Hi I'm Becca

I'm a stay at-home-mom. I'm an accountant. I'm a runner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated cum laude from a competitive accounting school and chose to be a stay-at-home mom. My husband works to provide the needs for our family, but I am prepared to work if I ever need to. We have a baby boy and plan to have more children. I love being a mother and teaching my son about this world. I'm glad that I can be the one to raise him, because if I don't raise him, other things will (televesion, friends, babysitters...etc). I like to know what he is being taught. I also love to run. Half-marathons are my favorite right now. Yesterday I ran my best time with a 1:39 (about 7:37 min/mile). I've done two full marathons and plan to do more. Full marathons just take a lot more time and are more physically pounding on my body.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I, too, care about my standing before God. I have questioned before on the existence of a God, but a quiet assurance confirms in my heart that there is most definitely a God. There are many churches out there to choose from, good churches and amazing people too, but I chose the Mormon religion because I feel it is the most correct. It is organized after the church that Jesus Christ established on the earth (approx 30 A.D. ;)) We have a living prophet who receives revelation to guide us for today's times, and we have 12 apostles, just as Christ did. The doctrine of this church is logically makes sense to me. And most importantly, I have prayed and pleaded with God to know if I should be a member of this church. I was born into the LDS faith and raised by devout parents. Despite this lineage and tradition, I would be willing to independently walk away from this faith if it wasn't true--if it wasn't the correct church. But during sacred, reverent times, when my heart is open and believing, God assures me that I am on the right path. I feel a peace in my heart, my mind feels clear, and I SMILE because I am overwhelmed with joy. The LDS faith brings happiness to my life. It helps me to live unburdened by sin and challenges me to be a better person. I have a testimony that this church is true, and I hope that you will take a challenge to ask God about your personal standing before Him-- and ask Him if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is correct. I promise that if you will pray to Him with an open heart, you will receive an answer as I have.

How I live my faith

I just moved to a new location, so I'm still working on becoming involved in this new community, but before I moved I was working with the eight and nine year old girls in the neighborhood. We met every other Thursday after school to help the girls develop talents and skills, do service projects, and have activities to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ and His Gospel. One of our activities included a nature hike, where we learned all about Joseph Smith and how he prayed to God to know about the standing of his soul before God and which church he should join.
