Hi I'm Robert

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up my family was very involved in Tae Kwon Do (Korean martial arts) and theater. I start acting at the age of nine and then later moved on to assistant Directing. After high school I worked a lot with kids. Especially kids with autism. Now I'm starting a new chapter in my life as I prepare to serve as a Missionary for two years.

Why I am a Mormon

On the most basic level, when I look at what this church teaches you'll find that everything taught by this church can only make me a better person. This church teaches to be honest, love your neighbor, stay away from things that could become vices, serve your everyone around you, and most importantly worship and love God with all your heart, might, mind, and strength. When I look deeper at what this church gives me though, its hard to find the words that can adequately describe how deeply being a member of the same church that Jesus organized when he was on the Earth effects my life on a daily basis. I'm not going to try predicting what my life would be like if I never had this church and the blessings that going along with following its teaching because I don't know that answer and frankly I don't want to know. What I do know is that I would not have felt the Holy Spirit and the hand of God working in my life the way I do when I am living by the precepts of the gospel. I have felt God who is my Heavenly Father who cares about me personally the way that my own Earthly parents do, but so much infinitely more. That is really what this church teaches. That God the Father know each one of us by name. He takes interest in our lives. Dieter Utchdorf once said, "Compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God".

How I live my faith

One of the things really emphasized by the Church is doing family history work so that our ancestors can also have the blessing of the Gospel. When I was about 18 I really started getting into it. Now its just one of those things that I talk about and do all the time. I think I mention something to do family history about everyday. Currently one of my church jobs is to help other people do there family history, and its great when someone you've been helping finds one of their ancestors and their entire face lights up.
