Hi I'm Robin

I live in Arizona. I am a wife and mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up as the 4th of nine children. I love having many siblings. I pole vaulted in high school and community college. My husband pole vaulted as well and went to BYU on an athletic scholarship. We have 4 children who are absolutely wonderful. I enjoy drawing, singing, and working out. I blog to keep a sort of journal of my family's growth. I enjoy girl's nights out with my friends and date nights with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have always felt that it was a very important part of my life. My faith has grown in small increments throughout my life and I have felt the peace and joy and happiness that living it's principles has brought me. I do not feel that I am missing out on worldly things, rather that I am protected and blessed by living the gospel. I feel joy knowing that I can give my children that same sense of peace, joy, and purpose in their lives by sharing with them the love and plan that their Heavenly Father has for them.

How I live my faith

In our church I lead singing time with the children. I love getting to know the children and hearing them sing. We sing Primary Songs (they can be found on the lds.org website) each sunday and once a year we perform for the congregation. The primary songs teach simple gospel truths and bring the spirit as we learn them. It is so fun to see the kids get excited about these songs and feel the spirit of the things they teach. It is a wonderful feeling to hear the 3 year olds all the way to 11 year olds sing together of the things they have been learning all year. The other way I live my faith is by supporting my husband as he serves in the church. He works with the young men as they work through the scout program. Sometimes it takes some of his time from us, but I know that what he is doing is important, that it is where the Lord wants him, and that he is helping in those boys lives and helping in our community.
