Hi I'm Bob

I'm a husband, a father, a CPA and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Arizona all of my life except for the two years that I spent serving my church on a mission in Southern Brazil. I have a Bachelors Degree in Accounting and I have my own public accounting firm. I love working with numbers and helping other people get control of their finances. The thing I truly love most is spending time with my family. We love the being the outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, hike, and explore the outdoors, especially the mountains of Arizona. I have three awesome boys. One in college, one on a mission for the LDS Church, and one in high school. I have a beautiful wife who we love to spend time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church but I gained a testimony of it's truthfulness as a teenager. I had prayed for a while to gain a testimony for myself and one day as I was reading the Book of Mormon, I had the strong overwhelming feeling that it was true. I have had and I continue to have many experiences and feelings which reinforce the truthfulness of the gospel to me. I love it's teachings and want to be able to live with my family for the eternities. The teachings of the church strive to strengthen families and bring them closer together through a love of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have had the privilege of working with the youth from ages 12 - 18 of the church for the past twenty years. I spend one night a week with them, I spend time with them on Sundays and many weekends you can find me camping with the young men. Being with the youth helps me live the gospel because I know that I need to be a strong example to them. Most of the time, they are the example to me.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

A commandment from the Old Testament is to tithe. Tithing from the members goes to pay for the church's operations. None of the Clergy in the church are paid. Tithing is used to build, repair, and operate the many church buildings and church operations throughout the world. Show more Show less
