Hi I'm Rebekah.

I'm a California girl, born and raised. I have an addiction to gourmet cheeses and blogging. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Sacramento, California and lived in the same house my entire life. When I graduated high school, I up and decided to move to Provo, Utah; a place I never thought about moving before. Provo has been my home for the past four years and it has cemented itself in my heart as one of my favorite places on this earth. Art history is my passion. Music is my love. And blogging is my hobby. For the next 18 months, I will be serving a mission for the Mormon church in Daejeon Korea. Nothing could make me more happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my faith makes me feel whole. I am complete when I study the gospel of Jesus Christ. Both of my parents are members of the church, and so I grew up in a gospel centered home. But that doesn't mean that my identity as a Mormon was decided for me. When I was 13, I decided that I couldn't really call myself a Mormon unless I had read the entire Book of Mormon for myself. It took me several months, but I when I finally finished it, I prayed to know if it was true. And as I prayed, I felt that it was. I felt that I had had those sweet whisperings in my heart the whole time I read the book. I felt the love of my Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ as I prayed every morning and night while reading. Being a Mormon is a conscience decision I make everyday to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. It feels me with an indescribable, deep, unending joy every day. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is an everyday practice. I pray and study my scriptures every day. Those quiet moments of contemplation bring a beautiful calm into my life. I know that I'm happier when I make those moments of meditation on the scriptures a priority. My faith permeates everything that I do. I love fashion! I think it's a fun form of artistic self-expression. So my faith is reflected in the way I dress. I love spending time with my room mates and girls in my apartment complex, finding just the right outfit, while still being modest. I try my best to find small ways to serve other people every day. Whether it's doing dishes for my roomies that have tests, helping someone carry their groceries up the stairs, or just giving someone a friendly smile, I believe that every moment of service helps. I guess I'm unique in the fact that I've decided to serve a mission for the Mormon church. I will be sent to Daejeon Korea. I am beyond elated!
