Hi I'm Robbie

I'm a college student, stained glass artist, glassblower, and traveler. I love being with friends and family. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student from Arizona. When I'm not working or studying, I absolutely love reading, working with stained glass and glassblowing, playing hockey, rock climbing, and hiking. Given the chance, I would gladly do any of those for days on end. Currently, I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and am serving in Russia. I now spend every day trying to help people come closer to Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I've spent a large part of my life traveling both on my own and with my family. I've had the opportunity to travel all over the United States. While traveling, I've met quite a few people and been able to talk to most of them. I've found that those who have religion of some kind in their lives are the happiest. Being a Mormon brings me joy and gives me hope for the past, present, and the future. The experiences I've had as a Mormon have greatly strengthened my faith in Christ and helped me make my way through life.

How I live my faith

The best way that I've been able to live my faith is through service. I've spent a large portion of the last few years taking time from my daily routine or from other activities to go out and serve others. The service I've had the opportunity to do ranges from helping teach fellow students to helping people move to completing an eagle project. I've found that some of the best memories I have in life happened while I was serving others. At the moment, I do this through missionary work in Russia.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

A lot of people call members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints "Mormons" because (in addition to the Bible) we believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. This book is not meant to replace the Bible. Rather it is meant to build on and expand its teachings about how we can follow and have faith in Christ. Show more Show less
