Hi I'm Becca

I'm a mom, a feminist, an internet superhero, a widow, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Massage Therapist by training, and I am the mom of two wonderful kids. I love books! I really love books! I find my home library full of "old friends" and love meeting new ones. I have chosen to stay home with my kids, and that has not stopped me from expanding my mind and my abilities. I just get to do so in my jammies. I have been involved with some great internet communities, including those that have helped provide internet access to those in the middle east trying to talk about the revolutions and to organize protests. I love to talk about women's health, and have concentrated on expanding my knowledge in that area, with the plan to go to Nursing School when my kids are all in school full time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because I have a personal testimony of the principles of the gospel. I know from my experiences that living the gospel of Christ, and listening to the Holy Spirit brings happiness. I have been challenged with things in my life that I thought I could not rise above, but I have found that each time I was too weak, that Christ was strong enough for both of us. I wrote that first paragraph before my husband died in 2012. It is still true! I have been challenged with one of life's greatest tests, to be a widow at 31 with two young children. Each time I think it is too much God has lifted me up, and I have grown closer to Christ because of this. I have had to depend on the close relationship I've cultivated with both my Heavenly Father, and his son Jesus Christ so that I could have the strength to put another foot forward. I have been able to feel their love for me, and see it in the miracles that have happened as I've put my faith in them. My life doesn't look like all those pretty pictures of happy LDS families, it is just me and the kids right now, trying to move forward with faith, believing in the promises of Christ, and relying on his atonement to make us whole.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to treat each person I come into contact with as Christ would. I tend to listen first and love, and leave everything else for later. I have a very diverse group of people who I call friends, few who share my religious views, and yet I know that each one of them is a child of God, and I know that it is very important that they feel loved. I think that when love comes first, when and if they ever they want to know about Christ, that they know I'm there for them.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I grew up in South East Alaska, and just walking around my home there shows me that there is a God, when I am out hiking, or boating, and I feel the stillness around me, I just know that He is there, that God created this world for us. Just like I know that I love my parents, and they love me, I know that I have a Father in heaven who loves me. The more I study the human body, and how it works, I know that there is a God, and I know that he created us. The more I study of science, and medicine the deeper my faith becomes. Show more Show less
