Hi I'm Robbie

I grew up in Olympia Washington, I love to draw landscapes, throw parties for my friends and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Washington and lived there my whole life. However I was born in Pocatello, Idaho. I love to have adventures with my friends. I love creativity and art. I love drawing landscapes from all over the world. I love crazy big cities like New York, Los Angeles and Miami. But I'd say the thing I love most is throwing parties for my friends and family. It's a skill I've really worked at and perfected throughout my years during high school and until now. Any reason for a celebration, birthdays, Super Bowl, General conference, or even an after-party party, every one is invited. I'm currently serving a mission in the France Lyon Mission, which has been such a ride! I've learned so many amazing things and most importantly how to have a relationship with the Savior. I've met so many amazing people who changed their lives for Him, which in turn has helped me see the beauty of the gospel. During my mission though, I've made friends who have helped me in ways I never could of imagined. I love my mission, the french people, the culture, the fun, my friends, and all the wonders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I've realized that Heavenly Father lives and in every way He can, reaches out to us in His loving arms. I am a Mormon because I know that through the atoning sacrifice of the lord Jesus Christ, I can be clean of my sins and mistakes and be pure enough to live with my Heavenly parents. Their love is something I will never abandon or forget. It's incredible in how short a time, I've been changed without seeing, hearing or feeling (physically) my Heavenly Father. The miracle that occurred during my mission, was something I never would of seen coming. The change of heart He enacted within me is something I'll treasure forever. It's something I have to work daily at. My faith keeps me from falling off into the things of the world. My faith is my connection to my Heavenly Father and savior and I will never give it up. I cannot give it up because I need it to live with them again. That is a blessing work living for.

How I live my faith

I love to reach out to others and make them feel happy and successful. Although my heart is changed, I still enjoy throwing parties (for good reasons though). So whenever I hear it's someone's birthday, or something good happened, or anything positive in life, it's worth celebrating. The light that our Savior has shown us is a gift and it's meant to be shared. Whenever I can, I strive to brighten someone's day because we all deserve to have some sunlight. Life isn't easy and sometimes there are storms that toss us into the darkest pits. So whenever I see someone who is sad, lonely, or dealing with a bad time, it's an opportunity to celebrate how good our savior is to us.
