Hi I'm Rob

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Idaho and my family just recently moved to Las Vegas.

About Me

I love going out hiking and enjoying the beauties of nature that so often are bypassed in todays world. reaching the tops of the mountains and gazing out down the valleys, its worth it. I'm an Eagle Scout and a life time scouter. worked four years teaching scouts at the best camp in my local council. Surprisingly, besides the scout geek, I'm a computer nerd as well hoping to be among the geek squad guys as I go through college.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon?  Simply because as I've continued through my life and studied the Gospel, It just makes too much sense and feels too right to be false. I've been raised a member my whole life but after so long, I couldnt take it for granted any more. I needed to know. I took it to the lord, and now, I'm not relying on anyone else to tell me that its true, I can 100% honestly say that I know that its true. And the lords gospel is a gospel is a gospel of order. It should make sense, its should have answers. And it does, He gives answers if you only ask in faith, willing to recieve and act on that answer that you recieve.

How I live my faith

The biggest way right now that i could say that I am living my faith, would be serving the Lord as a missionary. I have had many opportunities to see the gospel that has effected my life change others in such a wonderful way. from simply bringing much more happiness to their lives all the way to opening their eyes to the commandments of God in many different directions. I have been apart of services in which people were baptized, oh how strong the Lords spirit is at those moments. Not a face in those rooms doesn't have a smile on! I have been apart of helping reawaken testimonies of those who have been active in the church but stopped coming for one reason or another and just needed a little jumpstart apparently. Its been wonderful helping to spread the word this past while!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Rob
Every day as I walk out my door I see proof that God is out there watching. All the beautiful creations around you as you walk down the street, in the park, anywhere. My most favorite of which is at night however. I lay on the grass and look up at the stars and I can never help myself from thinking about how such wonders came about. It just fits together too well to be an accident of to particles bumping into each other and all of this happening. I've always wondered, If God created worlds without end, is there someone else staring out into the stars like I am, wondering the same? Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Rob
Since the foundation, or restoration of the church, everyone has referred to the members of the church as mormons, named after the Book of Mormon. Apparently the name stuck. Officially the name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Church of Jesus Christ as it is the same church that Christ himself established and the Latter Day Saints because we are in the latter days. But, the name of Mormons, seems to be well known doesn't it? Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Rob
By modern revelation, we have been able to know what it is that God's plan for us actualy is. Not just live, play, have fun and die. But rather, work so that we can learn and progress in The Lords gospel because death is not the end, but just another step in His plan. After death, we go to a place referred to as the spirit world, which is seperated into two places, paradise and prison. Those in the Spirit Paradise have lived well by the teachings of Christs gospel. Those in Spirit Prison have not however. They also have an opportunity to learn the teachings of Christ. In Paradise You will be acting as missionaries to them. After the Spirit World will come the second coming of Christ and the Final Judgement. Show more Show less
