Hi I'm Robbie

I love sports, and I know families can be forever. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Hawaii and I grew up around sports, especially basketball. I have been a member my whole life, and all of my family are members of the church. Growing up, especially in Oregon, I was given the chance to choose what I really believed. The majority of my friends aren't members but I didn't allow that to interfere with my social life. I played sports all through high school and since everyone knew I was LDS I felt a greater responsibility to live what I know, and not just say what I know. I served a mission for the LDS church in El Salvador for two years and it was the best to years to prepare me for this constant changing world. Now I go to college and I continue to grow in faith, but also in sports and education. My name is Robbie, and Im a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into the LDS religion, I still have the agency to choose what I believe. The reason why I'm a Mormon is because of two simple reasons. First, I prayed and asked God if this was the true church of Jesus Christ, and I received an answer saying that it was. Second, I have felt and seen the blessings that come from living the doctrine of the church and there is no greater happiness in knowing that I can be with my family forever!

How I live my faith

I continue to serve where I can and help those who are in need of comfort. Jesus Christ gave us the perfect example of serving our neighbors and I try to express that same love to others. I go visit with the missionaries and help them do their work in helping others know of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Just as you get to know friends and family, in order to get to know our Heavenly Father, we must talk with Him through prayer. We must read about hHm. Prophets of old talked with Him face to face and so we can learn of Him through their writings, the scriptures. Show more Show less
