Hi I'm Rebecca
I love people and I'm a Mormon.
I am a school social worker. I love hiking the mountains, camping, painting watercolors, singing in my car, and playing the piano. I love to read books. I like cooking new things. I speak Italian and Spanish because I lived in Europe for a couple of years. I love getting to know people from different cultures and really love watching old funny movies.
Why I am a Mormon
I'm a Mormon because I choose to be. My parents taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ from a young age but I remain in this church because I know for myself it is true. I read the Book of Mormon before I was eight years old and I know it's true. I know God answers my prayers and He is real. He has answered so many of my prayers that I could never doubt it. I also have a very strong belief that my Savior truly gave His life for me and suffered not only my sins but also my pains, sicknesses, sorrows, and hard/sad moments in life (see Alma 7:11-13 in the Book of Mormon).
How I live my faith
I live my faith in my actions towards others and the way I treat them. I know we are all God's children and He loves all of us. I try to follow my Savior's example in everything I do. I reach out to those around me and serve my community through various service projects. I'm currently volunteering with a group of kids teaching an art class that is a lot of fun. Right now, I volunteer as an usher in a new temple (house of God) that hasn't been dedicated yet- so anyone can visit. I also volunteer in my ward (local congregation) as the "Strengthening Committee Co-Chair" by helping members become self-reliant physically, mentally, and spiritually. I've organized speakers/presenters to help ward members with emergency preparedness and other various topics. In the past I have volunteered helping young women, babysitting, playing the piano, canning food, quilting, singing in choir, etc. I also enjoy visiting teaching-meaning I visit a couple of sisters monthly to learn from them, serve them, and share our faith with each other. I attend church meetings weekly to partake of the sacrament, remember my Savior, and renew the promises I made when I was baptized. I also follow the prophet's teachings and love listening to him and the modern apostles speak during General Conference (broadcasted worldwide twice a year). I trust in God and know that He guides me when I turn to Him in prayer.
