Hi I'm Bob

I spent summers on my fathers farm in SE Idaho, I learned to solve problems with my hands, I am now an engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a father of 5 children. I work for an engineering company designing storage products for the internet age. I grew up in the Western United States loving the outdoors. I became interested at an early age in motorcycles. Being close to Mexico, I've continued that interest by going on a yearly week-long rides in Baja Mexico. As part of group that travels down, we take down clothes & toys every year to donate to those who could use them. I enjoy sharing that interest will all of my children. Two have joined me on Baja Mexico trips and one has opened a motorcycle repair shop.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel we only have one life on earth and it isn't about me. It is about helping our fellow men one at a time. I've always had a sensitive heart for those less fortunate and found that practicing Mormonism provided many ways to help others. I feel closest to Jesus Christ when I am helping others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I live my faith by reading the scriptures everyday. By becoming involved in the community with the Boy Scouts, Habit for Humanity, and local social agencies, etc. I live my faith by putting God first, then family, then others.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Some who have heard "stories" about Mormons and not actually met one or learned from an accurate source may be influenced to think Mormonism is a cult. The official name of the church is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The name itself describes that the members of the church "seek" after Christ. If one objectively looks into the tenets of the church, they will realize that we believe in the Ten Commandments, serving our fellow-men, "turning the other cheek", etc. We are actually Christians in every positive sense!
