Hi I'm SPC Michael Robbins, USAR

I'm a husband and a father of 5, I've been in the Military for 10 years, I've been on 3 combat tours, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married since 2004, and my wife and I have 5 children. Ive been in the US Army Reserves since 2002, and have served in both Iraq (1 tour) and Afghanistan (2 tours). I work for the US Government as an Ammunitions & Explosives Tech. since 2008. Hunting, outdoor activities, and sports shooting as well as compitition shooting is a few of the things I do enjoy as hobbies, especially with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been one of the many blessings in my life. I'm a 5th generation LDS member, and I do know the church is true. Not being a lifetime member, or being a generational member has placed my testimony where it is; however, I have learned thru experiences such as combat, and family tragedy that has strengthen my testimony in the LDS church. My wife is a convert and has such a great testimony in the church that it is greater than my own. We have taught, and continue to teach our children what the Bible, The Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine and Covenants have when it comes to the guidance of our lives. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints allows us to work together with not only our members of the church, but alongside the communities in which we live. The efforts of community service and donating time to help others allow us to humble ourselves and work together to figure out serious issues within the community.

How I live my faith

When it comes to living true to my faith, I try to help others as much as I can. No matter what time, day, or situation, I have always believed there is always time to stop and take a moment to see if anyone is in need. Being a service to others also can be a blessing in return later on down the road. Taking time to make the right decisions, and being a good example to others can make an empact, no matter how small it may be. Even in my deployments, I had never let my faith falter by studying the scriptures, attending sacrament meetings that are available, and doing what is right. It allows my moral compass to point in the right direction, even in the worst of times.
