Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married to my husband of almost 20 years. We have 3 children. Most of my time and energy at this stage of life is spent in being a wife and mother. I love to attend my kids events, cheer my husband on as he competes in triathlons and manage our household. It brings me my greatest joy but can be exhausting keeping up with everything! I love yellow tulips, the laughter of my children, spending time with my husband, a beautiful morning sky, love notes, volunteering in my community and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a Mormon home by parents who were kind, devoted to each other and taught us of the divinity of Jesus Christ. Through the years I have gained my own testimony that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, and the wonderful blessing of having a living prophet on the Earth today. One experience that helped my faith to grow was the time I spent serving as a full time missionary in the Hawaiian Islands. I was able to devote all my time for 18 months, to serving others and studying and pondering the teachings and life of Jesus Christ. I have not had one particular moment when I knew the teachings of the church were true but rather several experiences on many occasions. I have felt the sweet feelings of the Holy Ghost speaking peace to my heart. I know we are eternal beings sent to Earth by a loving Heavenly Father. We lived with him before we were born and we may return to live with him once again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ and serve those around me. I currently serve in the Primary organization of the Church. This means I spend much of Sunday with the children ages 3-12. I enjoy teaching them that they are children of a loving Heavenly Father who knows them by name. I love their sweet innocence and the simple prayers and talks they share each Sunday. My husband serves as the Bishop of our congregation. He also has a full time job, volunteers in the community, competes in triathlons and is a very involved father with our children. Life is busy, but so rewarding!

What do Mormons believe about family?

Rebecca
Our families are very important to us. We believe the family relationship is eternal. It gives me so much peace knowing life will continue beyond death and we can live with our families forever. Show more Show less
