Hi I'm Robert Zilm

I grew up in Arizona, I played Football, and Wrestling, I work construction, and I´m a Mormon.

About Me

WELL, I AM A 20 YEAR OLD, WHO LOVES LIFE!! I HAVE PLAYED SPORTS MY ENTIRE LIFE FROM THE AE OF 5 UP UNTIL I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL. AFTER GRADUATING I DECIDED TO SERVE A MISSION FOR THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS! AND I LOVE IT! I GREW UP BEING TAUGHT BY MY LEADERS MY HEROES THAT I NEEDED TO WORK HARD, AND JUST GET STUFF DONE! I GUESS THATS WHY I HAVE REALLY LEARNED HOW TO WORK. I WORK CONSTRUCTION AND IN MY FREE TIME I JUST LOVE TO WORK, HAVE FUN WITH MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND YEAH!!! I HAVE 2 BROTHERS AND 3 SISTERS, ONE IS MY TWIN AND YEA ITS AWESOME!!

Why I am a Mormon

WELL, I WAS BLESSED TO GROW UP IN THE CHURCH MY ENTIRE LIFE...BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN THAT I DONT HAVE MY OWN CONVERSION STORY. I TO HAD TO DO WHAT THE BELOVED PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH DID AND ASK GOD LIKE IT SAYS IN JAMES 1:5. AND I TELL YOU I DID IT AND I GOT AN ANSWER THAT THIS IS HIS CHURCH, THE CHURCH THAT GOD ESTABLISHED! I STUDIED A LOT, I READ THE BOOK OF MORMON COVER TO COVER. AND I AM A MORMON BECAUSE I KNOW IT PERSONALLY AS THE TRUE CHURCH. I KNOW THAT GOD LIVES, THAT HE SENT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST TO SAVE THE WORLD. I KNOW THAT THROUGH THE LOVE OF CHRIST WE CAN BE FORGIVEN OF OUR SINS WHEN WE ASK FOR HIS FORGIVENESS. I KNOW THAT GOD AND JESUS CHRIST APPEARED TO JOSEPH SMITH IN THE SACRED GROVE ON THAT SPRING MORNING AND GAVE HIM A WORK THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY MAN, BUT WITH GODS HELP HE RESTORED THE TRUE CHURCH AND THE TRUE POWER OF GOD TO BAPTIZE, CONFIRM SOMEONE A MEMBER OF THE TRUE CHURCH, I KNOW THAT TODAY WE HAVE A LIVING PROPHET JUST LIKE MOSES, OR NOAH, AND THAT HIS NAME IS THOMAS S MONSON. THAT THROUGH HIM GOD TALKS. AND REVEALS WHAT HE WANTS HIS CHILDREN TO DO! IT AMAZING!!! I KNOW THAT THE BOOK OF MORMON AND THE BIBLE ARE THE WORDS OF GOD, THAT THROUGH STUDYING THEM BOTH DAILY WE CAN RECEIVE ANSWERS TO OUR MANY QUESTIONS. I KNOW THAT I CAN HAVE AN ETERNAL FAMILY, AND THAT I WILL BE WITH MY PARENTS, BROTHER AND SISTERS, AND WITH MY OWN FAMILY AGAIN AFTER THIS LIFE, THAT IT IS NO THE END WHEN SOMEONE PASSES AWAY. I KNOW THAT GOD HAS A PLAN FOR EACH AND EVERYONE OF US AND THAT HE LOVES US! I LOVE THIS GOSPEL, THIS CHURCH, I KNOW THESE THINGS TO BE TRUE BECAUSE I RECEIVED AN ANSWER. I HAVE SEEN MIRACLES IN MY OWN LIFE I HAVE. I KNOW THAT THE PRIESTHOOD POWER IS THE POWER OF GOD AND THAT IT CAN HEAL THE SICK, OR MAKE THE BLIND SEE, OR EVEN RAISE THE DEAD! I KNOW IT, AND THAT THROUGH THIS CHURCH WE CAN SEE MIRACLES, I KNOW THIS AND I TESTIFY OF THIS IN THE NAME OF OUR SAVIOR, EVEN JESUS CHRIST, AMEN.

How I live my faith

WELL, I LIVE MY FAITH BY TRYING TO BE LIKE CHRIST. BY SERVING, AND ALWAYS BEING THERE TO LEND A HELPING HAND OR LIFT SOMEONE UP! I HAVE SERVED IN THE CHURCH SINCE I WAS 12 YEARS OLD SERVING IN MY YOUTH GROUPS AS THE PRESIDENT AND AS COUNSELORS/ SECRETARY. WHEN I TURNED 16 I WAS CALLED AS THE 1st ASSISTANT TO MY BISHOP, AND THEN WHEN THE BISHOP CHANGED I AGAIN WAS CALLED 1st ASSISTANT TO THE NEW ONE. I TRY TO FULFILL MY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY EVEN NOW AS I AM SERVING AS A MISSIONARY IN THE PARAGUAY ASUNCION NORTH MISSION! IT REALLY IS THE BEST 2 YEARS I WILL HAVE AND ITS VOLUNTARY!!
