Hi I'm Robyn

I am a new wife, a newer mom, a housekeeping junkie, and a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. I spend much of my time trying to keep a clean, orderly home where my loved ones and visitors can be comfortable. If I could have one super power, I would have perfect love for those around me, which would help me better live out my dream of being the most charitable follower of Jesus Christ that I can be in this life. I have a degree in music education. I have enjoyed singing, playing, teaching, and arranging music, although right now most of my time is devoted to caring for my little one. I do, however, get to use my musical abilities at church when I accompany the congregation on our hymns.

Why I am a Mormon

I have often asked myself if I would be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints if I had not been raised in it. For a seeker of truth, this question is absolutely essential. The answer I have come to time and time again as I have pondered this question is a resounding yes. The reasons are too many to share completely here, but here are a few. I believe in a loving God who cares about His children here on earth. The Bible teaches of Him, and I know the Bible to be God's word for us (to the extent that it has not been mishandled or mistranslated as it has been passed down and copied over its many years). The Bible itself is evidence that God would not be silent to His children in their times of need. Over the thousands of years of history that are depicted in it, God repeatedly spoke to people on earth and helped them in every needful way. I am certain that such a God would not be silent in a time as turbulent as ours. We need Him, and He knows we need Him. Therefore, He has continued to speak to people throughout history. The world needed a restoration of authority after all of Christ's original apostles had been killed before they could ordain others to be apostles. In His own timing, the Lord chose a man who had the right skill set to be the first leader of His restored church, and He appeared to this man (Joseph Smith) and gave him the needed authority that the original apostles had for leading His church. Because God knew that people would question the authority He gave Joseph to organize and lead His restored church, He provided a way that every person could know for themselves--personal revelation. God has promised us (James 1:5) that we can pray to Him for wisdom, and he will give us understanding of the truth. This is the biggest reason I am a Mormon. I have prayed for a knowledge of the truth, and God has caused my soul to be calm and perfectly assured that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints contains God's true gospel.

How I live my faith

I have learned through scripture study and personal experience that serving others and keeping God's commandments are keys to happiness. I try hard to keep the commandments and be the kind of person that the Lord wants me to be. I really want to be the kind of person who serves others every day. I have known some very wise, loving people in my life who have taught me much about how to make others feel loved. I want to emulate their example, as well as that of the Savior.
