Hi I'm Robbyn

I swim, play water polo, the piano and the trumpet. I love reading and being with my family. I am serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freshmen in college. I love to swim, and play water polo. I love reading, taking walks, riding my bike, enjoying nature, and seeing all the beautiful things Heavenly Father has given us to see. I work three jobs and love keeping busy. I am on a mission in the New York, New York North mission. I love serving others. I love people. I am grateful for and love life.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon?This question has passed through my mind more than I'd care to admit. I grew up in the church, my parents are loyal, faithful members of this church.I went to church because it was expected, it was just always a part of my life.In October of 2012, a change in the age that a young man or women could go on a mission was changed to 18 for men and 19 for women. I was so excited! I started envisioning myself leaving on mine, and then I realized, I didn't know if the church was true or not. I didn't know what to do. I prayed and read my scriptures and prayed some more, but nothing happened, once again. I didn't have a single shred of proof as to whether any of it was true.Then I started studying the principle of faith. I read everything I could find on the matter, but I kept reading a scripture found in the Book of Mormon, in Alma chapter 32 verse 21, it reads, "faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." I had to read this multiple times before I understood what is was saying. In the gospel, we are taught that before we can have " a witness" of the truthfulness of something, we have to have a "trial of [our] faith". (Ether 12:6) I realized that the problem I was having was not an inability to gain a testimony, but the inability to have faith in what I believed to be true.I learned the most important lesson of my life. I do not have to know the gospel is true. Someday I will, but for now, it is impossible. My human mind cannot comprehend all that God is and does, but I can believe in Him, I can trust in Him, I can "hope for things which are not seen".I have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and love Him and my Father with all my heart. I believe in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I will never doubt any part of it. This gospel is the truth. My Father in Heaven sent me here and I hope to become the Daughter he wants me to be someday.

How I live my faith

I am now serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love people so much and I want everyone to know of the truth that I know and have grown to love. I love the gospel, but more importantly I love God. I love my Heavenly Father who has sent me here to this earth and has always been with me no matter what. I want everyone on this earth to know who they really are, that they are loved, dearly, and that they are never, ever, alone.
