Hi I'm Rebecca

I love the dance of life as a wife, mother of 4, and ballet teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife (to my handsome first love) and a mother of four beautiful children, 2 boys, 2 girls, Growing up I always wanted to go to a University and get and education but in the back of my mind more than an education I wanted to be a Mom. I have used my education in psychology a little working at a domestic violence shelter and later at an eating disorder treatment center. But nothing compares to being a Mother. I love that every day I get to wake up and enjoy these beautiful people, it is the small moments or bursts of joy that sustain me, of course motherhood isn't always easy and is laced with challenges but I wouldn't change a thing. I enjoy photography, especially documenting my darling family. I love being in the outdoors, I always feel renewed and refreshed, I feel like those are the some of the best times we have as a family. I also love the arts. I recently started teaching ballet in my small community mainly because I want my daughters to have the opportunity to dance if they wish. My 4 year old daughter loves it so far. I try to be grateful for every day. I love my life, I feel so blessed and grateful to Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

My ancestors are Mormon. One of my great-great grandfather's walked across the plains with his family where they pulled only a handcart for all their families possessions, he was seven years old. However, I am a Mormon today not only because I was raised in the church but I have come to know for myself through prayer and study that the Book of Mormon is true and the Savior really lives. Living as a Mormon brings me peace and comfort in every aspect of my life. My Father passed away when I was seven years old. My family received comfort through the gospel of Jesus Christ which teaches that we will be with our loved ones again after this life. It all makes sense for me.

How I live my faith

I am the Relief Society President in my ward. I love being a part of the largest organization for women in the world. The three purposes of Relief Society are: Increase faith and personal righteousness, Strengthen families and homes, and Seek out and help those in need. If every woman around the globe went about doing these three things, I believe it would change the world. I also love the friendship and sisterhood found in the Relief Society.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is something we "testify" of, something we know to be true, our declaration of that knowledge. The way Mormons use the word testimony is in a spiritual sense of the word. My testimony develops in feelings that I receive in my heart that helps me to know that something is true. Show more Show less
