Hi I'm Casey Robinson

I'm a sister, a daughter, a student, a Spanish speaker, a future lawyer, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I served an LDS Mission in Peru. I grew up in the church with my family mostly inactive. I have three little sisters and my parents divorced when I was 14. I am studying Political Science with a minor in legal studies and a certificate in the Spanish Language. I graduate April 2019. I am engaged to a man that has stolen my heart and makes me laugh and smile on even the worst of days. He motivates and encourages me to improve and progress on a daily basis. I love the gospel and strive to live it to the best of my ability. While people are not perfect, the gospel is and I strive to align my life to it's teachings.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS church, but being away from my family for school has let me grow myself and choose this church for myself. The night before I was baptized, I prayed a lot about whether or not I was doing what God wanted me to do. I felt so much peace that night, it was simply indescribable! I have loved serving others and strengthening them through my work in the church. It has brought me so much happiness and joy and I hope to share that joy with others so they can have it in there lives as well.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in my church growing up. I have served by leading young women and assisting those who lead the young women. I currently serve as a ward missionary and meet with members of my church who need help. I will soon be serving as a full time missionary for the church in Peru. I try to lead by example and serve wherever and whenever I can.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon temples? What goes on in Mormon temples?

Casey Robinson
Temples are sacred places for the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Sacred covenants are made with God there and it is a place where peace can be found. Each temple is dedicated to be a "House of the Lord" and, as such, should be treated with respect and kept clean and pure so the Spirit of the Lord can dwell there. After all, the scriptures state that the Lord will not dwell in unclean places. That is why only members of the church that are obeying God's commandments can enter. It is not that the ordinances and the covenants are secret, just that they are sacred and need to be treated as such. Show more Show less
