Hi I'm Rebecca

I am a wife and a mother of two. I love being a homemaker, but I am also working on my Masters Degree. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I had a military childhood. When my dad retired from the Navy we moved to a small town and I became a cultured country girl. I did classical ballet for many years, but also spent time out doors with my father and brothers. Though I had dyslexia as a child, education has been a big emphasis in my life. I am working on my Master Degree to become a counselor. I love to sew, cook, do crafts, and many other homemaking hobbies. Yet, my greatest joy comes from my husband, sons, and the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I feel it is right. I was raised in a home where both parents are members, but I have also gained my own beliefs. I want the all the promised blessing from my Heavenly Father. I want to live with Him and my family again someday. I know it is through the Gospel that my desires can be met.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live the values in which I believe. I personally try read the Book of Mormon or Bible daily. I also pray often to Heavenly Father. My husband and I pray and read scripture with our boys. I attend the temple as often as possible. I research into my family history. Finally, I help teach and plan activities for the teenage girls in my ward.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

We perform proxy baptisms because we believe that baptism is a necessary ordinance for Eternal Life. Many people die without the opportunity to choose if they want to be baptized. Performing proxy baptism will give them that choice from the Spirit World. The desire to participate in proxy baptisms is also motivated by our love for those who have lived before us.
