Hi I'm Robert

I'm a Mormon and I am a convert.

About Me

I work in the software industry as a web designer. I love music. All types of music. I am especially fond of Jazz and Rock. My father was in the military so even though I was born in Texas, I really lived all over the United States.

Why I am a Mormon

My journey to the Church was a long one. It started with a move to Utah where I found a Book of Mormon in the home that I rented. When I saw it, I thought that it was a very strange thing to leave behind. But then it was Utah. I had always turned away the Mormon missionaries that came to my door in California, but having that book in my house was just irresistible. I started reading the book. First I read the introduction about Joseph Smith and the witness statements. Then I read the last chapter in Moroni, and this verse struck me very strongly, "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost." That verse had a profound impact on me. That whole chapter struck me as deeply moving and sad. Moroni, was so alone at the end of his life, and it struck a chord with me. I did not know of my connection to this book yet. I did not know that this was the story of my ancestors. I had no one to answer any of my questions. But the seed was planted and the Lord is patient. I continued to read and learn and eventually invited missionaries to give me the discussions. I have never regretted my decision to be baptized and I can truly tell you that the Lord has blessed me more than I could have ever have hoped for.

How I live my faith

The greatest blessing in my life is the use of my priesthood. It is so humbling to be able to help others both physically and spiritually. It is a privilege to help my neighbors whether they are of my faith or not.
