Hi I'm Berrett Robison

I was born in Virginia, ended up in Idaho. I am serving an LDS mission to Toronto, Canada. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the second oldest in my family. I have two younger siblings in highschool, and two others in elementary school. Growing up, I was a military brat. I was born back east, and over the next decade I moved from multiple times before finally settling down in a small town. Like most Mormons, I play piano and some guitar. I also like anything outdoors, particularly hiking or climbing. I have graduated from high school, and am currently in college. My major is either mechanical engineering or something business related, I haven't decided yet. Hopefully, I want to end up in a larger city on a coast. Right now, however, I am taking a break from college to serve a mission in the Canada, Toronto mission, which I am so excited about.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Almost all of my extended family are also members in the church, so it has always been a part of my life since day 1. Growing up, I went to church because it was expected of me, but it wasn't anything special. It was just something I did, but I wanted that to change. It wasn't until my freshman year of high school, though, that I truly started my conversion. I was in seminary when my teacher shared Isaiah 53:3-5, and that scripture changed my life. In that moment, I felt a flood of the spirit. I knew, without a doubt, that Jesus Christ is my own personal Savior, and I want to follow him. I've been working on building my testimony and faith ever since. I've had some trials and hardships, but through Jesus Christ, everything is possible. I know the church is true, and I love and live it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday, by doing the small things: keeping the commandments, reading my scriptures, praying, going to church, etc. In college, I got asked to be a home teacher, which is where you and a companion go out together and visit families. In my case, it was with students, which was fulfilling and hard. I had a very busy schedule, as well as those I taught, but I made sure to go out every month. It was great really getting to know people, and their needs/concerns. I am also living my faith as a missionary for the church. It is hard, but it is the best thing I could have chosen for this stage in my life. I love my Savior, and don't want to let him down.
