Hi I'm Roberta
I love to work with people and work in social services, I enjoy helping and serving others, and I'm a Mormon!
I am a Mother of 3 children, I enjoy my family, books, music, walking, and interacting with people. I love to travel and learn about the different places we go. I love a good adventure.
Why I am a Mormon
I cannot identify exactly one moment in my life where I knew the the truths in this Church to be true, but it is more a collection of many small moments in my life that have built a very firm foundation in Jesus Christ and the teachings that I have been taught. I was born into a family where the Church was a very big part of our lives already. My Mother is a very strong person and truly loves the Lord and taught and led her family by example. However my Father was never an active member of the church. When I was 7 years old he passed away and my Mother diligently continued in her faith and taught all 5 of her children to love the gospel. Her example taught me that you can do hard things, but you don't have to do them alone. I have also found this to be very true. If I rely on Lord in all things and have faith, answers come, people are placed in your life to help you and blessings follow. I also know that I have made mistakes, we are not perfect and repentance is a beautiful opportunity to fix those mistakes, to learn compassion, to have hope, and to truly have happiness in your life and be free of those burdens. The happiness in my life is because of the knowledge I have obtained from my experiences, from my study of the scriptures, from the people in my life, and most of all knowing that Jesus Christ did all of this for me and the everyone on this earth.
How I live my faith
I have had the opportunity to teach seminary to High School Students early in the morning and I realized how impressed I am by the youth of today. They have a strength and courage that is a great example to me. I love working with the youth and listening to their insights on what is going on around them, their strength in standing for what is righteous and good inspires me to be a better adult, a better teacher, a better example for them.
