Hi I'm Robert

I grew up in Idaho, served a mission in New England. Now I am a historian and Medical Lab Technologist in Illinois.

About Me

I served in the Army Medical Corps for 11 years, and attained a Master's degree in Military History. I enjoy reading and raquetball.

Why I am a Mormon

Firstly, because it is the religion of my ancestors, Mormon Pioneers who sacrificed everything for their faith. Second, because my Mother taught me the principles of the Gospel by both word and deed. Third, because my own life has been richly blessed by adherence to its standards and teachings. I have studied and prayed throughout my life, and reflected long on the principles of have been taught, and can testify that the Spirit of God has confirmed their truth to me indiviidually.

How I live my faith

I have been married for 25 years and have 5 children. We pray together, play together and enjoy worshiping together. My children have all benefited immensely from the Church's youth programs. My oldest daughter is serving a mission in Ecuador. I serve as the clerk of our local congretation and also teach the adult Sunday School class. I also enjoy Temple worship iand doing family history. I have spent many years working with the young men of the Church, including as Scoutmaster, Cubmaster, and Stake Young Men's President. I am an avid student of the scriptures, and particularly love the New Testament.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Perhaps no other religion fully embraces the teachings of the Bible like the Mormons. In fact, there are many passages of scripture that do not find their fulfillment in any other Christian faith. The Bible is a record of prophecy through the course of many centuries, and what could be more consistent than the continuation of those revelations to our present day. Every book of Mormon scripture in addition to the Bible testifies to the Bible's divine origin, and affirms that Jesus is the the Son of God, the Savior of the World. Show more Show less
