Hi I'm Becky

I'm a stay-at-home mom with a passion for writing novels, running, and dancing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom to boys, so I know how to pronounce a lot of dinosaur names and how to clean up legos. I enjoy driving my kids around and helping them achieve what they've set out to do. Before I had kids, I worked as an English teacher at a college. I plan to go back to teaching once my kids are older.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home with really great parents. My mom is Mormon. My dad wasn't sure whether God exists. As a young child, I could see that my prayers were answered, so I learned that God is real. But I still wasn't sure about my church. I had a lot of friends from other religions. I knew their religions were good too, and I wanted to know for myself if the Mormon church was right. At age 17, I decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it is true. I felt overwhelming peace in my heart and knew I should follow the teachings of the Mormon church.

How I live my faith

I try to be kind and friendly to others. I want to treat others the way Jesus would. Right now, my husband is a bishop, which is like being a minister in another religion. He also has a full-time job apart from being the bishop. A lot of times, he is gone at night and Sundays. He counsels with members about their problems and tries to help them. While he does that, I am usually home with our children, making sure they get to all their activities and that the homework gets done. When I was a youth leader a few years ago, my husband was the one staying home with the kids at night. So, we've taken turns.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

I love the Bible. I have read it from cover to cover and I refer to it often. I know the Bible is the word of God. We regard the Bible, along with the Book of Mormon as holy scripture. Show more Show less
