Hi I'm Robert Whitney

I am a Husband and Father, coal miner, student. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time father and husband to my beautiful wife and three kids. I work rotating 12 hr shifts at a coal mine as a heavy equipment operator. I am a full time student at our local collage, in an attempt to get a straight day job. I am the captain of our mine rescue team. I work hard so that my awesome wife can stay at home and raise our kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon by birth and by choice. Being raised in the church with my 7 other siblings it is amazing to see the transformation and lifestyle choices of those still in the church and those of my siblings that have left the church. Comparing our lives and the satisfaction we each get out of life, i find it difficult to not want the gospel in my life. The gospel brings such joy, happiness, and purpose that their is no other way to live.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures regularly, at work when i have down time i read the scriptures or any other church material i have, such as magazines or other books written by members of our church. I do not swear, drink, or smoke. I go home teaching to members of the ward monthly, and teach my children when ever possible the benefits and advantages of living a life worthy of Jesus Christ. I help teach and hopefully inspire the youth of our church specifically 12 - 14 year old boys, through lessons in church and scouting.
