the schools. One of my favorite volunteer positions was to be a "uniform mom" for the marching band...love those band kids! I enjoy taking care of my home and my family. I love doing laundry...I know...crazy...but true! Very satisfying! If I ever have a spare moment, I love watching movies, or listening to music with my family OR reading a good book...hmmmm...what shall I read next? My greatest passion in life is music. I love to sing, whistle, occasionally brush off the old flute and try a tune, and most of all, to be "taken away" by a beautiful piece of music! Music blesses everything I do in life. I always have some tune in my mind (literally always)! I just bust out with lines from songs on a regular basis! Did you know there's a song for every little thing we do in life...there is!!

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon, because I was born into a Mormon family! I remain a Mormon, because I believe that the fullness of Gospel of Jesus Christ is contained within the Doctrines and Ordinations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love the opportunities for growth that our church offers me as an individual. There are programs in place that strengthen and uplift me. I have been given opportunities to grow in my ability to lead and to teach through various callings over the years. I have been given the opportunity to learn as I attend regular meetings on a weekly basis. I appreciate the fact that our church has a lay ministry, in that "we" are the ministers. We serve one another. We teach one another. We learn from one another. Our leaders are our neighbors. They are not paid for their countless hours of service. They are not professional preachers. They are my brothers and sisters in the Gospel and that makes a difference to me. We are all in this effort together, lifting each other to accomplish greater things while on this Earth. I love knowing that I have a Father in Heaven who is real, who I can go to and speak with and be inspired by. I love knowing that Jesus Christ, understanding our Father in Heaven's plan, came to Earth and died so that I might live forever. This knowledge brings me peace and gives me purpose.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the daily things I spend my time doing. Mormons are busy people, busy doing good things. I am currently serving in the Young Women's organization in our ward and LOVE it! Our girls (ages 12 to 18) bless my life and are great examples of righteous and valiant youth striving on a daily basis to turn away from evil and bring themselves and those around them closer to Jesus Christ. I love the association my callings give me with lovely women and men who show great faith every day of their lives. All of the callings that I have had in my life have blessed me in some way. They are not always easy, but they have helped to shape who I am. When serving in our women's organization, the Relief Society, I find that my appreciation for the strength of good women increases. When serving in the Primary, an organization for our children, I see how the simple faith of a child can be a powerful thing! When I teach, I learn. As I participate in learning, I grow. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints provides these opportunities to me and I am so grateful to have a life that is so full of so many good things.
