Hi I'm Becky

I'm a mommy and wife. I'm a friend, daughter, sister, cousin, and neighbor. I'm a reader, thinker, teacher and leader.

About Me

I'm the homeschooling mom to five wonderful children, four surviving. I am a college graduate, former public school teacher and voracious reader. My hobbies include writing, researching, natural healing options, scrapbooking, traveling, geocaching, hiking, biking, swimming and playing games. Some say that I march to the beat of a different drummer, since I enjoy studying how people all around the world live, and try to incorporate the best practices from other cultures into my life, rather than just doing what all my friends are doing around me. I'm an attachment parent who wore my babies in a sling, slept with them, and breastfed them until they were ready to grow past that stage. I teach them based on what they show the need to learn, rather than what the "experts" say they need. I used to be one of the "experts" and I know how arbitrary their choices can be. I have two sons with Asperger's Syndrome, so I have learned what I can do to help them to thrive in our world. I have dealt with depression and addiction, both my own and in my family, and with the strength and information the Lord has given me, have been able to overcome many difficult obstacles to a happy life. I'm in love with my husband of 20 years. He takes me on a date every week, and gives me anything I want or need. Yes, I know you're jealous.

Why I am a Mormon

I was "sort of" raised in the gospel. My mother joined the LDS church when I was three, but we did not stay active in it very long. When I was a teenager, and my life was pretty miserable, I did not believe that God existed, because I couldn't see how He could allow such suffering. A friend, knowing that my main escape was reading, suggested that I read The Book of Mormon. As I read it, I knew that it was true, and that it is the word of God. The Holy Ghost witnessed the truth in my mind and my heart so strongly that I could not deny it. So I began coming to church, where I felt loved and accepted, and as my testimony grew, I felt God's love for me. I no longer ever question whether God exists, and He has taught me why suffering must happen in this life. I have had many trials, and I am grateful for the humility and compassion these trials have given me.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the cubs scouts for many years. The boys I teach are usually around 8-10 years old, and so full of energy! I also enjoy visiting with women, some of whom I have an assignment to visit and care for. I also often visit with friends who suffer, as I have, with depression and addiction. To teach and love these special people is one of the reasons that I have been given those trials; so I can relate to and help those who feel isolated and alone. Together, we struggle toward the Savior to be healed by Him.
