Hi I'm Becky

I'm a Mother and Grandmother and I teach exercise and dance to seniors from a chair to music they love and remember. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of six children. I we moved many times in my younger years, and I met people from many walks of life. I graduated from high school and also college with a BS degree in Physical Education and Dance. I performed with my college folk dance group in New York City at Lincoln Center, I taught Children's Creative Dance to children for 12 years. I also taught preschool for Pre-kindergarten age children for 8 years. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 46 years. I have 5 children, and 17 grandchildren. We adopted two of our children when they were four and six. I was a caregiver for three years with my Dad for my Mother who had Alzheimer's disease. She passed away in the year 2000. I started a support group for families with children with Attachment Disorder and have volunteered with the Alzheimer's Association. In the year 2004 I started teaching dance and exercise from a chair and in 2006 I started my own company and have been teaching since then. I teach to about 40 facilities, retirement, assisted, skill nursing and memory care. They love moving to the music, and they exercise longer and are getting increased mobility and fitness . I love hiking, snowshoeing, jogging, biking, camping, gardening, growing vegetables, sewing, reading classics, classical music, collecting children's books, and writing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, and was taught by faithful parents who kept their covenants, and had strong testimonies of the gospel. My Mother was a member of the Mormon Tabernacle choir for over 20 years. I was introduced to prophets and apostles. and sat at the base of the famed Tabernacle organ while my Mother practiced and performed. I felt the spirit of the Holy Ghost at an early age and felt a sense of comfort and peace as I sat between both my parents at church each week. I had great examples from faithful grandparents and great-grandparents. I have ancestors who joined the church and sacrificed to build up the kingdom of our Lord. Many had personal testimonies and knew Joseph Smith, one even painted a portrait him in his uniform. Others traveled with the pioneers and answered the call of a prophet to settle in regions of Southern Utah. Because of their examples I have been strengthened and have a knowledge of the truthfulness of this gospel. I Believe in the Atoning sacrifice of the Savior Jesus Christ, I know He lives, and that we have a living prophet today, even Thomas S. Monson. I know Joseph Smith is a true prophet and restored the same church that Jesus Christ set up in the meridian of time. I am thankful for temples where families can be sealed together forever. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and all His children and is guiding this church today! I know that with faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ we can get through every trial and trouble!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith each day, by looking for ways to serve others who may be in need, and donate to humanitarian and welfare organizations when possible. I try each day to be like our Savior Jesus Christ, and love and forgive others. I finished a two year service mission as a Hostess for the Conference Center giving tours. I volunteered for eight hours a week. I continue to serve in my local church area and have served with all ages. I have been a Visiting Teacher in the Relief Society the largest women's organization since I was 18 years old. I love being a Mother and Grandmother, serving and helping my children and grandchildren whenever possible and trying to be a good example. The gospel of Jesus Christ is my life I find joy in serving God's children whenever possible. I try to keep his commandments and pray daily to Him to stay true to the faith!
