Hi I'm Rebecca

I love my family and the example they have given me to serve others. Serving those around me brings me great joy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music and numbers. I play several instruments and enjoy singing. I am finishing a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management with an emphasis in finance and accounting. My husband and I run our own business, providing services for developmentally disabled adults. I am the mother of four. I enjoy volunteering in my community.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to LDS parents, but I am a Mormon by choice. I used to think that a testimony came in one big, defining moment. I have come to realize that my testimony is made up of many small, recurring moments: the quiet realization that my day is better because I took the time to include the Lord; the peace and comfort that comes when I pray and read my scriptures; the joy I feel while emulating Christ in my service to others; the internal conviction I receive when I bear testimony; the safety and security I experience as I keep my temple covenants. A testimony is a strong belief that moves one to action. Because of my testimony in the Atonement of my Savior, I know I can improve myself. As I lose myself in His service, I am becoming what He wants me to be. All good things come from the Lord, so I know I am following the Spirit when my service to others brings blessings to them and to me. Even when bad things happen to me, I know that the Lord will bring all things together for my good, if I have faith in Him and endure to the end.

How I live my faith

The Church has proven a valuable training ground for me. Everything I do well is due to the service I a have been asked to give in the Church. I have grown through many callings, and have loved each of them. I have had the opportunity to serve through leadership, to teach women and children, to plan activities, to provide music, to get involved in scouting, to develop public speaking skills, and to give individual service. I have grown up with a strong desire to be of service to those around me. I have been able to use the knowledge and skills I have gained through my church service, to reach out to those in my community, as our leaders encourage us to do. I have served in several leadership positions in schools and community organizations. I am grateful for those opportunities, as they have provided the chance for me to become friends with those of other faiths. We find that we have more in common than we thought, as we work together, and we become united in a cause for good. We have a desire to create a positive difference in the world, and we have a love for those we serve. I know our Father in Heaven loves each of us, and I strive to reflect that as I serve others, that they may also feel His love in their lives.
