Hi I'm Bob

I grew up in California and have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I am married, have five children and 19 grandchildren. I have worked as an administrator and a graphic artist. I served a mission in Brazil as a young man and three missions with my wife since retirement. I have written and published an account of my great grandfather's involvement in the creation of the Mormon Battalion. I have written two musicals including script, lyrics and music. Both have been performed. I like painting landscapes and writting music.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in Jesus Christ. There have been many times in my life when I have been blessed by the Lord. I feel his love and know that he loves all mankind. Through ernest study of the scriptures and prayer I have felt the Holy Spirit and obtained the assurance that God speaks to prophets today. He directs his Church through his prophets because he wants the best for us.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly, pray in private and with my family each day. I gain faith through regular daily reading of the scriptures. By serving others I feel the Spirit and know that God loves all his children.

What do Mormons believe happens after we die?

Bob
We believe that our spirits are eternal, that they existed with God before this life and will return to him after this life. After we die we await the resurrection. In the world of spirits after this life we continue to learn and grow. Our bodies and our spirit will be reunited in the resurrection in a perfect form. If we have sought truth and accepted and lived in accordance with the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can live in the presence of God forever. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Bob
Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone of the Church and directs that there be no paid ministry. It is not necessary to receive pay to teach the truth. We can see that men may adapt their teaching to those who pay them. Over the centuries this has lead to the teaching of false doctrine and the promotion of principles that Christ does not endorse.
