Hi I'm Robb

I grew up in Idaho and Arizona. I'm a husband, a new father and a physician.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 6 siblings. I was always taught to work hard as a young man. My dad taught me that I'd enjoy life much more if I did. As a physician I work hard to care for my patients and help them reach their goals. As a husband and father I work hard to be a good example and provide a strong faith based livelihood for my family. I love to golf (maybe too much), go to concerts and travel when I get the chance. I'm a mac guy, I also speak Spanish, I love my truck, I own some pretty sweet guns, I've been divorced and remarried, I have an 8 month old little girl who I adore, my wife rocks!, I cry when I read sad stories, I love fixing up my house and I love good food (especially authentic Mexican),

Why I am a Mormon

Eventhough I grew up as a Mormon I have had to decide for myself more than once if this was the way I wanted to live my life. I believe my parents taught me well and I believe my church leaders taught me well. God gave all of us free agency, the freedom to choose and make our own choices. I've experienced the joys of making good choices and feeling close to God. I've also felt sorrow and sadness from making bad choices. Being Mormon has taught me that Christ made it possible for me to be forgiven for my mistakes. The message of Mormonism is simple, come unto Christ. Everything we do and believe is centered around Christ. There are many ways the world portrays religion. I've lived in the world, I've been to other churches and I've even considered not being Mormon. It all came down to one thing, choice! How was I to choose which direction my life would go. Being Mormon has taught me the importance of the Holy Ghost and how it helps us personally feel what is right. It was the Holy Ghost that spoke to my heart and confirmed the truthfulness of what my parents had always taught me. The gospel of Jesus Christ is true, my life is more complete and fulfilled with it. The knowledge I have of God and his son Jesus Christ and their plan for me is real. Being Mormon has taught me this. I believe I'm no different than any other husband and father who wants the best for his family. Being Mormon gives me the knowledge and confidence to do this better!

How I live my faith

I am a Sunday school teacher and teach 13 and 14 year old teenagers. This is a responsibility that I volunteer to do and I enjoy it very much. Being Mormon has taught me a lot about service in and out of the church. In our church there are endless way to serve others and lend a needed hand. Growing up Mormon instills this in our way of life. Those who become Mormon later in life soon learn how important service to others is. I feel fortunate to be in a profession where I can serve others. I also feel fortunate to be married to a wife who also has a desire to serve. I try and live my faith the best way I know how. I'm not perfect and never will be. I go to church every Sunday and try to learn from those who teach me. All of this combined with the love and forgivness from my Heavenly Father makes me happy and helps me love life.
