Hi I'm Robby

I'm the middle child, I play Trombone, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a family of 5 people: mom, dad, I also have a older and younger sister ( I'm the middle child). Soon after I was born my family moved in with my Grandmother (she was a widow my Grandfather died when my mom was a young girl.) One day she pulled out my Grandfathers old Trombone, she attempted to play the "old thing" but couldn't really get a sound out of it. I thought it was so cool. Right at that time the seed for the love of music and Trombone was planted in my heart. When I turned 12 years old I decided to learn how to play Trombone. I wasn't very good. In order to be better I found out how many hours my friends were practicing and practiced double the amount they were doing. Slowly I started to get better and better. Eventually, I was able to get admitted into a University Music Program.

Why I am a Mormon

I sometimes think back to my oldest memories from childhood, I find out that I always knew God existed and loved me, I knew that because I felt it in my heart and mind. When I was 7 years old I decided to read the Book of Mormon. It was my choice to do so, no one was pushing me to read it, no one was there to remind me to finish the task of reading it, I did it all by myself, it was 100% completly my choice. I really wanted to know it was true. Because I had this desire you would find me reading it everywhere. In fact I would wash dishes with one hand and read with the other. I was still 7 years old when I finished my first reading of the entire book. After I finished I knelt down and said a prayer. In that prayer I asked God the Eternal Father in the name of Jesus Christ if the Book of Mormon was true. I recieved my calm, peacefull answer that it was true through the still small voice of the Holy Ghost. Ever since then I have never looked back. Once I read the Book of Mormon I realized that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints was not "just another church", or "religous group." It was the only true church on the face of the whole earth. I didn't look for a church that fitted my beliefs. I let God teach me more truth tell me what to believe through his Holy Spirit and show me which Church was his. I ended up believing what my Father in Heaven wanted me to believe not what "I wanted" or what I was "born into" or even what my "parents taught me". I found truth through direct communication through the Almighty Father. I did not learn spritual truths through a "middle-man". The "middle-man" in my life sometimes happened to be my parents and other spiritual leaders that taught me spiritual things as loving and kind as they were and still are it was not through parents or loved spiritual leaders but through God in prayer to Him that I learned spiritual truth.

How I live my faith

I feel like my whole life should be devoted to helping others and doing good things. Everyday I go out and try to be an example to others. I have found so much peace from knowing that the Book of Mormon is true that I have devoted 2 years of my life to sharing with other people about my beliefs and faith, this is called "Being a Missionary" in this church. At my own expense I volunteer my life to helping others being happy and finding the same peace that I have found in the Gosple of Jesus Christ. I decided to put away even my most loved passions such as playing Trombone, and being with my family to serve others and the Lord.
