Hi I'm Rebekah

I am a high school teacher. I am a Californian. I am a redhead, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school English teacher, living the single LDS life, and I love the time I can spend with family and friends. The world is a wonderful place, and I love exploring and learning about all the wonderful people and adventures it has to offer. I am a friend, an aunt, a sister, a daughter, a teacher, a student, a redhead, and an aspiring homemaker.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because when I attend my church meetings and I am taught about the gospel of Jesus Christ, I can feel that what is being taught is true. When I pray and read my scriptures, I can feel that what I am learning is true. I am happier and there is more peace in my life when I study the fullness of gospel of Jesus Christ, which fullness is taught in the Mormon faith. I am a Mormon, because the standards are high. This may sound like a strange reason to be a member of an organization, but because I live such high standards, I live a simple, often-times, worry-free life. My path is straight. The standards that I live act as bumpers in a bowling lane, and when I use and live them in my life, then my aim and goal is easier to achieve. Through my Mormon faith, I know I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father, and I can live with Him again and my family by remaining humble, faithful, and obedient. This simple fact alone brings the greatest joy and hope one can possess. Therefore, because I am a Mormon, I constantly have joy and hope in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I'd like to think I live it in everything I do, but I am human and make mistakes. However, I read my scriptures and pray to my Father in Heaven daily. I try to view others as children of God, which allows me to have more compassion, understanding and charity for my fellow man. I am a teacher, so I try to emulate my faith by demonstrating the joy you can have in your life when you abstain from drugs and alcohol. I also show my students the happiness that comes from living a virtuous life. I have the wonderful opportunity to serve in my church as part of a women organization called the Relief Society. I am a counselor to the president of the group, and I have many opportunities to visit with other girls my age and in my same life circumstances. I help take care of them spiritually and temporally. It is a great opportunity for me to be selfless and more Christlike.
