Hi I'm Robin

I was born and raised in Chicago. I'm a Single Mom, a cancer survivor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a tough city, but my Parents taught us to be kind. We were always told we don't have to act like those around us. I love to laugh and I smile a lot, even when times are difficult, and they're that way a lot! I'm a Single Mom of 2, I've had some tough lessons raising my Children alone, but I'm tough, I've survived poverty, domestic violence, cancer and loneliness. I've been strengthened, I'm back in School, and sharing my experiences with others so they know times may be difficult, but we can surely be happy, kind, loving to others while learning lessons everyday!

Why I am a Mormon

I've studied with different Religions, none of them seemed to reach me, I didn't feel the warmth, the want to learn more in my heart. I went to Dinner at the house of one of my Son's friends who are Mormon. I sat and talked to his Mom for approximately 2 hours, She finally asked if I wanted to speak with the Missionaries, I eagerly said Yes! The Missionaries came a few days later, My Son and I sat a spoke with them and began to study. My Son was Baptized first, and then me. We even began to share the Gospel with My Sister who was later Baptized! I know that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ Restored, I love this Gospel, I know that the Book of Mormon is true! One of the Missionaries gave me a Chapter to read, Mosiah Chapter 18. This was the Chapter that changed my Life! I knew this was Gospel was true! I know Joseph Smith was a true Profit that was Led by Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ to restore The Book of Mormon and The True Church. I'm so Thankful for the Priesthood that has been restored, Our Profits of Old and Our Living Profit today. I still have so much to learn, but everything that I learn brings me closer to My heavenly Father. I am filled with love and happiness everyday! My sadness has been replaced with Joy, to know that I can be with my Parents and with Our Heaven Father and Our Savior for eternity means so very much to me, I want everyone to feel the Joy I feel! It can certainly be had by all, for anyone who seeks the Truth, Happiness, and to be Strengthened, it is here in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm a new Member, I've received my visiting teaching calling. I'm very excited to begin. I've enjoyed the Sisters visits to my home, and can't wait to be able to assist and talk to and teach the Sisters I've been called to help. I also love our Home teaching visits, such wonderful topics to discuss and ponder. I look forward to each new day to give Thanks to our Heavenly Father for lessons, the ability to survive to go to work and to go to Church and worship. I have met such warm and wonderful people, I have been changed, I try to live following the Commandments, I want the change I've experienced to come through and shine brightly to all around me. I've had people come to me and ask what are you doing differently, I sense a change in you! This gives me such a warm feeling. I look forward to other callings, I'm trying to learn so I will be able to Share this Gospel.
