Hi I'm Rob

I was born in Sheffield, England; I'm a geek, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My hobbies include video games, football and guitar. I have recently finished my A-levels studying Maths, Physics and Chemistry, and I hope to continue my studies of Physics into University. I enjoy playing and watching a wide range of sports, despite playing them terribly, I still try my best and it helps me make and strengthen friendships. Music is also a big part of my life, as simply one song can change your mood and either uplift and inspire you or fill you with emotion. I have been learning the guitar for the last 2-3 years, and I also enjoy singing, whether others enjoy my singing or not, I still do it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am very fortunate to have been born to parents already in the church. As I progressed in my youth, my testimony was based on theirs. At the age of 14, I wanted to find out for myself if it was true, so I set about reading the Book of Mormon all the way through. In the last chapter, Moroni chapter 10, it reads: "When ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." I decided to act on Moroni's promise, and pray if the book was true. I received an answer, and I know of a surety that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Therefore, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and he translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God. Ever since then, my testimony has grown on various topics, and I hope it continues to grow through the rest of my life.

How I live my faith

The most important thing I do in my ward is being a friend. I try to seek those who feel left out and get them involved, and I try to lift people's spirits if they feel down. I have not had a specific responsibility in my ward yet, but when I do receive one, I am willing to fulfill that responsibility. At school and around the community, I try my best to be a friend, a peacemaker, and generally a good example. I may not be perfect at it, but others notice how I am different, and that gives me the opportunity to talk about the church, and how it is the focal point of my life.
