Hi I'm Robert Weymouth

I grew up in Sweet Idaho! I'm a soccer player and a snowboarder. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Anaheim, California. I am the oldest of 11 kids and I love my family very much. I spent the majority of my childhood growing up in a small town in Idaho. I enjoy hunting and fishing with my dad and brothers, backpacking up into mountain peaks and lakes, going on 4-wheeler rides, and really anything in the outdoors. I've played soccer for about 15 years and some of my accomplishments have been playing on the varsity team for my high school for 3 years, being captain my senior year, and receiving an honorable mention for mid-fielder of the year. I also have played on indoor leagues and in college. In the winter months you will find me up in the ski-resorts shredding away. I am a snowboarding fanatic! I love everything about it: from riding through the powder covered glades, to challenging the double black diamonds, from hitting rails in the terrain park, to catching big air off the kickers and landing the perfect trick. Some other accomplishments that I'm very proud of are that I went to state for track and field for the triple jump and earned my eagle scout award. I also love music, i love to sing and want to learn to play guitar when i return from my mission. I love hanging out with my friends, and relating with them about the joys of life. I love being an older brother to my siblings, and serving others in need.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is a lifestyle that I love. Being a Mormon to me doesnt just mean going to church every sunday and living by a bunch of rules. It is my life; everything that I enjoy in this life is due to the fact that I am a Mormon. I have faith and hope in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The book of Mormon really is a huge part of why I am a Mormon. The Book of Mormon testifies of Christ and it shows us the path to true happiness in this life and in the next. Whenever I have a question in life, i can count on the Book of Mormon to find my answer. I know the Book of Mormon is sacred scripture written by Prophets of God who recieved revelation directly from Him. I have come to know that this is true, by humble and sincere prayer. I know that God knows each of his children personally, and that all He wants for us is the best, which is eternal life in his presence. As a Mormon we believe that families can be together forever. To me this is a very special and important thing. To be able to see my loved ones who have passed on and to live with my family forever is everything to me. Being Mormon really is just something I love. I love serving people and helping them find happiness in life. All of the talents and skills that I enjoy are gifts from my Heavenly Father. My Father and Heaven has given me everything, and I am forver indebted to Him. Being a Mormon allows me to show Him that I'm grateful for what He has done for me, and that I love Him. I know this is God's Church on the Earth, and I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Faith to me is two parts: believing and acting. With my belief in God, i want to serve him the best I can. For this I'm serving a mission. I love teaching people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and seeing the peace and joy that it brings into their lives. Being called by a Prophet of God is very humbling and an honor to me, and I'm striving to fulfill this calling to the best of my ability. I love seeing other people that are happy and enjoy life, this is the way we should live our lives. I know that true happiness only comes from our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I show my faith by my burning desire to share the gospel with others, and by enduring to the end through any trials that are placed in our path. God has a plan for all of us and i want to share that plan with everyone. Serving in the church is a great privelege and honor, and like the scripture says "...when ye serve your fellowman, ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17. I believe this 100 percent.
