Hi I'm Robert

Born in California, graduate of the University of Utah, now living in West Palm Beach, FL. I'm a father of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 16 years to my best friend. I have 4 children; 2 girls and 2 boys. We recently moved to West Palm Beach, FL as part of a move for my job. I am an IT Director and a gadget guy. I love new technologies and finding ways to share them with others. I am a cyclist. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a sports fanatic. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know the happiness that comes from following Jesus Christ. It really is that simple. When I follow the commandments I am blessed and protected. That doesn't mean that I won't have trials...I do. But I know that this life is a test and if I do what I am asked to do that I will one day return to my Father in Heaven and live forever with my wife and children. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at home, at work and at Church. At home, I am a husband and father. I love reading the scriptures with my family and saying family prayers. To hear my children pray for each other when they are sick, have a test in school or just need an extra dose of love is a wonderful thing. I can't take all the credit though. My wife Liz is such a great example to me and to our children. She sacrifices so much for each of us. Sharing my knowledge about my faith at work is quite easy. My colleagues know my standards and show respect for my beliefs. Gospel principles such as the Word of Wisdom (no coffee, tea, alcohol, tobacco) seems to come up regularly and most always is admired and respected. The fact that I can speak Spanish drives additional discussions about my missions to Cochabamba, Bolivia and all the wonderful spiritual and cultural experiences. I have the privilege of serving as the Young Men's President in our ward. That means I have responsibility for the young men age 12-18. During the middle of the week we spend 90 minutes together giving service in the community, preparing the Young Men to serve as Missionaries for our church, learning gospel principles and having fun! On Sundays our focus is preparing for a Mission. Now that the Church has lowered the age for the Young Men to serve as full time missionaries at 18, our time together is even more important to focus on Jesus Christ, his life, teachings and example. Being a Mormon is easy!
