Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two wonderful children. I just graduated from University. I am interested in the arts. I love to dance and sing. I also enjoy reading when I can find the time. Usually I am at home taking care of and playing with my children. My favorite thing to hear is the laughter of my children.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were members of this church since before my birth. I have been taught the gospel from a young age. I don't remember any moment when I knew that what I had been taught was true. But often I will have warm and peaceful feelings about what I have heard in church, what I am reading in the scriptures, or when I have asked a question in prayer. I know that the gospel as taught by this church is true. Just the other day when I was reading the Book of Mormon I felt a glow rising up within me and I knew that Heavenly Father was reconfirming the truth of what I was reading through the power of His Spirit. I think the best part about being a member of this church and having a testimony is that when you know that the Book of Mormon is true you also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. When you know these things you are able to accept that God speaks to modern prophets and that we have a living prophet on the earth today. I love knowing that God speaks to man today and the messages are not hidden from us but are available to everyone.

How I live my faith

I just moved to a new city and have not lived here long. I do get to visit three of the women in my area on a regular basis just to see how they are doing and to share a message of hope. I hope to become good friends with all these women along with the other women (sisters) in our area.

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Rebecca
Attendance in a Mormon church is open to all people who want to come unto Christ. Membership is not required to come and attend services. A Mormon church is open on every Sunday and services include Sacrament Meeting where we can renue the covenants we have made at baptism, Sunday School, and Priesthood and Relief Society Classes, along with classes for youth and children. The Mormon temple is open to members of the Mormon church who have kept the promises made at baptism and are prepared to continue in their path toward Heavenly Father. Temple attendance is a great blessing but also involves further promises and a person needs to really be ready to make those promises before they go to the temple. Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Rebecca
Mormon women are similar to women of other beliefs. We have our own political views, hair styles, clothing preferences, and family and work choices. What can be different about Mormon women is that we are taught to keep ourselves modest in dress, language, and actions. We know that families are forever so we put a great emphasis on our families and raising our children. Mormon women over the age of 18 are also in a world wide sisterhood called Relief Society where we do enlist our services to help others, be they our next door neighbor or a struggling family on the other side of the world. The Relief Society is just that, a society to bring relief. Yes, Mormons believe in equality of men and women! But we have to remember that equality does not mean that men and women are the same. We all have our place in life and responsibilities that come from that place. Show more Show less
