Hi I'm Robert

I Love my Savior Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, and father of four. I work for a Fortune 25 health and wellness company. As often as possible, I drive a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle and love taking my wife and children for rides on it. I play the violin and enjoy playing classical music as well as old time fiddle.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Christian home and have always been grateful for my testimony of Jesus Christ. I can remember numerous times as a youth having made significant commitments to follow the Savior. A few years ago after I graduated from college and moved to a new community I set out to look for a church to join, and I methodically visited numerous denominations and congregations in my endeavor to find the right church for me. During my searching, a friend provided a copy of The Book of Mormon. I read the book from cover to cover and realized it contained the answer to my searching. The Book of Mormon not only strengthened the convictions I already had regarding Jesus Christ, His Gospel and the Holy Bible, but it also helped me complete some of the remaining "puzzle" of life that I had been solving to that point in my life - as if it helped me find some very important missing pieces of the puzzle I had been trying to put together. The most compelling part of my conversion was the powerful witness of the Holy Ghost that I received upon reading The Book of Mormon and as I sincerely prayed to know whether it is of God. That spiritual conviction has grown even stronger throughout the years as I have continued to read this wonderful book again and again.

How I live my faith

Our family enjoys the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have found that placing our faith in the Savior brings happiness and joy. Reading in the scriptures and praying as a family has brought us much closer together, and we have common goals which help us set our sights on eternal objectives which greatly help us navigate through the daily challenges of his life.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Robert
God is perfect and glorious and we are His spiritual offspring and are created in His image. He sent us to Earth to obtain a physical body and to learn to make good choices in order to further progress to become more like Him. Although we are His children, through our own efforts we cannot return to God nor can we become like Him. This is because of two very important reasons. 1) The end of this life is defined by a condition called "death" which is the physical separation of our spirit from our body - thus one of the primary reasons for this life suddenly becomes completely unattainable for us to achieve. 2) During this life we all sin, or willfully defy God's commandments, and sin makes us unworthy to return to God's presence. The separation from God due to our spiritual condition we call Spiritual Death. Therefore, on both accounts we fail miserably as we experience both physical and spiritual death. We would remain forever in this state of physical and spiritual death except for the fact that Jesus Christ provided an Eternal Atonement on our behalf that enables us to be forgiven of our sins, and He also overcame physical death for all mankind when He arose from the tomb on the third day following His death on the cross. The Atonement He provided us offers the remedy to our dilemma and enables us to be resurrected so that our body and spirit will again be reunited, and as we are able to be forgiven and our sins are washed away, our souls can become clean and spotless to qualify us to live in God's presence.
