Hi I'm Robb

I'm a moderate Mormon that works in commercial real estate and likes to enjoy the cultures of the Live Music Capital of the World.

About Me

I think one should enjoy life while not working, I am a single parent and like to enjoy my 3 kids. I like to experience more out of life. For me, self-worth is not a product of what I do for a living, rather it is manifested in what I do. I love conversations that investigate why we do the things we do, I'm curious, a questioner and I love to learn. I have lived in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona though I consider home to be Dubai in the United Arab Emirates where I grew up. I love to travel and be exposed to different cultures and atmospheres. Music is very important to me. I find a release from the pressure of life through music and I continue to hold on to the sounds I grew up with (alternative music from the 1990s)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fourth generation member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My ancestors had the chance to learn about and join the church. That answers why I have been a Mormon, but not really why I am currently a Mormon. Growing up in the church was a benefit to me since I had the opportunity to interact with amazingly faithful members. I grew up in a non-christian area (Dubai, United Arab Emirates) in the Middle East. I was exposed to the cultures and religions of the world growing up. I did not have a testimony of my own at the time, but there were a few people I was exposed to that I admired immensely and had a strong testimonies. In effect, my attitude during my youth was full of doubts related to the Mormon faith, but I kept coming back to the fact that I believed the core principles of the gospel were true. Although I was unaware of the process, I was building my own faith during my youth. In my late teenage years I had yet to gain a real personal understanding of what I believed so I found myself drifting away for a couple years. I think it is so important to question what you've always been told, it is only by asking questions that we can learn answers. The problem lay in how I went about questioning. I looked for truth in every place but the one I had been given from the start. Although I felt lost and confused, the memory of the peace I had felt growing up in the church never left me. When I looked to find where I belonged finally, I humbled myself and opened my heart enough to investigate my own church. I am Mormon because I see the LDS gospel as a beautiful work that guides people to live in a good manner. I am proud to be a member of this church because it helps me live a better life, one where I can look at what I'm doing and see how I can improve it. It gives me a community of fellow believers who can help me be better, whether that's by helping me or giving me opportunities to help and serve them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in mostly quiet ways through service. I think I live my faith by being the best person I can be. I continually strive to share the things I've mastered, and perfect the things I have not. I have enjoyed doing family history because I like to make the connections of the historical travels of my ancestors and I want them to have the chance to receive all of the wonderful blessings that come from being a member of this religion. There is this underlying belief that we can always do better. That we can always improve. That there is always something more to be done. Someone to love. Someone to help. Something.
