Hi I'm Becca

I love the performing arts, my husband and being a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been raised in the LDS faith by goodly parents. Our family motto growing up was be good and remember who you are. That has always been sound advice...remember who you are. I met my husband at college and he whirled me off my feet. We married in the House of the Lord for all eternity...forever. We are raising a family and pray for their success. Being a mom is the most challenging and most rewarding experience of my life. My family also incorporates the motto of 1) be good, 2) remember who you are, and we've added: 3) have fun while doing 1 and 2. I am also actively involved in my community, particularly with the performing arts. I love music and have found that when singing hymns of praise we truly are expressing our love to our Savior and in a way, sharing a testimony. We love to spend time together, especially in God's creations. We love to camp, hike, and simply watch the stars from the back yard. At my house we work hard and play hard. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon. I grew up with Family Home Evening, going to church on Sundays, mutual, and living the principles of the gospel. I had friends who were of my faith and friends who were not. I am a Mormon because I choose to be. As a youth, I was exposed to all kinds of family lifestyles. I recognized in my parents a strong belief in marriage, family and putting God first. As I dated, I knew that I wanted what they had. After the death of a great friend in high school, I had a spiritual experience that deepened my desire of an eternal family. I was blessed to find a wonderful companion who honored his priesthood, me and the Lord. While we have had many wonderful, joyous experiences, we have also had trials. One experience taught me the important role of being a mother. My daughter was life flighted to a medical center for a near-drowning accident. As her life was held in the balance, I received a priesthood blessing reminding me of who I was and what my responsibilities were to my children and family. The loving counsel I received helped me rearrange my priorities and put my focus on my children. I learned that my choices no longer affected just me, but my husband and my children as well. While a lot of things are important in this life, we are only allowed certain things in the next life, and one of those if family. Heavenly Father established a wonderous plan that enables families to be forever. I want to live my life in accordance to His plan, and in such a way that I can be with my eternal companion, and my family, not just here, but in the eternities as well.

How I live my faith

I love spiritual music, of all faiths and languages. I am often called to play the piano or organ for funerals, church, or youth groups. Because of my talents fostered in church service, I was able to obtain a job at our school in the music program. I love working with the youth. They are so amazing. They are energetic, excitable and I love to be around them with their optimism for life. I had a recent experience with the youth of our area in helping them prepare a song for a youth activity at Martin's Cove in Wyoming. As we talked about the interpretation of the song they were asked to sing, the youth shared their testimonies and love of the Savior and how this youth activity was going to change their lives. They were actively seeking a spiritual experience. In order to be their leader, I too must actively seek experiences that will strengthen me. Living the principles taught by our Heavenly Father helps us obtain experiences that will secure our testimony of Him. Listening to good and wholesome music is one way of drawing closer to our Heavenly Father. While playing at a funeral once I gained a stronger testimony of the Hymns. Hymns invite the spirit and it is by the spirit that we are taught. Spiritual music in any language, can touch my soul.
