Hi I'm Robert

I'm a runner, a Firth High School Graduate, an Eagle Scout, a Missionary, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

Something that I really Enjoy is running. It's just something about competing against yourself. I love it! I grew up in the town of Firth. It's in southern Idaho. I love to spend time with my Family and Friends, watching Movies, night games, and the game of Rummy are some of my Favorite things to do with them. :) I graduated from High School with 57 classmates, and I knew every one of them! Soon after Graduation I left on a Mission and Served in the Iowa, Des Moines Mission. I loved every minute of it, and I am so happy to have been able to serve the Lord. :) My plans now lead me to go to BYU-I, and get some Generals done, then probably to study some sort of Medical Engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church for my whole life. I am raised a Mormon. My conversion came right before I entered my senior year of high school. I heard a quote that reminded me that I am never alone. The quote is "When you feel like you've hit rock bottom, remember who that Rock Is." The reason that I was 'converted' by this quote was because I was feeling very low, and when I heard this quote, I was reminded that I am never alone, no matter where I am. There is always God. He loves me so much! He is always with me. My testimony is that this is the true Church on Earth for our day. And the reason that I know that is because of the way I feel every time I think of the Gospel that is taught every Sunday, not to mention the fact that the second you walk into one of our many Church Buildings you just feel an amazing Spirit there! I pray every day that those who are searching can come to the same knowledge I have and have peace for themselves.

How I live my faith

I love to read the scriptures! Through them, I find the answers to questions that would otherwise go unanswered. When I Study them, I know that I am coming closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. I then know that I can use my knowledge of them to bless others as they seek the same answers that I have found. Prayer plays a huge role in how I live. I ask my Heavenly Father for help with Everything! The Scriptures tell us to Pray before our tasks, so that God may be with us as we do them. :) I pray for my family, I pray for the ability to see others how Christ would see them. And I ask for forgiveness of my Sins often. I also love to serve others! And one of the greatest ways I have done so is by serving a Mission in Iowa. That Missionary Service has not only blessed me, but I know that my Savior smiles whenever I remember the lessons I learned and the people I was able to bless in Iowa. The smiles on those that I serve are definitely worth my time and service. But Service doesn't end just because I have returned home from the Mission. I am still able, and will continue to serve the people around me. :) That's what the Savior would do. So why shouldn't I? Another thing that helps me to live such a happy life is the simple fact that I love to smile! There is simply no better way to go throughout life! I learned this fact at the very beginning of my Mission in Iowa, if you are able to just smile, even if you are unhappy, you will very soon turn into that happy person you know you want to be! Smiling is the way to live! In answer to the question "how do I live my Faith?" My reply is that I Read and Ponder God's word. I Pray Morning and night, I try to help others and serve whenever and wherever I can, And I SMILE!
