Hi I'm Robyn

I was raised as a Marine brat before becoming an Army Brat when my father transferred forces. I'm a Latter-Day Saint (AKA Mormon)!

About Me

I'm the child of divorced parents. My father has been in the military most of his life and thus we moved, A LOT. I became quite good at public speaking, it was either that or have no friends, because of changing schools frequently. I have enjoyed playing tackle football on a boy's team, wrestling, and playing soccer. My freshman year in high school I made it as the defensive captain of the varsity girl's soccer team. I also take great pride in doing well at school which everyone says is because of how much I love to read. I take my kindle with me everywhere but feel there is something special about turning the last page of a real book and finishing a story. I really love sci-fi/fantasy genres but of late have been reading astrophysics novels by authors like Stephen Hawking. I'm starting college but have deferred for 18 months to go on a mission! My declared major is Biochemistry. I decided on this after I got hit by a truck while riding my bicycle and began to learn, in depth, about the body. I plan to become a tissue engineer some day. Meanwhile I am employed as a puppy whelper... meaning I help with the birthing and raising of puppies before they go to their forever homes.

Why I am a Mormon

My Father and his side of the family have persecuted me and my beliefs since I was a little girl. Calling me stupid, ignorant, blind, so on and so forth as well as swearing and many other hurtful things. I never understood this for I never yelled or persecuted them for not believing in a God or supreme being of any kind. I was introduced to many religious faiths by my family and almost all of them were okay but there was something that just didn't feel right in them. I decided to read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover and pray about when I was challenged to do so by someone I love. At the end it said to pray to know if these things that are written were true and I did. After much trial and a ton of prayer I have come to know that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is taught in its fullness by the teachings and revelations of the modern day prophets.I am a daughter of God, and He loves and I love him. I act as a witness to Him in all times, all places, and in everything I do. I know he has an eternal plan for all of His children and that Christ's atonement and resurrection is the keystone to that plan. Without it we'd never be able to return to God's presence for we would not be able to repent of our sins. I know the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ just as the Bible is. I believe and I know these things to be true and that is why I am proud to call myself a Latter-Day Saint.

How I live my faith

There was a man asking for spare change in a busy downtown area and I drove by not thinking anything of it as there are more and more of these people every year. When I came back about 15 minutes later I saw he was using the spare change he had been given to refill people's parking meters! It's moments like that which remind me not to judge a book by its cover. I choose everyday to practice loving people unconditionally just as the Lord, Jesus Christ, commands us to when he says, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:30-31) When I go to church, to work, or even to the gym I keep this scripture quote in my heart. It reminds me of Christ's love and everlasting atonement that, if you should accept it, grants you eternal life and exhalation.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

The answer is simple. We believe that when we die our spirit goes to "spirit heaven" to await the resurrection. We believe that Christ will come again and when he does we will regain our mortal bodies made whole and perfected in what we call the second coming of Christ. Show more Show less
