Hi I'm Rebecca

I'm a daughter to 2, Sister to 7, Wife to 1, and Mother of 4. I'm a Scouter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I prefer the old fashioned way of talking to people - face to face. I like to scrapbook - when I get the time. My favorite sound is the laughter of my children.

Why I am a Mormon

My dad joined the church before he met my mom. My Mom is a descendent of pioneers. We went to church every Sunday as I grew up and I learned through my parents' faith to develop my own faith. When I prepared for a mission I realized that even though doubts popped up sometimes, I knew that I could not deny the truthfulness of the things I had been taught. I felt the power of those truths every time I taught them while I served my mission in England and in my various church callings since. I feel the power of those truths every day as I try to live by them.

How I live my faith

Even though my oldest son is only six, I get to work with the Cub Scouts in my Ward. I've developed an appreciation for the Scouting program and how it helps develop faith and confidence in young boys and men. I also try to be active in my community by participating in the Parent Teacher Organizations of the schools my children attend. I feel it is important for parents to be involved in their children's education, including volunteering at the schools when possible.

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Some people call us anti-gay marriage. Truly we are pro-family. We believe that the family is central to God's plan. The ideal family is to have a loving mother and father who are legally wedded. When the life giving act of sex is kept sacred within the marriage contract between a man and a woman - then the whole family is blessed. Any time one acts in violation of the law of chastity (keeping that act within marriage) then Satan's power can destroy the family. Because this is a corruptible world, and our bodies are corruptible, we might have inclinations and urges that are contrary to what God has outlined for the Family. God loves us no matter what mistakes we make, but we can only recieve certain blessings when we keep His commandments. We as Latter-day Saints also try to love all of God's children. We believe we can love a person without loving or condoning their sin. Show more Show less
