Hi I'm Becky Aultman.

I am a devoted wife, a mother of six grown children and a grandmother of (almost) seven beautiful grandchildren. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a woman who is truly happy. What brings me the most happiness is my relationship to the Lord, my relationship with my husband, and my relationship with my family. So many people spend their lives seeking the "things" of life, rather than finding happiness with what they have, especially their family. Is my family perfect? Not hardly, but I love each one of them for who they are! I come from a large family. I have two brothers and two sisters and three half-brothers. I went on to have a nice size family, in today's world. I have six children, one daughter and five sons. I love them all, imperfections and all. I have six grandchildren, five grandsons and one granddaughter with another one on the way. Some of my family members are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon's), and some are not. I love them all equally. Do I wish that they were all active members of this Church? Yes, because I believe that the Church and the gospel of Jesus Christ can bring them the happiness and peace that each one of them are seeking for in their lives. But, I also believe the choice is theirs to make and not mine. I am just a normal, happy, over-weight, woman who loves her life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up attending another church but I had many questions of the soul. Is there really a God? Does my life have a purpose? Did I exist before I was born? What happens after I die? I grew up attendng church every Sunday and reading the Bible but I hungered for more. The Missionary's brought the gospel of Jesus Christ to my home when I was a young woman. One of the first passages that caught my attention in the Book of Mormon was in 2 Nephi: 33:10. It states, "And if ye shall believe in Christ ye will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ and they teach all men that they should do good." As I read the Book of Mormon, I learned about the gospel and God's Plan of Happiness. I had grown up without a lot of happiness in my life but my soul hungered for peach and happiness. A knowledge of these things put my questions in an eternal perspective. The Book of Mormon together with the Bible answered all the questions of my soul. In the Book of Mormon a prohet of the Lord named Moroni who lived on the American continent (Moroni 10:4) wrote: “And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. ” I took his challenge and prayed to know if the book and the church was true. My prayer was answered. This knowledge changed my life. I know why I am here on this earth and what my purpose in this life is for. It brought the peace and happiness into my life that my soul yearned for.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ's commandments. Even though the ten commandments were given to Moses so many years ago, they are applicable to us today. I live my faith by reading my scriptures. When I read my scriptures, they bring the spirit of Christ into my life that I can tangibly feel. The spirit helps guide me in makng correct choices each and every day. I live my faith by praying to my Father in Heaven. I live my faith by sharing the truthfulness of the gospel with others. I have known so many people who are seaching, like I was, for more truth and knowledge. The knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ can quench that thirst. I live my faith by preparing, with my wonderful husband, to serve a mission for the Lord. We will be leaving shortly to serve the Lord in a land far from ours with a different language than ours. We are excited about this unique opportunity to serve others.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Becky Aultman.
One of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" core beliefs is that family relationships can last forever - not just for this life. Just as some of life's sweetest joys can come through family associations, the loss of a beloved family member can be a source of our deepest sorrows. We lost our youngest son a couple of years ago in an automobile accident. It was the hardest thing our family has ever gone through. Our family has been "sealed" or bound together in a sacred ordinance performed in a Holy Temple. I have a strong testimony that this is true. I know that we will see him again and live together as a family in the eternities. Show more Show less
