Hi I'm Bob

My name is Bob - father, husband, work hard, play hard... and a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Reno, Nevada where as a youth I enjoyed soccer, martial arts, snowboarding, hanging out with friends and staying active in church. I spent two years as a missionary in the Dominican Republic serving the people in the north area of the island. I returned to play soccer for Brigham Young University and graduated with a degree in Accounting. Shortly after graduating, I married my incredible wife and we started our life in the San Francisco bay area, where our two boys were born. They are now ages 8 and 12 and we have settled in the pacific northwest! I work in finance for a large tech. company. When I'm not working, I love excursions - traveling, hiking, biking, kayaking or tubing down the river with my adventurous wife and kids!

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to believe in my faith through study and prayer, and I have seen many others do the same. I believe that through Christ we can live with God again after this life. Life is never easy, but I cannot imagine where I would be in my life without the church! Along with helping me live important principles of the gospel, my faith provides me with eternal perspective and and the assurance that families can live together eternally. I have seen the gospel bring joy and happiness to many!

How I live my faith

What I enjoy most about our church is the opportunities we have to serve one another. Whether it be helping someone move, giving service to the needy, working with the youth or organizing a sports activity, there is a strong focus on helping and supporting one another and the community. Each week I look forward to attending church services and other activities with my wife and teaching my children key principles of the gospel - to have faith and to pray. Over the years I have had the opportunity to serve in church sports, our youth programs, our kids programs, our adult programs and even helped organize a 5K! Living the gospel of Jesus Christ keeps our family close to God and connected to eachother!
