Hi I'm Becca

I love life, music, people and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a strong believer in life long learning and hope to be able to pass that love of learning along to everyone I meet. I think its important finding joy in simple things. I will never forget the day I was in the play-yard with my pre-school class only to find a small group of them laughing and watching the leaves fall off the trees. I think its a necessity of life to have dirt under your finger nails and sand in your toes. "Men are that they might have joy," (2 Nephi 2:25) We have more control over the joy in our lives than we think we do. I love people, music, photography, and being outside. Its the little things in life that count.

Why I am a Mormon

I mean, we're Christians..there are a lot of Christians around. So why be a member of THIS church. It boils down to my testimony in a loving God and my Savior Jesus Christ. I know God, I am His child. I know He wants me home "for behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors" (Alma 34:32). How do we do that? In Christ's ministry to the America's He commands us to be like him, "therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am" (3 Nephi 27:27). That seems a nearly impossible request as Christ was and is perfect. How am I supposed to be like Him? My dear friend Nephi gives me confidence in this task, acknowledging that He shall prepare away for us to accomplish any task He gives us, "I know that the Lord giveth no unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them." (1 Nephi 3:7) He's provided a path that began before the Earth existed. Throughout time, he provided prophets on the Earth as guides, from Adam to Abraham, Christ directed His servants. He commanded them to keep records so that we might know Him. Likewise, He and the Father answered a small boy named Joseph Smith's prayer to know the truth. Christ is the center, and the head. He has and always will lead his church. Likewise, he has provided a prophet today to lead and guide us under His direction. Thomas S. Monson is called of God. Not because of his education, his life history or heritage. He is called because Christ chose him. The Gospel brings me peace even in the hardest of times. It is the way to Eternal life and Happiness.

How I live my faith

I've been able to serve in different ways in the church. From working to plan and put on events, to teaching during Sunday meetings, to visiting with struggling individuals there is always work to be done and I am so grateful that we have the opportunities to help in the work. I've grown to appreciate the people who really go out of their way to make others feel safe and welcome. I know we all have a part to play in Gods plan and we are all here to help each other make it back to Him.
