Hi I'm Becky Harrington

I grew up in El Paso, Texas. I'm a retired Dental Hygienist. I drive a 10-wheeler every fall in harvest in Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sew, cook, read, and crochet. I also love to make beautiful quilts. I play the piano (a little) and the accordion. I sing in the choir. I am a mother and a grandmother. I have worked in retail, and in the Dental field. I also drive a 10-wheeler for about 7 weeks during harvest. I'm not afraid of a challenge: I can change electrical outlets and light switches, I love to help with carpentry. I've even done some of my own landscaping with the help of a brother-in-law. I love old movies and uplifting music. I can never have enough friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I always believed in the Savior, Jesus Christ and in our Heavenly Father, but in my teenage years, I wanted to KNOW for myself that They really existed. Through reading, praying and a vast number of experiences throughout my life, I have come to know for myself of the truthfulness of His gospel. As I face trials or challenges and turn to Heavenly Father in prayer, I receive answers to my prayers and I have found peace, even in the midst of difficult trials. As I strive to do the things He has asked me to do, I have come to learn that He always keeps His promise. I am showered with many blessings and tender mercies. Living the gospel brings me much joy and happiness.

How I live my faith

I have worked in many different areas in the church. I have worked with the young girls between the ages of 12 and 18. I have taught them in church on Sundays, gone to girl's camp with them and been involved in weekly activities with them. I have worked with the smaller children as well, teaching Sunday lessons and teaching them songs. I have taught Sunday School. I have served as a Visiting Teacher since I was 18. This calling has me visit two or more Sisters from church every month. While with them, I leave them with a little spiritual thought and find out how they are doing in their lives and try to help out when it's needed. I have also served in the woman's organization teaching and presiding.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Becky Harrington
It is important for us to take care of our bodies so that we can be healthy and strong and able to work and talk care of our selves and our families. Our bodies are called temples because they house our spirits. Just as it is difficult to feel the spirit in a dirty and cluttered room, it is difficult for our spirits to dwell and grow properly in a polluted and unhealthy body. This body, we believe, is a gift to us from our Heavenly Father and we should take care of it as best we can. Show more Show less
