Hi I'm John Allen Roberts

I Love my family and living here in beautiful Idaho.

About Me

I work in the construction Industry as a sales and design consultant. I enjoy working in the Scouting program here in Idaho where the oppurtunities are unlimited for adventure. I have a son now serving as a missionary and a daughter who recently returned from serving as a missionary for the church. My sweet wife is currently trying to finish a college degree while teaching school.

Why I am a Mormon

How grateful I am , that the blessings of the gospel have been in my life and I wonder why I have been so blessed when so many have been born on this earth and lived righteous lives. I know that all of these blessings have come by the plan of salvation before the earth was created by our savior and redeemer Jesus Christ. We learn through scripture, both modern and ancient that we were all spirit children before we recieved a body of flesh and bones, and a plan was given that would allow us to become like our father in heaven someday as glorified and perfected beings. This plan provided that a savior would come to earth, teach us how to live and love one another., have agency to choose good from evil, and atone for our mortal mistakes. This savior is our elder brother Jesus Christ who loves each of us and wants us to become like him. We also learn that there was a direct opposition to this plan by one of our spirit kin who was known as satan. His plan was to take our agency away and follow him only. One third of the spirits who followed satan were cast out of this pre-earth life and not entilted to recieve a mortal body and thus live only as spirits and will never be able to partake of the blessings our father in heaven has. When we were born into this earth life we became part of a family with Mother and Father taking part in the oppurtunity for each, of us recieving a body of flesh and blood. we came here to be tested and tried in all things. This family is an essential part of the plan that we may have a bond here to love and strenghten one another. Special help has been given to man, those who are worthy to act in Gods name and perform blessings in order to strenghten and guide us. this help is called the Priesthood which has power and authority to bless and bind families for eternitiy which is our purpose. May I share my witness of these things to be true is my prayer in the name of the savior of the world even Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I participate in various oppurtunities in the community to serve others from highway cleanups to firewood collection as well as food drives for those who are in need. I have the oppurtunity to work with the youth of this country and greatly value their potential and insight.
