Hi I'm Rebecca

I have six children. I love reading and crafts. I enjoy being a "domestic engineer!" And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read historical fiction and self-help books (mostly related to family relations.) I also enjoy sewing and crafts. I love the outdoors, but not necessarily if I'm cold! I have six children. Two of them have been NICU babies, one with heart disease requiring surgery as a newborn, and the other was a preemie.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, but as a teenager, I decided that I needed to know for myself if this church's teachings were true. I prayed and felt the Holy Spirit's warmth envelop me and let me know that I was on the right course. As I continue to learn and grow in the gospel, I receive strength to follow the commandments and to endure the challenges I face. It definitely helps me to keep better perspective in the situations I encounter.

How I live my faith

I love to help other people. I jump at service projects, because it makes me feel good and to forget myself. I am currently assigned to help organize our congregation's efforts at being prepared for emergencies, whether they are personal emergencies or more related to natural disasters and conditions.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Having faith in Jesus Christ helps improve marriages and families by encouraging us to follow the commandments. For example, the commandment to honor our parents helps us to learn to show respect and love to our parents; and the commandment to not commit adultery, as obvious as it seems, helps us learn to rely on the strength the Lord offers when we struggle with the challenges of every-day life in marriage, because when we first get married, we are "blind" to the imperfections of our spouse, but as we are with them day after day, we sometimes become numb to the good things they do and see the good in others more readily.
