Hi I'm Robyn

Hi, I’m Robyn, I love being a Wife and a Mom, and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I’m married to my Sweetheart of 16 years, and we have 8 wonderful children. We live in the small town of Strasburg, Colorado. I enjoy taking the family camping (except the packing part of it!), baking, sewing, and learning to garden. But, I don’t always enjoy making dinner. I love to let the light stream into the house and I love going outside to work in the fresh air. I love having the children home, especially in the summers--playing games, watching them figure out how things work, amazed at how they constantly make something out of nothing, mowing and gardening with them, learning and teaching new skills, working together, going to the mountains and museums, and just plain being with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and taught by faithful parents. As a teenager, I prayed to know if this church is true. I received a very calm and reassuring feeling. I knew it was true. Yet, when I was a young mother of many busy children, I wondered if I really wanted to continue with all the activity in the Church. Was it really worth it? So I thought--of all the support the Lord had given me, of the love I’d felt from the Lord, of the blessing of a wonderful husband, of the happiness I have from living the commandments, of knowing that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are real, and that one day I’ll stand accountable to them. Yes! It was worth it. And it still is! How grateful I am to know that I’m here to gain a body and a family and learn to become god-like; to know that I’ll one day face Him. I frequently experience the peace He promises. He fills our home with love and enjoyment. When I’m following Him, I’m happy and His Spirit fills our home.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures each day--they invite the Lord’s Spirit into my heart and home. Because I know that there are spirits in heaven waiting to gain a body, I’ve chosen to have children and stay home to raise them. We do things as a family--learning, working, playing, reading, etc. I’ve personally seen the effect that reading the Book of Mormon has on the children. When we read it, they (and myself) are much happier, helpful, and kind. The Spirit of the Lord permeates our home when we invite Him in. I enjoy the fellowship of other Church members, and try to help them where I can, whether it be in a room full of children, with the cub scouts, or visiting other sisters.
