Hi I'm Robert Austin Olcott

I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho. I'm a state honors cross country and track runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love track. I train constantly for the mile and the 5k. I've ran in the Simplot Games for four years, The new balance national prelims, and have earned state honors in Cross Country. I am the oldest of 8. Our family is never boring. Were always laughing at something, whether its something one of us did, or something that happened at school. I love them very much.

Why I am a Mormon

When I read the Book of Mormon, and when I kneel down and pray about anything and everything that comes to mind I get a peaceful and joyful feeling. I pray to thank him for my many blessing and about all the hardships I may be going through. And then I realize, Jesus Christ already suffered all those hardships. I am never alone, And I can go to my savior at any time and any place and just tell him how my days going. He is my best friend and I love him. I know from experience after experience that he loves each and every one of us with a love we cannot even comprehend. He is our God. We are his work and his glory. He will never give up on us. I know this to be true. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the same church Christ himself instituted 2000 years ago once again restored. I have felt it every day. I am so grateful for it. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today, and his name is Thomas S. Monson. I also know that the scriptures are the word of God and we can find answers to our questions through them while coupled with prayer.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping to serve others. If someones truck breaks down, someone needs help with getting there lawn mowed, or even if its bringing my neighbors dumpster down to the curve Monday morning, I always feel so much happier when I sacrifice my time to help.
