Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hey there! My name is Rebecca, and I am 24 years old. I was born in Florida, then lived in New Mexico for a couple of years, and I now live in Arizona with my parents and my younger brother, Christopher. We also have four cats and a golden retriever puppy...they are part of our family, too! I was homeschooled for three years, and when I was 19 years old, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in English Literature and Religious Studies. I'm currently working as a Corporate Operations Data Analyst at University of Phoenix. I am a convert to the Church, the first one in my family. When I was 15 years old, I was introduced to the Church through a friend. As I went to church and read the scriptures, I felt something special. I came to know of my Heavenly Father's love for me and all of His children. When I was 19 years old, I was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, on November 15, 2008. It was the happiest day of my life!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father. I love Jesus Christ and want to follow His teachings. The gospel helps me to understand who I am and how I can use my life for good. Everyday life can be hectic and confusing, but the gospel provides me with a feeling of peace and contentment I have not found anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith personally by going to church each week, praying to my Heavenly Father morning and night (and throughout the day, as well), and spending some time each day studying the scriptures. As I continually do these things, my testimony of my Savior is strengthened, and the love I have for Him and my Heavenly Father grows. Additionally, I try to attend the temple at least once a week. I also live my faith by serving others. I currently serve in my congregation by helping others with their family history and by assisting with monthly "firesides" (an evening worship service). I also serve as a visiting teacher in my congregation. Visiting teaching is a program within the Church that allows all the women to serve each other and ensures everyone is being taken care of. All the women in the congregation are divided into pairs and given the names of a few women. Once a month, we visit those women, share a short lesson, and find out how they are doing. In times of heartache or sorrow, a visiting teacher can offer comfort. In times of hardship, a visiting teacher can support and strengthen. In times of joy, a visiting teacher can rejoice with them. I love visiting teaching, and I believe it is designed by God. Through visiting teaching, each woman is both a teacher and a student, both a giver and a receiver. As visiting teachers, we can look after each other, find friendship and comfort, and strengthen our gospel knowledge and testimonies.
