Hi I'm Eleanor Robinson

I was born in England. Moved to Ohio. Attend school in Utah. Serving a mission in Colorado. Love to laugh. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in East London but moved to Ohio when I was nine. I am definitely a huge OSU Buckeye fan but left my wonderful state to attend school at BYU out in Utah. I saw mountains for the first time when I was eighteen so that was quite the experience. I'm now serving around the mountains as a full time missionary in the Fort Collins, Colorado mission. I come from a family of six of probably the biggest lunatics you'll ever meet, myself included. We're mental, but we love having a good time. I don't think anyone doesn't like having a good time, but just in case I thought I'd mention it. I love rolling down my windows, music blaring, belting out songs at the top of my lungs. I laugh at everything. I think the thing you've always got to remember is, "there is joy in the journey."

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family but I would say that my true conversion happened when I was seventeen years old. I had plenty of experiences growing up in the church where I felt its goodness and truth, but it wasn't until I took the time to know for myself that I gained a testimony of this gospel. I couldn't imagine my life without this church, without the light of Christ. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for everything I have experienced, the good and the bad, because it has made me who I am today. I know that God loves me and I know this church is true. And because I know it, I have to live it.

How I live my faith

I love going to church every Sunday. But I live my faith every day. Being a member of this church is joining a bigger community of people who grow close together through our imperfections and journey to become like Christ. I strive every day to be a positive influence in this world and help others realize their divine purpose.
